Royals’ Danny Duffy out 6-8 weeks with oblique strain

Royals’ Danny Duffy out 6-8 weeks with oblique strain

The lefty will miss about two months, lessening the Royals’ chances of getting back into the race in the AL Central. Royals lefty Danny Duffy will be sidelined 6-8 weeks with a Grade 1 oblique strain, according to MLB.com’s Jeffrey Flanagan. Kansas City will replace lefty Eric Skoglund in his place. Duffy, 28, has pitched well for Kansas City this year, posting a 3.54 ERA and 1.8-WAR in 68.2 innings over 11 starts.

AL Central Notes: Jason Vargas drawing interest, Ian Kinsler injury

Here’s the latest from around the American League Central. Royals lefty Jason Vargas is drawing a notable amount of interest and could be traded in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.

Vargas is making $8 million this season, which could be considered comparably inexpensive given his production. Here’s the latest from...

Yankees lineup is dangerous and showing signs of greatness

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jason Vargas is 6 feet tall, he weighs 215 pounds, and he throws left-handed. Those are just about the same dimensions as Sandy Koufax, if you add five pounds and subtract two inches. And that, generally, is the last paragraph Jason Vargas and Sandy Koufax should ever share. Except: Vargas had...

Pineda has already matched last season’s bWAR total in 134.1 fewer innings, and his 3.27 ERA is nearly a run and a half lower than the 4.60 mark he posted between 2015 and 2016. He’s in […] The post Game 37: Battle of the Aces appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
