Duffy's Tommy John surgery successful
KANSAS CITY -- Left-handed pitcher Danny Duffy underwent successful Tommy John surgery by Dr. Lewis Yocum on Wednesday in Los Angeles, according to the Royals.

"Dr. Yocum was very pleased with it," said team spokesman Mike Swanson.

Swanson said that Duffy was already getting antsy and was filling his time by Tweeting and texting teammates -- with his right hand, of course.

His surgery was delayed by strep throat. Duffy has been out since May 14, finishing his season with a 2-2 record and 3.90 ERA in six starts. Normal recovery time for the elbow reconstruction procedure is 10 to 14 months.
