DANNY DUFFY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Frustrated Royals send Duffy to mound to try to salvage series

The Cleveland Indians are doing their best to remain a serious postseason contender. Seeking a seventh win in eight games, the Indians can record a series sweep by handing the host Kansas City Royals a fourth consecutive defeat Sunday night. One night after rolling to a 6-1 victory in the series opener, Cleveland (70-64) used RBIs singles from Michael Brantley and Carlos Santana...

Royals’ Alex Gordon says he’ll delay free agency

On his first day as a Kansas City Royal, Josh Willingham leaned back in a clubhouse chair and took in his surroundings. Across the room, a group of reporters ringed a corner locker. Willingham turned to new teammate Danny Duffy and asked about the status of the locker’s inhabitant. “So Alex Gordon,” Willingham said to Duffy, “he’s like the face of the franchise?” Duffy...

Duffy, Royals look to complete the season sweep of Rockies

If the Kansas City Royals are to continue their surge, they likely must find a way to end Jorge De La Rosa's current success at Coors Field. Looking for a fourth consecutive victory, the AL Central-leading Royals try to prevent the Colorado Rockies' left-hander from winning his sixth straight home start Wednesday night. Omar Infante had four hits with four RBIs and James...

Duffy finally gets some run support, Royals rout Diamondbacks 12-2

PHOENIX -- The Kansas Royals had given Danny Duffy almost no run support over his previous four starts and little all season, so they were anxious give him something, anything against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ten runs on three swings did the trick nicely. Billy Butler had a three-run homer among his four hits, Nori Aoki hit a grand slam and the Royals gave Duffy some rare run support...

Royals Edge Twins, Win 3-2

It was looking like another game that would require Danny Duffy to throw a shut out just to even qualify for a win. Danny Duffy made one mistake pitch four innings of Wednesday’s matchup against the Twins. Duffy left a fastball up to Josh Willingham, and he hit it a very long way. Duffy settled down until the fifth inning when he put two on with one out. Ned Yost decided to pull...

Duffy getting used to working with limited run support

Danny Duffy watched as Kansas City's offense was shut down in the series opener with Minnesota, something he's also grown accustomed to witnessing during his starts. The left-hander hopes that's not the case Wednesday night against the visiting Twins as he looks to help the Royals avoid a third straight defeat. Duffy (5-10, 2.47 ERA) is the only pitcher in baseball with...

The 'PG' version of Danny Duffy is still pretty nasty to opposing hitters

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals left-hander Danny Duffy fully admits there was a time when he was a little out of control on the mound. When he got mad, he showed it -- especially vocally. And everyone could hear it. These days, Duffy still gets mad. He just hides it better, thanks to a trick he learned from James Shields. Shields is legendary for barking obscenities into his glove. Now...

Offense, Umpire Dooms Royals as They Drop Game Two, 2-1

I’m going to keep it short and sweet tonight. Poor Danny Duffy. Danny Duffy made another fabulous start tonight, but it was soiled by the offense yet again. Duffy gave us six innings of quality work as he only gave up one earned run. It was an errant throw by Duffy that gave the Tigers their second run. Nine men left on base tonight. Nine. That’s absolutely pathetic. That’s...

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...
