Royals shut down Danny Duffy with shoulder injury

Leave a comment

Initially the Royals planned to merely push back Danny Duffy’s next start a few days because of shoulder soreness, but as so often happens in cases like this the left-hander is now headed to the disabled list with inflammation.

Left-hander Jason Vargas, who’s coming back from a disabled list stint of his own for an elbow injury, will start in Duffy’s place and the Royals have also called up left-hander Brandon Finnegan from the minors.

Duffy’s history of arm problems likely played a part in the Royals ultimately deciding to use some extra caution. He’s also struggled of late after getting off to a good start this season, allowing 14 runs in 10 innings this month while walking more batters (10) than he struck out (7).

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
