Royals Rumblings - News for September 16, 2020

“Let’s go OVER THERE!” | Minda Haas Kuhlmann

Be excellent to each other.

Mike Matheny’s response to the incident with Danny Duffy, per Jeffrey Flanagan:

While a report surfaced at WDAF-TV in Kansas City that Duffy had been involved in some type of vehicular incident Monday night causing him to miss the charter, Matheny would not confirm that report.

“We’re still getting all the information,” Matheny said. “What it really comes down to is him missing the team flight [Monday]. I was very happy that he was able to get here to Detroit last night. We’re having conversations and sorting through the details. But at this point, missing that flight, we’ll take his start [Tuesday].”

Matheny said he was not aware of any legal issues involving Duffy.

Matheny also said he did not know when Duffy (3-3, 4.24 ERA) would start again.

“We haven’t gone down that road yet,” Matheny said.

Some more off-field details from KCPD via Carrington Harrison:

Clint Scoles has a post at Patreon for subscribers speculating that the Royals went public with some details of the Duffy situation to soften the blow, PR-wise, of trading him this offseason.

Commenting note: I’m sure new details about Danny Duffy’s mysterious car crash will emerge between the time I compiled these Rumblings and the time they go up, but let’s do our best to frame the discussion around factual details and impact on the Royals until the full story comes to light.
