Royals activate SP Danny Duffy from disabled list Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/24/15) The Royals have reinstated left-hander Danny Duffy from the 15-day disabled list, the team announced on Wednesday. Duffy will start Wednesday night's game against the Mariners.
Duffy hasn't pitched since May 16 due to shoulder stiffness and biceps tendinitis. In eight starts this year, Duffy is 2-3 with a gaudy 5.87 ERA through 38 1/3 innings.
To clear room on the roster, reliever Michael Mariot was demoted to Triple-A on Thursday
Danny Duffy expected to return to Royals on Wednesday

|(6/20/15) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy is expected to return to the team and start on Wednesday.
Duffy is is on the disabled list with shoulder stiffness and biceps tendinitis. He was originally supposed to make one more rehab start early next week, but he'll be activated and start for the Royals instead, the Kansas City Star reported.
Royals SP Danny Duffy finding comfort level with new delivery
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/19/15) Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy (shoulder) will make his next rehab start Monday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, where he is expected to throw 80-85 pitches, per Fox Sports.
Duffy, who is on the disabled list with shoulder stiffness and biceps tendinitis, said he doesn't "really feel anything wrong anymore." He just needs to build up his pitch count before coming off the DL.
"Seems like it's been 10 years," Duffy said. "I'll do what I got to do and continue to build that pitch count up. Whenever the boys need me to fill in, I'll fill in. Whatever that void is."
While Duffy has been on the DL, he has tweaked his delivery. He now guides his hands above his head, which gives him better control of his pitches.
"The new tweak in the delivery feels really comfy now," Duffy said. "It's been three rehab starts and a couple sides I've used it. It's much more flowy, so I'm definitely excited about seeing how it's going to play."
Duffy is expected to make at least one more rehab start after Monday, with the goal of getting to around 100 pitches. He is on track to return in early July.
Royals SP Danny Duffy strikes out six in rehab start
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/17/15) Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy threw 65 pitches in his second rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, 610Sports.com reports.
Duffy, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, threw 3 2/3 innings, allowed three hits and one earned run. His command was crisp as he managed to strike out six batters during the start. He allowed a solo home run to Cubs OF Junior Lake, who was recently sent down to Triple-A.
Duffy (2-3) has a 5.87 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings this season.
|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.
