Royals win fifth straight with 5-4 victory over Twins

A week ago, the Royals’ bullpen blowup reached its most perplexing stage. After a loss at Minnesota, the group’s ERA had ballooned to 5.13. This from a pen considered by some to be baseball’s best last year. A week later, order has been restored. Three relievers delivered four scoreless innings Saturday, a perfect performance after Danny Duffy issued a leadoff walk in the...

Duffy and Davis Solidify Royal’s Bullpen

  If you have been reading Royals Blue over the past month or so, you will know how nervous I have been about the reigning MLB best bullpen. This spring the Royal relievers seemed to have lost their way.  Everyone from the incredibly reliable Greg Holland to Louis Coleman seemed incredibly hittable.  With such success the year before, and a battle for the starting rotation that...

Danny Duffy needs to Move to Rotation

by John Viril— Danny Duffy lit up radar guns in an impressive two-inning relief stint against the Astros Wednesday night, helping Kansas City take a 6-4 victory in 11 innings. Duffy pitched in the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings and struck out four. Forget about the 3 hits and one walk. His stuff was nasty. He regularly hit 98 on the gun with his fastball, and his curve made...

Moose, Duffy come through in the clutch to help Royals top Astros

OK, so it's only mid-April, and we're not going to do the freak-out panic thing that most Royals fans have been doing in the first two weeks. On the other hand, this was a terrific come-from-behind win, even if it was against the lowly Astros. This was a win and a game that could give a big boost to struggling hitters such as Mike Moustakas, who slammed the game-winning home...

One bright spot? Duffy looks dominating in relief

It'™s normally pretty hard to find bright spots in a 7-1 thumping. But the Royals can at least take some comfort in the relief outing turned in by left-hander Danny Duffy during their pounding at Minnesota. Duffy, recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday morning, came on in relief of starter James Shields and retired all seven hitters he faced, three on strikeouts. It was Duffy...

Dayton Moore: Duffy still could start season at Omaha, as a starter

With all the talk lately in the Royals' camp about left-hander Danny Duffy being moved to the bullpen, keep in mind one tiny detail: It's not a lock that he'll open the season in Kansas City.
