Youth movement in full swing for Kansas City Royals

05.18.2011     06:52 AM     View Original Blog
Texas (Ogando) -133 at Kansas City (Duffy) O/U 8

Get ready to see a lot of new faces for the Kansas City Royals. Stud first baseman Eric Hosmer was called up two weeks ago and has already made an impact with a .568 SLG and .916 OPS.  Rookie Nate Adcock has pitched out of the bullpen but is expected to start this weekend with Bruce Chen and Kyle Davies on the DL. Tonight, KC calls up another highly touted prospect as Danny Duffy is set to make his MLB debut. Duffy, a southpaw, was a third round draft pick back in 2007 and has dominated at every Minor League stop (Career - 2.59 ERA, 344 IP, 270 hits, 402 Ks, 1.10 WHIP). It will be interesting to see how he fares against the Rangers, who lead the American League in team OPS vs. lefties (.793). Texas however is 11th in road OPS (.681).


“He’s got three quality pitches,” Yost said. “He’s a little inconsistent with his breaking ball at times in the strike zone, but he’s been very effective with his fastball. He’s been keeping his fastball down. At times, he has electric stuff. He’s ready to go.”

“Duffy is the next guy in line,” general manager Dayton Moore said, “and he’s been throwing great in Triple-A. So he’ll get an opportunity. Statistically, he’s been great.

“Our scouting judgment is that, since two or three starts ago, our guys felt that if at any time we needed a starter that he was ready.”
