Danny Duffy’s final pitch count would be…. One. After throwing the first pitch, Duffy shook his arm rather awkwardly, and third baseman Mike Moustakas motioned for Ned Yost and Nick Kenny to come have a look at the Royals young lefty. Duffy left the game, and they determined in the second inning that it was because of left shoulder soreness. I don’t mean to alarm anybody, but…...
