Royals Pitcher Danny Duffy Talks With Kansas City Baseball Vault


We’re getting anxious for spring training to start, but we can’t match the anticipation of Danny Duffy. Duffy took time out of his rehabbing to talk with the Kansas City Baseball Vault about the work he’s putting in to get back, his hopeful timetable, and his mindset as he looks to return in the middle of 2013. Last spring, Duffy was the most excited player in Royals camp. This year, he has to hang back while he continues to train after last June’s Tommy John surgery. He talked about that need for patience and dealing with frustration.

He’s also talked about his return to Twitter and interacting with fans. His new Twitter handle is @DannyDuffy805 and he’s looking to regain all of his old followers. And since he’s a California kid, we had to see if he’s rooting for the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Spoiler alert: that’s a yes.

Also, you might stick around for some outtakes at the end of the episode.
