Duffy goes the distance -- sorta -- but can't quite get it done for Royals

Danny Duffy was decent. Dallas Keuchel was superb. In a battle of left-handers, Houston's Keuchel bested Kansas City's Duffy as the Royals lost, 4-0, to the Astros on Tuesday night. Keuchel spun eight innings of shutout ball to silence Kansas City. Duffy, meanwhile, delivered his second-longest start of the season by going 6 2/3 innings, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks...

Duffy Returns; Offense Leads the Way in 8-2 Series Win

Wednesday night marked the return of Danny Duffy, who was activating from the disabled list before the contest. He was sharp early, but was on a limited pitch count so only managed to go four and two-thirds innings while striking out four and issuing one earned run. Part of the reason Duffy has had struggles in the past was in the control department, so it was positive to see him...

Kansas City Royals: The importance of Danny Duffy

Royals and starting pitcher Danny Duffy agree to a 1-year deal ( The Kansas City Royals made the playoffs last year for the first time since the 1985 season and much of that success can be contributed to their strong bullpen as well as the pitching staff in general.

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...

Intensity of 'pen work suits Duffy well, but he could make timely switch to rotation, too

Left-hander Danny Duffy has been better than perhaps anyone imagined in his new and brief career as a reliever. In three appearances, Duffy has worked at least two innings each time out, given up just three hits and no runs, and has struck out nine hitters. And the biggest fear -- his tendency to be wild -- has been a nonfactor. Duffy has walked just two batters. The intensity level...
