Danny Duffy filling in for Kris Medlen on Sunday for Royals

Kansas City Royals pitcher Danny Duffy will start Sunday against the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

He's filling in for Kris Medlen, who was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his right rotator cuff. Duffy hasn't made a start since September 16, so he'll be limited to roughly 50 pitches. It's going to be a bullpen game for the Royals.

Duffy has thrown 18 innings this season -- all in relief -- and owns a 3.15 xFIP. His current 28.4 strikeout percentage is well above his career average of 19.0 percent. Our models currently project Duffy to record a 4.26 ERA and 17.4 strikeout percentage over the remaining course of the season.
