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.

Danny Duffy acquired by the Dodgers

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired Kansas City Royals pitcher Danny Duffy for a player to be named later.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy is currently on the 10-day injured list with a flexor strain but is expected to return soon. He has a no-trade clause that he's expected to wave. Duffy owns a 2.51 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts across 61 innings in 2021. When activated, it's unclear if Duffy will be used as a traditional starter or in a hybrid role, making him more of an option in deep-league formats.

Danny Duffy (flexor strain) lands on the 10-day IL

The Kansas City Royals placed pitcher Danny Duffy on the 10-day injured list with a left flexor strain.

Fantasy Impact

The Royals took a hit in the starting rotation on Tuesday, with both Danny Duffy and Brady Singer landing on the 10-day injured list. This is the second time this season Duffy has been sidelined with a flexor strain. The move is retroactive to July 17. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Duffy until an official timeline is announced. Infielder Ryan Broom was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.

Danny Duffy allows one in Friday's no-decision

Danny Duffy allowed one run on two hits and a walk in four innings pitched during the Royals' win over Baltimore Friday evening. The left-hander struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy has pitched well since returning from a left forearm flexor strain that sent him to the IL a month ago. Unfortunately, his night ended an inning away from being eligible for the win. The left-hander will take his 4-3 record and 2.51 ERA into next week's start, which is currently scheduled against Detroit.

Danny Duffy will start Friday vs. the Orioles

Kansas City Royals pitcher Danny Duffy will start Friday’s game against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

Duffy allowed one run on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts across five innings in his previous start. The southpaw owns a 2.53 ERA and a 3.46 FIP across 57 innings in 2021. Duffy is a solid DFS option for Friday’s main slate as he gets a favorable matchup against the Orioles, but the 32-year-old has thrown at least five innings just once since May 12.
