Duffy scratched from Friday's start
CLEVELAND -- Danny Duffy will not make his scheduled start Friday at Minnesota, as he is dealing with minor tightness in his left elbow.

In three starts, the hard-throwing southpaw is 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA. He has 20 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings, and he is expected to make his next turn in the rotationm at Detroit on Wednesday.

As Duffy tweeted from @dduffkc23: "i appreciate all the love! The elbow is "feelin good, feelin alrighttt, yeaaa.." Ill be back next start!"

The Royals are expected to announce Friday's starter following the conclusion of Thursday's contest against the Indians. They could choose long reliever Everett Teaford or call up a pitcher from the Minors.
