Danny Duffy signs minor-league deal with Rangers

The Texas Rangers have signed pitcher Danny Duffy to a minor-league deal.

Fantasy Impact

The pact comes with an invite to major league spring training. The long-time Kansas City Royals lefty was traded to the Dodgers at the 2021 trade deadline, but a forearm issue not only caused him to miss the remainder of the 2021 season but the entirety of the 2022 campaign as well. When healthy, the 34-year-old has been productive with a career 3.95 ERA across 234 appearances and 204 starts. Given his 2.51 ERA and 25.8% K% prior to his 2021 trade, Duffy makes sense as a low-risk addition for the Rangers.

Danny Duffy's 2023 club option decline by Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have declined their 2023 club option on Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy would have been slated to make $7 million on his option. The move is understandable as Duffy's time in Los Angeles was spent dealing with injuries that prevented him from ever pitching for the Dodgers. Duffy will now be a free agent.

Danny Duffy agrees to one-year deal with Dodgers

Danny Duffy and the Dodgers have agreed to a one-year deal with a club option for 2023.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy managed to avoid a second Tommy John surgery last year, but did have surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his left arm. He is targeting a return in June and the plan is for him to pitch out of the bullpen. Duffy was surprisingly good in 2021 with a 2.51 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, but to expect him to have a fantasy impact at his age, with his injury, in his role, and given his timeline, would be foolhardy. Wish him well, but not on your fantasy team.

Danny Duffy drawing interest from several teams

Danny Duffy is drawing interest from several teams after offseason surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy struggled with a flexor tendon issue that required him to undergo surgery in the October. He will be ready to pitch in games in June. Last season, Duffy was traded from the Royals to Dodgers at the trade deadline but never pitched for Los Angeles. Health is a big concern for the lefty who has a 4.03 ERA in 248 innings over the last three seasons.

Danny Duffy (forearm) throws bullpen on Sunday

Dodgers' SP Danny Duffy threw a bullpen session at Oracle Park on Sunday afternoon, Jorge Castillo of the LA Times reports.

Fantasy Impact

The last that we heard about Duffy's return to action, Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts said that Duffy was on track to begin rehabbing his forearm injury in mid-September. If Sunday's bullpen work is any indication, it looks like the lefty is on track with his manager's projection. The situation is worth monitoring, but it is unlikely that Duffy will make an impact in many fantasy managers' playoff chances.
