WHIP, 61 strikeouts) Royals: Kris Bubic (0-0, 1.42 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 10 strikeouts) BOTTOM LINE: Kansas City and Milwaukee will meet on Tuesday. The Royals are 8-12 on their home turf. Kansas City has hit 37 home runs this season, last in the American League.
The Royals announced today that pitcher Danny Duffy will be placed on the 10-day Injured List with a left forearm flexor strain. No corresponding move has yet been announced. Duffy last pitched on May 12 against the Tigers.
