Newly acquired lefty Danny Duffy is taking steps in the right direction to make his first appearance with the club since being traded for in July, per manager Dave Roberts.
The Dodgers skipper said Duffy was able to mix in all three of his pitches from his arsenal during his bullpen session on Sunday and that the team will ponder having him throw in a simulated game after a few more rounds of catch.
“I think for Duffy, he’ll continue to play catch the next couple of days,” Roberts said. “And in a few days, he’ll probably do it again. And then after the next one, I think we’ll probably entertain a simulated game.”
Duffy was placed on the Injured List and has been sidelined since May due to a left flexor strain but appears to be making progress.
The 11-year veteran spent all of his career with the Kansas City Royals before being dealt to the Dodgers during the trade deadline in July.
Duffy’s record currently sits at 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA in 12 starts this year.
