Royals | Two spots in KC rotation up for grabs

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 08:10:39 -0800

Kansas City Royals SPs Kris Medlen, Chris R. Young, Danny Duffy and Dillon Gee are expected to compete for the final two spots in the starting rotation during spring training, according to manager Ned Yost and pitching coach Dave Eiland.

Fantasy Tip: Yost hinted that SPs Ian Kennedy, Yordano Ventura and Edinson Volquez would likely be the first three starters in the rotation, although he is hesitant to name an Opening Day starter. Owners in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues should keep tabs on this competition throughout spring training and the winners are worthy of consideration as late-round fliers in this year's fantasy drafts.

Royals | Danny Duffy signs one-year contract

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 12:01:08 -0800

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy avoided arbitration and signed a one-year, $4.225 million deal, which is nearly a $2 million raise.

Fantasy Tip: It's a well-deserved raise for Duffy, who has been mostly successful since going through Tommy John surgery earlier in his career. While he regressed a bit last year after posting a 2.53 ERA and .209 opposing batting average in 2014, the 27-year-old southpaw still has some promise and could be a nice sleeper as long as he has a rotation spot nailed down.

Royals | Danny Duffy headed to the bullpen

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 12:54:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy will pitch out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season and will compete for a spot on the playoff roster.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) isn't worth a roster spot outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed formats, and even in those deep formats, it isn't likely he produces any significant fantasy returns. Jeremy Guthrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is entering the rotation, and he sports a 5.65 ERA through 23 starts this season. You'll want to avoid Guthrie in all formats, as at best, he is a desperation start in an A+ matchup.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche not starting Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:29:29 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Kansas City Royals. 1B Jose Abreu is batting third in the lineup against Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) only has a .250 mark against Duffy, making him a likely candidate to shut down in this lefty vs. lefty matchup. Abreu ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is not a bad option against Duffy at all, with a .333 career mark.

Royals | Danny Duffy stays hot

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 17:52:47 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy allowed one run on six hits over eight innings in a win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, July 19, and he has a 1.33 ERA in three starts in July.

Fantasy Tip: There is no reason to expect Duffy ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) to maintain this pace, but he is pitching well enough right now to consider using as a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore in his next start Friday, July 24, against the Houston Astros.

Royals | Danny Duffy returning Wednesday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:36:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (biceps) will return from the disabled list Wednesday, June 24, to face the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has lights-out stuff when he's right, but we'd lean towards giving him a start before using him on FantasyScore.

Royals | Danny Duffy to make rehab start

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 18:01:22 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (biceps) will throw 65 pitches in a minor-league rehab start with Class AAA Omaha Wednesday, June 17. His start was rained out Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is likely to return before the end of the month, but FantasyScore players will want to see him officially return and pitch without any lingering effects of the injury before trusting him again.

Royals | Danny Duffy gradually progressing

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 16:03:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (biceps) had a schedule mapped out by manager Ned Yost to have him throw 100 pitches during his fourth rehab start Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) struggled through his first eight starts this season, and he'll be a risky option in all formats unless he morphs back to the lucky pitcher who posted a 2.53 ERA with a 3.83 FIP through 31 starts last season. Duffy is only worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, and until he proves himself on the hill, there is no reason to start him in FantasyScore contests.

Royals | Danny Duffy decent in rehab

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:28:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (biceps) allowed one earned run, two hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a minor-league rehab appearances with Triple-A Omaha Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 17 due to left biceps tendinitis. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a start or two.
