The Kansas City Royals have chosen to part ways with Danny Duffy in a deal that sends the pitcher to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
When a contender came calling for Danny Duffy, the Kansas City Royals were willing to listen. Among the various other moves that the Los Angeles Dodgers have made prior to the 2021 trade deadline, the Dodgers also made the move to acquire the 32-year-old pitcher from the Royals.
Duffy will now go from one of the worst teams in all of Major League Baseball to a title contender that is apparently looking for experienced and talented pitchers to help it reach and win another World Series.
But, while we know where Duffy is headed, it’s not totally clear just yet as to who will be coming over from the Dodgers’ organization to Kansas City.
The Kansas City Royals have decided to send Duffy and some cash over to the Dodgers for a player to be named later, according to The Athletics’s Alec Lewis:
So, Duffy’s trade counterpart hasn’t been unveiled yet, which isn’t really all that shocking when you consider that the Dodgers are working on a possible monumental sort of trade with the Washington Nationals.
Kansas City Royals: Los Angeles Dodgers land Danny Duffy in a trade
Duffy is a guy that Royals fans should be sad to see go. He’s been with the Royals’ organization since he was drafted all the way back in 2007 with the 96th overall pick. In 2011, he made his debut with the Royals and has been a solid contributor for Kansas City throughout the bulk of his career.
And though he was far from perfect in 2015, he was a solid part helping get the Royals to the World Series. Now, the left handed pitcher will have another opportunity to go get a World Series Ring with the Dodgers.
And now we wait to find out who the Kansas City Royals will get in the deal.
