Danny Duffy to make MLB debut
Olney: Royals Go Back to Well
Royals pitching prospect Danny Duffy got the call to the bigs. But first, his coaches at Triple-A had some fun at his expense in telling him the news, Buster Olney writes. Blog
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Royals plan to bring up Danny Duffy to start against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night in his major league debut.
Duffy, a 22-year-old left-hander, is 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA in seven starts and 36 innings at Triple-A Omaha. He is among many highly rated prospects the Royals have been bringing along in a minor league system rated among the best in baseball.
The Royals will select his contract from the Triple-A Storm Chasers.
On Monday night, following a 19-1 loss to Cleveland, the Royals announced that right-hander Vin Mazzaro was being optioned to Omaha and left-hander Everett Teaford was being recalled.
