Fantasy Baseball: SP Danny Duffy Worth Keeping In Dynasty Leagues
Duffy has been recovering from Tommy John surgery for the majority of the year, and due to the injury, he has fallen out of grace with several fantasy owners. However, the big left-hander has since returned to action and has actually pitched very well over the last couple weeks.
Since coming back, Duffy has a 2-0 record to go along with a sizzling 1.35 ERA. He has fit back into the rotation perfectly and could be the guy to give a team a spark down the stretch this year. Duffy seems primed to have several more quality starts in the finals weeks of the season and should continue to show the fantasy world how healthy he is.
Duffy is a big southpaw at six-foot, 200 pounds and he really launches himself off the rubber. He is topping out at around 98 MPH, but his fastball regularly sits around 92-94 MPH on the radar gun. He gets amazing movement on his pitches and his fastball shockingly drops right out of the strike zone. Duffman has been pitching more accurately and throwing harder than before his injury, but that seems to have become the norm for hurlers post-TJS.
The 24-year-old is one hurler to lock up in dynasty leagues before the 2013 season is officially in the books. He will be a worthy fourth starter next season and will certainly come cheaper now than if you waited until next spring.
