Duffy has been named the Royals' Opening Day starter, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.
It's a well-earned honor for Duffy, who is set to begin his seventh season with the Royals. The southpaw had a breakout season in 2016, compiling a 3.51 ERA and a 9.4 K/9 while being used as both a starter and a reliever. After signing a five-year extension this offseason, Duffy's time in the bullpen will likely come to an end as he sees an increase his starter workload.
