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.
