Royals | Danny Duffy spins another quality start

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:42:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Wednesday, July 27. He struck out five and walked two.

Fantasy Tip: For Duffy, this was his fifth quality start in six outings, though he failed to pick up his seventh win. The southpaw has allowed more than three runs just once in 11 starts and should offer enough to be owned in all formats.

Royals | Danny Duffy stifles Texas

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:47:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy allowed one run on four hits while walking two and striking out four over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Texas Rangers Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy continues to post impressive numbers, and fantasy owners should feel comfortable using him against any matchup at this point.

Royals | Danny Duffy flirts with complete game

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 18:21:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy came within one out of a complete game, allowing two runs on seven hits and striking out eight in a win over the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has now punched out at least eight in five of his last six starts to go along with a 3.11 ERA. He should be owned in just about every league, and he is worth a look in DFS formats when the matchup is right.

Royals | Danny Duffy brilliant in win vs. Cards

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 21:34:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy showed no hint of his recent control issues against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, June 27, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks while fanning eight over as many innings. Duffy had issued nine free passes over his previous three starts spanning 15 2/3 frames.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Holliday's two-run homer in the first inning accounted for all the offense St. Louis could muster. Duffy has the stuff to be an upper-tier fantasy starting pitcher, as his 10.67 K/9 ratio will attest. The 27-year-old southpaw should be in line for another fine start on the road Saturday against the anemic Philadelphia Phillies' offense.

Royals | Danny Duffy can't escape fifth

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:21:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy registered a no-decision in his start Wednesday, June 22, against the New York Mets. The left-hander went 4 2/3 innings, surrendering three runs on four hits and four walks. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Well, the strikeouts were there, as Duffy recorded eight or more K's for the third time in his past four outings, but other than that, this was a disappointing outing from the 27-year-old. Prior to this afternoon's assignment, Duffy was contributing mostly steady work, having allowed three runs or less in all but one of his seven starts, so owners will just have to hope he gets back on track his next time out. He's still someone worth owning in most leagues.

Royals | Danny Duffy posts first 10-K game

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 13:49:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy turned in his easily the best of his six starts this season against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, June 11, yielding only three singles and three walks while fanning a career-high 10 over six innings for his second win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: This outing makes up for his lone poor start on May 27 - when he allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings versus the White Sox - since joining the rotation in the middle of last month. Duffy has struck out 25 over his last three outings spanning 18 1/3 innings, boosting his K/9 rate to 10.8 - a mark that dwarfs his the 6.81 and 6.72 he posted in 2014 and 2015, respectively. He obviously deserves to remain in fantasy lineups despite a potentially difficult scheduled start Thursday at home against the Detroit Tigers.

Royals | Danny Duffy matches career high

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 19:51:02 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (calf) allowed two runs, five hits and no walks while tying a career high with nine strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a loss Monday, June 6, against the Baltimore Orioles. Duffy was also hit in the left calf by a line drive but he was able to remain in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy posted a quality start, but was unable to avoid the L. Still, this was an impressive performance and DFS players and AL-only fantasy owners might want to remember Duffy in the short term.

Royals | Danny Duffy earns first win

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:53:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, June 1. He walked none and struck out six to earn his first win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy's first win came in his fourth start of 2016, but the Royals have won all four -- the southpaw was getting stretched out in his first two starts and didn't pitch deep enough into the game to earn a "W." His ratios and strikeouts are quite good, and as long as he's in the rotation Duffy has some AL-only appeal.

Royals | Kris Medlen has rotator cuff injury

Fri, 13 May 2016 09:07:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen (shoulder) is dealing with right rotator cuff inflammation. His 15-day disabled list stint is retroactive to Wednesday, May 11. Manager Ned Yost said both Medlen and SP Chris R. Young (forearm) should be able to return when they're eligible to come off the DL. SPs Dillon Gee and Danny Duffy will serve as fill-in starters in the meantime. Gee will throw against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 14, and Duffy will go Sunday, May 15. Duffy will begin on a 50-pitch limit.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Medlen nor Young are guaranteed to return to a rotation spot when they're healthy after really struggling before their injuries. Gee and Duffy aren't long-term solutions and aren't attractive options for the spot starts despite juicy matchups against the Braves. Both Gee and Duffy are unlikely to pitch deep in their starts this weekend. Keep tabs on Kyle Zimmer and Miguel Almonte in the minors, as both young pitchers could become options for the rotation at some point this year.

Royals | Danny Duffy starting Sunday

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:13:42 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy will start against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, May 15. He will be limited to 45 to 50 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: While Duffy couldn't have drawn a more favorable opponent to make his 2016 debut start against, it'll be tough to make it through five innings to put himself into position to register a win. Plus, Duffy had an unimpressive 4.35 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 6.3 K/9 through his 24 starts last season. He is an add candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but in the majority of formats, leave Duffy to the waiver wire.
