Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (shoulder) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his shoulder injury.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see how long Duffy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) will be out of the rotation. Jason Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) will be activated from the disabled list and likely will take Duffy's spot in the rotation. Vargas is scheduled to pitch against the New York Yankees and may be a risky option on FantasyScore.

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy's (shoulder) spot in the rotation will be skipped because of shoulder stiffness. He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday, May 26. SP Edinson Volquez is now scheduled to start Saturday, May 23, while SP Yordano Ventura will start Sunday, May 24.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for any updates on Duffy's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) status over the next few days. Volquez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) are both scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals this weekend and could be risky option on FantasyScore against a solid offense.

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy will remain in the rotation for the time being, but manager Ned Yost said the team needs to see some improvement from Duffy in future starts.
Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has a 2-3 record and 5.87 ERA, but he also has a minor league option remaining. When Jason Vargas comes off the disabled list, Duffy could be odd man out. Keep an eye on Duffy's matchups and start him accordingly, but be prepared to remove him should no improvement take place.
