Jason Vargas activated from disabled list, to start for KC

NEW YORK (AP) Jason Vargas is being activated from the 15-day disabled list and is going to start for the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night against the New York Yankees. The left-hander hasn't pitched since May 5 because of a flexor muscle strain. He will fill the rotation spot of Danny Duffy, who was placed on the DL Monday with biceps tendinitis. Left-hander Brandon Finnegan...

Bronx Bombarded: Royals Slammed by Yankees, 14-1

When your starting pitcher gives up more home runs than he gets outs, you know you’re in for a long day. Jeremy Guthrie gave up three 3-run homers and a 2-run home run before recording an out in the second inning. The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just...

Royals to start Jason Vargas on Tuesday

Let’s Calm Down About Danny Duffy For Right Now

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy had a decent enough April to where there wasn’t a ton of concern about his start to the season.  He wasn’t great but he wasn’t a disaster.  As I recently wrote, he certainly wasn’t the biggest cause for concern in the Royals starting rotation.  Since the calendar turned […]

The Trials Of Danny Duffy: Can Royals’ Starter Be Fixed?

Hard to believe, but tonight’s game will mark the quarter-point of the season. Forty games in, we can start to make some judgments about this Royals team.  The defense appears to be excellent again, the offense is better than expected, I think the bullpen is even better than expected (which is impressive, given the lofty […]

Offense Falls Silent as Royals Drop Game Two

“It could have been a lot worse.” -A tragic tale of Danny Duffy’s 2015 season.   After scoring twelve runs in yesterday’s match, Kansas City backed Danny Duffy up with only one run of support. One run of support is hard to work with for any pitcher, but as rough of a start to the season that he’s had, you can almost guarantee that one run wouldn’t cut it. In...

Yankees game 38 preview (5/16/15)

CC Sabathia (1-5, 5.20 ERA) looks to make it back to back wins against Danny Duffy (2-2, 5.67 ERA) and the Royals. Sabathia earned his first win of the season after waiting more than a year. He allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits through seven innings against the Rays striking out nine. In 45 innings this year he has K-ed 38 and walked just 10. The Royals haven’t...

Duffy to dig deep as he searches for return to win column in start against Yankees

After failing to get out of the fourth inning in consecutive losses, Danny Duffy said he worked on a new adjustment this week. Perhaps facing the scuffling New York Yankees will help him end his woes. The Kansas City Royals starter will try to extend the Yankees' losing streak to five games Saturday night when he matches up with fellow struggling left-hander CC Sabathia. Duffy (2...

Gordon is the Late Inning Hero as Royals Take Game Two From Rangers, 7-6

After another undesirable start from Danny Duffy last night, Kansas City would need Edinson Volquez to battle through at least five innings. Volquez did so after coming out of his prior start prematurely, and gave his team five decent innings en route to an extra innings victory over the Texas Rangers.   Edinson Volquez didn’t get off to a great start. After a leadoff...

The story behind the 8-1 loss

Monday morning at 5:45 am the Kansas City Royals finally got to their hotel rooms in Arlington.  After a 100 minute plus rain delay in Detroit followed by two 30+ pitch innings the night before, it is safe to say the boys in blue were not exactly in tip-top shape for the game that started nearly just a few hours later.  Coach Ned Yost told reporters that he got to bed at 7...

Another clunker for Duffy, weary Royals lose 8-2 at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Kansas City starter Danny Duffy had another clunker, and without the excuse all of his weary teammates had for their underwhelming performance. Duffy traveled ahead of the team before his start in Texas, where the rest of the Royals didn't arrive until 5:45 a.m. Monday before the 8-2 series-opening loss to the Rangers later that night. Five days after not making...

Ventura Needed A Good Game…and Had it…Kinda

Danny Duffy and Edinson Volquez have been the Royals best pitchers in 2015, but the young Yordano Ventura is still the best of the bunch. Nicknamed Ace, he is just that for the Royals, regardless if he is a real “ace.” The Royals needed him to be an ace tonight, and after a rough start, he pulled through. Yes, he gave up four runs in six innings, so he didn’t even qualify for...

A Look at the Royals Pitching Options

We have officially entered the part of baseball season where everything starts to slow down. With 27 games in the book, sample sizes are starting to become a better picture of what a player is, and isnt. It is still small, far too small to judge a players true value but enough to notice a trend. The Royals are currently sitting 17-10 and are in first place in the AL Central...

Carlos Carrasco received some of that elusive run support that has haunted the Indians for the past two seasons as Cleveland defeated a left-handed starter in a 10-3 final over the Kansas City Royals from Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday night. The Indians paced Carrasco with four early runs, which would prove to be all the reliable righty would need...

Alfredo Simon is off to the best start for a Detroit Tigers pitcher in 27 years and he's making it look easy.
