The Kansas City Royals have put the final touches on their starting rotation.
This has been an interesting spring for the Kansas City Royals.
After missing much of the year recovering from Tommy John surgery, it appears that Danny Duffy is ready to claim a spot in the Kansas City Royals’ rotation for the rest of this season and possibly next season as well.
The Kansas City Royals were poised to make it “Our Time” in 2012 before star pitcher Danny Duffy found his way to Tommy John surgery.
When the Royals made a splash this off-season by acquiring James Shields and Wade Davis from the Tampa Bay Rays, they figured they were getting two above average Major League pitchers that would solidify their rotation right away.
The second half of the season should offer up many story lines for the Royals.
Danny Duffy will begin his Major League rehab assignment with the Naturals on Sunday against the San Antonio Missions.
The addition of James Shields gave them a legitimate ace pitcher at the front of their rotation. The rebuilt rotation looks stronger but leaves the question open: Who’s number two?
As we sit at the All-Star Break, we take some time to reflect on the Kansas City Royals performance by position in the first half of the season.
The Royals have lost some key players to injuries, but their replacements are playing well.
