Royals get left-hander Danny Duffy back from disabled list

Kansas City’s injury wrecked rotation just got a little healthier, as the Royals activated left-hander Danny Duffy from the disabled list after he missed a month with biceps tendinitis.

Duffy struggled before being shut down, posting a 5.87 ERA in eight starts, but he had a 2.53 ERA in 149 innings last year in his first full season back from Tommy John elbow surgery.

Royals starters Yordano Ventura and Jason Vargas remain on the disabled list, but journeymen Chris Young and Joe Blanton have done a remarkably good job filling in.
