Royals and LHP Duffy agree to 1-year contract

The Kansas City Royals and pitcher Danny Duffy have agreed to a

one-year contract for $487,750.

The team announced the move Tuesday.

The 23-year-old left-hander is expected to be a member of Kansas

City’ rotation this season after going 4-8 with a 5.64 ERA in 20

starts as a rookie last year.

The Royals say every player on their 40-man roster has now

agreed to a 2012 contract. The club plays its first spring training

game Sunday against the Texas Rangers.
