Royals pitcher Danny Duffy posts uneasy start Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy gave up four runs in five innings of work with seven strikeouts against the Diamondbacks Saturday. Duffy was dominant early on, striking out six in three scoreless innings. Duffy likes his progression through spring training, reports MLB.com.

"I feel like it's building perfectly," he said. "The ball has been popping for me. I feel the best I have in years [springs]. I got a little fastball happy [today]. I tried to double-up with fastballs to Pollock and Goldschmidt and it hurt me. You get happy you throw one by them, and then the next thing you leave one over the plate."

Manager Ned Yost was so-so about the outing.

"He was OK," Yost said. "He had a very good first three innings and then just started getting the ball up a little. The slider he threw to Pollock for the homer wasn't a real sharp slider."


Royals name Yordano Ventura Opening Day starter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) The Royals have named pitcher Yordano Ventura the starter for Opening Day, the Kansas City Star reports.

Ventura gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA and 159:69 K:BB ratio in 183 innings last season in his first full year with the team. He capped the year with an uneven postseason but finished strong, allowing just two earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over two World Series starts. Manager Ned Yost said Wednesday that Ventura's performance in Game 6 of the World Series solidified his confidence in handing the young pitcher the Opening Day assignment.

Yost also said that Ventura will be followed by Danny Duffy, Edinson Volquez, Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation.


Royals pitcher Danny Duffy posts strong start Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy went four innings Tuesday, allowing just three hits and one earned run against the Cubs. 

Duffy, who struck out five, was happy with his outing.

"I liked how I did out there," Duffy said. "There were a couple of instances in the third inning when I started nibbling. With two outs, you got to bear down. I know that better than anyone else with all the two-out walks I've had in my career."


Perfect start to spring for Royals' Danny Duffy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Danny Duffy threw two perfect innings in his spring debut for the Royals. 

Duffy threw 20 pitches for 13 strikes, retiring all six Reds' batters he faced, hitting 92 MPH on the radar gun. 


Royals' Danny Duffy hoping for 200 innings in 2015


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) 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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Danny Duffy's side session goes well


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy, who played catch Friday and Saturday, continued his recovery from left shoulder inflammation with a side session Sunday, and according to MLB.com, it went well.

He's looking more likely to return to the rotation later this week, perhaps as early Tuesday against the White Sox.

"We'll come in and see if he feels good," manager Ned Yost said. "He's been playing catch the last couple of days, threw a 20-pitch side today, and if he has no issues, then we'll make a determination. But when he threw, he had no stiffness, no pain, felt good. So if he comes back and feels good tomorrow, then we'll make up our mind what we want to do."
