Twins' Tyler Duffey: Competing for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffey will compete for a spot in the Twins rotation this spring, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Duffey's chances of claiming a starting gig to open the season looked more promising when pitchers and catchers reported to spring camp last week, but after the club acquired Jake Odorizzi from the Rays on Saturday, it appears only one rotation spot is truly up for grabs at this point. Though all 56 of Duffey's appearances came in relief last season, he was often called upon to record more than three outs and made 36 starts the prior two seasons for the Twins, so building up stamina to work more innings shouldn't be an issue for the right-hander. In addition to Duffey, free-agent pickup Anibal Sanchez and a healthy Phil Hughes look like the top candidates for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, with the pitchers' performances in spring likely to dictate whom receives the nod. Duffey's surface numbers over the past two seasons (5.91 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 204 innings) aren't impressive, but his 4.38 FIP, .334 BABIP and low 62.3 percent strand rate over that span suggest bad luck may explain some of his struggles.

Twins' Tyler Duffey: Role may change this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffey will be stretched out in spring training in order to pitch more innings, Darren Wolfson of 1500 am ESPN Twin Cities reports

It's not clear if Duffey will be used in long relief or try to compete for a job in the starting rotation. Duffey moved to the bullpen last season after struggling as a starter in 2016, and he showed signs of improvement despite declining late in the season. He had a 2.10 ERA in his first 17 outings, but a 6.55 ERA after May 30. Duffey will likely move into a lower-profile role if he remains in relief after the Twins boosted their bullpen with the offseason additions of Addison Reed and Fernando Rodney.

Twins' Tyler Duffey: Needs rest after three-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffey likely won't be able to pitch again until Thursday after registering a three-inning save in the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox, the Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

After struggling in July with a 7.36 ERA, Duffey has given up just one run in 9.1 innings with a 7.7 K/9 in August. The Twins remain a bit unsettled at the back end of the bullpen following the July 31 trade of Brandon Kintzler, but Duffey still seems to rank behind at least Matt Belisle and Trevor Hildenberger in the pecking order for saves.

Twins' Tyler Duffey: Mixed results in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffey has posted a 4.63 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 46.2 innings in his first season as a reliever.

After coming up in the Twins' farm system as a starter, Duffey struggled in the rotation for two seasons before moving to the bullpen. Now as a reliever, Duffey has been able to pump up his velocity to 92 mph on average, and with that increase has come an improvement in strikeout rate.

Twins' Tyler Duffey: Move to bullpen pays dividends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffey has a 3.68 ERA and 9.6 K/9 in his first season as a reliever.

It's beginning to look like the Twins made the right choice in moving their young pitcher to the bullpen. After posting an ERA of 6.43 with 7.7 K/9 in 26 starts last season, the right-hander has shown great improvement in both categories this season. Add on the six holds he's recorded along the way, and this season could be the start of a bright future for the 26-year-old.
