Royals' Danny Duffy hoping for 200 innings in 2015
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy is hoping to toss 200 innings this season, according to the Kansas City Star.
In order to reach that plateau, Duffy revamped his workout routine during the offseason. "He’s in great shape," manager Ned Yost said. "He’s in, by far, the best shape I’ve ever seen him in." Duffy admitted that he's not trying to get huge, but wanted to get "filled out, and have a little more (strength) behind the ball."
Duffy, who loves to run, said he decreased the distance on his workouts, but added more explosiveness. He also bought a bike in order to strengthen his legs. His approach in the weight room also changed. "It was light, but it was a lot of reps," Duffy said. "Back when I was 22, 21, I would just try to max everything out, because I thought that was how you did things. But you need to slowly, but surely, ease into it." Duffy also cut down on eating fast food, which has been a big weakness for him in the past.
The 26-year-old posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings last year.

Report: Royals' Danny Duffy files for $3 million in arbitration

|(1/16/15) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy has filed for $3 million in arbitration, with the team offering $1.75 million, Fangraphs reports.

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy limited by rib issue
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was limited by a rib injury throughout the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.
Duffy suffered a stress fractuce in his ribcage late in the year, which prevented him from throwing more than two or three innings at a time. Duffy was a candidate to start the first game of the ALDS until the injury cropped up. Duffy was excellent down the stretch for Kansas City. He posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings.
Report: Mechanics cost Royals P Danny Duffy playoff starts
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/11/14) A mechanical breakdown that prevented Royals left-hander Danny Duffy from throwing strikes out of the windup motivated Ned Yost to keep him in the bullpen for the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.
Duffy struggled at times in August and September. He was particularly ineffective in his last start of the regular season, giving up four runs on five hits in just two innings against the White Sox.
|2014 summary: In his first full season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2012, Danny Duffy was surprisingly effective over 25 starts and six relief appearances for the Royals. While his control was still below-average, Duffy cut back on walks dramatically, issuing 3.2 free passes per nine innings after walking a batter more than every other inning prior to last season. The southpaw's 2.53 ERA was aided by extremely favorable BABIP (.243) and strand rates (81 percent), but Duffy helped himself by getting popups on 13 percent of hit balls.
Playing time status: Duffy missed time at the end of the 2014 season with a shoulder injury, and he was used sparingly in the postseason, reportedly due to mechanical issues. He should be in the Royals' rotation coming out of spring training, but Duffy should be considered at least a minor injury risk.
2015 outlook: Duffy appears to be due for some regression, but he should generally be safe to start at home; he has allowed just 12 home runs in 147 career innings at Kauffman Stadium. Though he is more of a streaming option in standard mixed leagues, Duffy is a must-own in deeper formats.
