Royals name Danny Duffy Opening Day starter
According to The Athletic's Rustin Dodd, Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost has named Danny Duffy as the team's Opening Day starter.
Duffy was the obvious choice here. The 29-year-old southpaw is 21-13 with a 3.64 ERA over the last two seasons. Ian Kennedy is expected to start the team's second game against the Chicago White Sox.
numberFire's models project Duffy for a 9-11 record, 4.00 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 2018.
