Dodgers are reportedly acquiring Danny Duffy from the Kansas City Royals.
Royals general manager Dayton Moore said earlier this week that his injury will have him return within 3-to-4 weeks, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Duffy went down July 20 with a flexor strain in his left forearm, but Moore's comments Tuesday suggest the lefty will be back on the mound within a month. Duffy has been the Royals best starting pitcher in 2021, posting a 2.51 ERA and 65:22 K:BB in 61 innings across 13 outings. More details about his recovery and a specific return timeframe should become available very soon as this trade gets finalized.
