  • Royals' Tyler Duffey: Promotion official

    The Royals selected Duffey's contract from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

    Kansas City had a spot on its 40-man roster open for Duffey after Jordan Lyles (personal) was placed on the inactive list over the weekend. Duffey, who made just one appearance at the big-league level in 2023 as a member of the Cubs, posted a 3.24 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 8.1 innings across six relief appearances for Omaha this season.

  • Royals' Tyler Duffey: Set to join big-league bullpen

    The Royals are expected to call up Duffey from Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Duffey will move up to the majors after compiling a 3.24 ERA and 10:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings with Omaha this season. The 33-year-old made just one appearance in the majors in 2023 and wasn't great with the Twins in 2022, but Duffey holds a career 3.99 ERA and 301:85 K:BB across 284 innings as a reliever at the big-league level.

  • Royals' Tyler Duffey: Resumes pitching at Triple-A

    Duffey (back) has made two appearances out of Triple-A Omaha's bullpen so far this season, striking out four batters over three innings while allowing one earned run on one hit and two walks.

    Duffey didn't pitch at all for the Royals during the Cactus League after Feb. 26 upon requiring surgery to remove a cancerous mole from his back. The medical issue derailed any hopes Duffey had of making the Royals' Opening Day bullpen, but fortunately, the 33-year-old has been able to resume his playing career in the minors after a relatively brief delay. He'll look to stack together more quality relief appearances at Triple-A with the hope of eventually receiving a call-up to Kansas City.

  • Royals' Tyler Duffey: Sidelined after skin cancer procedure

    Duffey has been sidelined since Feb. 26 after having surgery to remove a cancerous mole from his back, reports. He started light baseball activity Wednesday.

    A suspicious mole on Duffey's back was diagnosed as melanoma during an exam early in spring training. Duffey hopes to pitch in games by the end of spring training, but it appears likely he'll begin the season on the injured list. He signed a minor-league deal with the Royals and is attempting to win a spot in the major-league bullpen this spring.

  • Royals' Tyler Duffey: Heads to Royals on MiLB deal

    Duffey signed a minor-league contract Thursday with the Royals.

    Duffey made only one MLB appearance with the Cubs in 2023 and held a 3.77 ERA and 53:23 K:BB in 45.1 innings with their Triple-A affiliate in Iowa. The 32-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.57 ERA in the big leagues.

  • Cubs' Tyler Duffey: Joins big-league club

    The Cubs selected Duffey's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The right-hander was cut loose by the Cubs in early June but re-signed on a minor-league deal a couple weeks later. Duffey posted a 4.91 ERA in 40 outings with Minnesota last year and had a 3.77 ERA over 45.1 innings at Triple-A this season.

  • Cubs' Tyler Duffey: Hits open market

    Duffey has exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Cubs and will need to either be released or added to Chicago's 26-man active roster in the next 48 hours, Robert Murray of reports.

    The veteran reliever has put up a 4.43 ERA with 24 strikeouts across 18 appearances with Triple-A Iowa. Unless the Cubs are willing to clear a spot for him in the big-league bullpen, Duffey should head to the open market by the end of the weekend.

  • Cubs' Tyler Duffey: Gets NRI deal from Cubs

    Duffey signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

    Duffey has been given an invitation to major-league spring training, where he would seem to stand a decent chance of cracking the Opening Day bullpen. The 32-year-old posted a 4.91 ERA for the Twins in 2022 before eventually being released, but he held a 2.69 ERA and 174:48 K;BB across 144 frames for them from 2019-21. It's a fine no-risk signing by the Cubs.

  • Yankees' Tyler Duffey: Catches on with Yanks

    Duffey and the Yankees agreed Wednesday on a contract, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Duffey will join his third organization of the season after his long run with the Twins came to an end earlier this month before he joined the Rangers for a brief pit stop, only to opt out of his minor-league deal with Texas just over two weeks later. The 31-year-old righty had turned in an unremarkable 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 44 innings in the majors with Minnesota earlier this season, but he delivered a 2.69 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 21.6 K-BB% across 144 frames from 2019 through 2021. Duffey is initially expected to report to the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but he could be in the mix for a promotion to the big-league bullpen in the final month of the regular season.

  • Tyler Duffey: Heads to open market

    Duffey informed the Rangers on Sunday that he intends to opt out of his minor-league contract, Robert Murray of reports.

    Duffey's stay with the Rangers organization lasted just over two weeks, with the right-hander making four relief appearances at Triple-A Round Rock while striking out five over five innings and allowing one unearned run on five hits and four walks. His decision to pursue free agency likely was a result of Duffey not getting the impression that he was in line for a call-up to the Rangers when the 26-man active roster expands to 28 on Thursday.

  • Rangers' Tyler Duffey: Gets minors deal with Rangers

    Duffey signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Duffey was released by the Twins on Monday after struggling to a 4.91 ERA in 44 innings this season. It's not surprising that he quickly latched on with another club, however, as he cruised to a 2.69 ERA from 2019 to 2021. A modest bounceback would make Duffey a useful option down the stretch for the Rangers, and a full return to his previous form would make him one of the team's best relievers.

  • Tyler Duffey: Hits open market

    The Twins granted Duffey his release Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Duffey cleared waivers after the Twins designated him for assignment Friday, but rather than reporting to Triple-A St. Paul, he'll attempt to find work in another organization. Though none of baseball's other 29 teams were willing to put in a waiver claim on Duffey and take on the money remaining on his $3.8 million contract for 2022 while he had struggled to the tune of a 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 44 innings this season, his prior success in the majors should be enough for him to quickly catch on elsewhere at a more affordable price. After moving to a full-time relief role following the 2016 season, the 31-year-old Duffey produced a 3.99 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 18.0 K-BB% in 284 innings with Minnesota.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: DFA'd by Minnesota

    Duffey was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday.

    The 31-year-old was a major bullpen piece for the Twins over the past few years with 47 holds entering this year, but he struggled in 2022 with a 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 39:15 K:BB across 44 innings. Duffey could remain in the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed, though he could also opt to become a free agent.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Secures second save

    Duffey allowed a hit and struck out one to earn the save in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rangers.

    This was Duffey's second save of the year, and his only other one came May 16. Notably, Jhoan Duran gave up a solo home run to Corey Seager in the eighth inning. Save chances haven't been frequent for the Twins lately, and there's little clarity as to who the favorite for ninth-inning duties might be. Duffey has a 4.14 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 36:11 K:BB across 37 innings while adding two saves, nine holds and three blown saves in 33 outings, but he's been sharper lately with an active 13-inning scoreless streak.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Continues recent turnaround

    Duffey allowed no runs with no hits or walks while striking out four over 1.2 innings Thursday against the Guardians, and the addition of a changeup to his arsenal has contributed to his recent improvement, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Duffey has thrown nine scoreless innings over his last six appearances with a 8:2 K:BB. It's a stark turnaround after he began the season with a 6.38 ERA and 24:8 K:BB in his first 24 innings, a rough stretch that saw him relegated to low-leverage opportunities. Duffey has switched his pitch mix, relying less on a high fastball and using the changeup more frequently. He could return to a key setup role if he continues performing well.
