by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

"I changed up my delivery a little bit to stay over the rubber a little bit more," Duffy said, per MLB.com. "Going to use my hands over my head a little bit more. It was a tweak to help me throw more strikes. Anything you can do to stay fluid through the delivery, you do it.

Duffy's move was retroactive to May 17, meaning he can come off the disabled list on June 1.

He isn't surprised by the move after having a cortisone shot in his shoulder on Friday, MLB.com reports.

Three-run homer dooms Royals starter Danny Duffy on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Royals starter Danny Duffy (2-3) gave up four runs on four hits in five innings Saturday to take the loss against the Yankees.

The big blow off Duffy was a three-run homer from Chase Headley in the fifth inning.

"I know my teammates believe in me. I believe in me. The coaching staff believes in me," Duffy said. "I know I'm better than these results."

Duffy, who dropped his third straight start, walked four and struck out three in the defeat.

"You have to take positives with everything," Duffy said to MLB.com. "I had one bad inning. After that we kind of locked it in. I had a battle with Headley. Count's even, count's full, I'm thinking maybe he thinks fastball is coming. If I execute that pitch, maybe he rolls it over."

Duffy returns to the mound for his next start Saturday, May 23, against the Cardinals.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) Royals starter Danny Duffy (2-2) was roughed up for six runs on five hits in just 3 2/3 innings to suffer the loss to the Rangers on Monday.

"A lot of throwing," manager Ned Yost said after the game, per MLB.com. "Not much pitching. He's gotten back, especially the last two games, to just raring back and firing. And it's really affecting his command of all three pitches. I don't think he threw a curveball or changeup for a strike until the third inning."

Duffy was touched for four runs in the second inning and surrendered a two-run home run to Adrian Beltre in the fourth. He walked six in the defeat.

"I just couldn't locate anything today. ... Nobody feels worse than me. I cost my team a few games," Duffy said.

Duffy struggled in his last start as well, giving up four earned runs on six hits in one inning of work.

"There's going to be stretches in your career, I've heard it from a bazillion people, that you just don't have your best every time you go out there," Duffy said.

Duffy's next start is set for Saturday against the Yankees.

Royals' Duffy has good numbers vs. Tigers despite one win in nine starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy will be on the hill Thursday against the Tigers for his fifth start this season. The Tigers have one of the best lineups in baseball, but the left-hander doesn't seem intimidated when he faces Detroit.

Duffy has held the current Tigers roster to a .203 batting average (16 for 79), according to baseballsavant.com.

While Duffy did lose all three of his starts to the Tigers in 2014, he pitched pretty well, posting a 2.12 ERA and 0.89 WHIP. He just received little run support. The Royals totaled four runs in Duffy's three starts against Detroit.

Duffy will be back on the mound Wednesday at Cleveland.
