    Royals Royals call up another prospect, Danny Duffy

    The Royals called up left-handed starter Danny Duffy who Baseball America ranks as the #66 prospect in all of baseball. Duffy is also ranked as their 4th best prospect Scary thought on just how talented this Royals team can be in a couple of years. Here's a little blurb I found about Duffy:

    Notes: As a member of the Royals, Zack Greinke had a well-publicized internal battle within himself over his desire to play professional baseball, which was similar to what Duffy faced in 2010, temporarily walking away from the game in spring training. The lefty eventually found his way back and played at four levels in 2010, reaching double-A. At the highest level, he posted a 2.80 FIP in 39.2 innings while showing good control (2.04 BB/9). Duffy also posted a solid strikeout rate (9.30 K/9). He has a four-pitch repertoire that includes a 90-95 mph fastball, a changeup, curveball and slider. The lefty has a clean delivery and little effort. At worst, he should develop into a No. 3 starter, and should return to double-A to begin the 2011 season.
    I don't think anyone is going to miss Vin Mazzaro after seeing this kid pitch

    I just hope that if he has a bad outing his manager doesn't leave him out there to die.

    Well since he will be starting games and not coming in long relief to eat innings, I don't see it being a problem. I cannot believe all the crying over Yost leaving in Mazzaro to take one for the team. It happens!

    Duffy got torched tonight by the Red Sox and is now the owner of a 5.17 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP in his first 12 starts. Not exactly what I was expecting from Duffy.

    Manager must have left him out to die too long.
