Royals Injury Update: Danny Duffy exits with shoulder soreness

By on 9/06/2014 04:51:00 PM

Danny Duffy of the Royals left Saturday’s game against the Yankees due to shoulder soreness, according to Andy McCullough of the Star Ledger. He threw one pitch and was removed.

Duffy, 25, has had a breakout season and it would be a disaster if he had to have surgery on his shoulder. He has been a key factor in the Royals success and would be a shame for his name to be added to the list of those who needed Tommy John this season.

This season, Duffy has a 2.42 ERA in 141.1 innings pitched while striking out 108 and walking 50. He has a WAR of 3.4. He has been dealing with arm issues for the last few years.

In 2013 and 2012 he combined to pitch 52 innings and had an ERA over 2.00. In 2011, he pitched 105.1 innings while having an abysmal ERA of 5.34 while striking out 87 and walking 51.
When more information comes out, we will update you. For now, we know it’s throwing shoulder and didn’t complete a batter today against the Yankees. Kansas City is in first place in the AL Central.
