RP - MIN
As the Twins dominated the Royals Tuesday afternoon, Tyler Duffey entered the game in the sixth inning after a Mike Moustakas single knocked Hector Santiago out of the game. Duffey proceeded to record three straight outs in his one inning of work.
Duffey doesn't feature overpowering stuff as a reliever. However, he could see an elevated role in the Twins bullpen if his stuff plays up in shorter outings. After a disappointing 2016, Duffey could find his niche in relief for Minnesota and is worth loosely monitoring if he begins working later in games.

Twins SP Tyler Duffey continued his maddeningly inconsistent ways on Wednesday, allowing eight hits and five runs over just 1 1/3 innings. Duffey walked one and allowed a two-run home run to Jeff Francouer, and his amount of strikeouts really doesn't matter (it was zero.)
