Sep. 4 7:51 PM PT8:51 PM MT9:51 PM CT10:51 PM ET22:51 ET2:51 GMT10:51 7:51 PM MST9:51 PM EST8:51 PM CST10:21 PM VEN6:51 UAE (+1)9:51 PM CT-Duffy (sore shoulder) will not pitch again this season after leaving his Tuesday start in the first inning. Duffy was on the disabled list from Aug. 13-23 with a similar injury and recently received an anti-inflammatory shot. ''The doctors said he can't have another shot for a while, so it makes sense just to shut him down,'' manager Ned Yost said.
Analysis: Duffy finishes the season 8-12 with a 4.88 ERA in 28 starts.
Aug. 29 1:56 PM PT2:56 PM MT3:56 PM CT4:56 PM ET16:56 ET20:56 GMT4:56 1:56 PM MST3:56 PM EST2:56 PM CST4:26 PM VEN0:56 UAE (+1)3:56 PM CT-Danny Duffy improved to 8-11, allowing one run on two hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Detroit Tigers 9-2 on Wednesday.

Analysis: The good news is it appears Duffy will miss only one start. Having been hammered for 16 runs and five homers in 10 2/3 innings over his previous three outings, he still won't be a recommended fantasy play.

Analysis: The left-hander came out of the game against an Arizona split squad with a trainer in the third inning. He threw 32 pitches and allowed a run on two hits with two walks and a strikeout. Duffy said the discomfort quickly went away after he was done.
