So.....a Kyle Davies injury and Vin Mazzaro's horrible outing on Monday mean it's Danny Duffy time in KC. Is it a smart move? I don't know, but it's probably not in the best interests of protecting their rights to his services in the future. Is it necessary? Probably. Who else are they gonna bring up? I think Mazzaro is getting kind of a raw deal in all this, but you can't have that bad of an outing, I guess, and survive. Why bring him back out after he gave up 10 runs in one inning? He obviously wasn't mentally prepared to go and his stuff wasn't exactly working. I've heard the Royals reported as preaching lately that they don't want to bring a pitcher up just to send him right back down and hurt his confidence. I guess that only applies to the chosen few? I know Mazzaro isn't Duffy or Montgomery or Lamb, but he is projected as a 4 or 5 starter if the Royals' system starts producing like the experts think it will. I'm gonna keep the summaries brief tonight.AAA - Omaha: Storm Chasers 12,
