Kansas City Royals Player News: All Positions

News: Fillmyer was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Impact: Fillmyer's latest trip to Kansas City lasted just three days. He did not get into a game. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
News: Duffy (3-1) allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Angels on Sunday.
Impact: The 30-year-old has been far from elite, but this was one of his stronger outings of the season, and he's now won three straight starts. Duffy began the season on the injured list because of a shoulder injury, but in five outings, he is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 28.2 innings. While he's had trouble with walks, Duffy owns a 3.04 ERA in the last four contests. The lefty will pitch again as the Royals host the Yankees next Sunday.
