Dodgers reinforce rotation with left-hander Danny Duffy, star of the Kansas City Royals

Dodgers reinforce rotation with left-hander Danny Duffy, star of the Kansas City Royals

The Los Angeles Dodgers got a way in exchange from the Kansas City Royals to left-handed pitcher Danny Duffy, this to reinforce their rotation in this 2021 Major League Baseball (MLB) season.

According to a report by Jeff Passan, the Dodgers completed the trade they sent from the Royals to left-handed starter Danny Duffy, who has been a star starter in that organization for years and comes to reinforce a rotation that has suffered considerably in MLB 2021.

While Duffy is currently on the disabled list with a flexor strain, the Dodgers relied on him because he is missing a starter due to the losses of Clayton Kershaw and the controversial Trevor Bauer.

However, his return will be sooner than that of other arms in his rotation and his experience will be quite useful for a team that will seek to repeat what it did last season, win the Major League Baseball World Series.

Following this change, the Dodgers players who go to the Royals will later be named by Danny Duffy, including an amount of money to cover some or perhaps all of the left-handed pitcher’s remaining salary, sources reported.

In MLB 2021, left-hander Danny Duffy is 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA, 65 strikeouts and 22 walks in 12 starts with the Royals. (Fielding)
