Roy­als place Duffy on DL

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS -

Kansas City Roy­als left-han­der Danny Duffy was placed on the 10-day dis­abled list Satur­day with a sore el­bow. Duffy had been sched­uled to start Sunday in the fi­nale of a three-game se­ries against the In­di­ans.

Duffy missed a month ear­lier in the sea­son with a strained right oblique. His lat­est in­jury comes as the Roy­als are try­ing to stay in the play­off chase. Duffy is 8-8 with a 3.78 ERA in 21 starts. Kansas City is third in the AL Cen­tral and trails first-place Cleve­land by seven games. The Roy­als are 1 ½ games out in the wild-card race.

Rookie left-han­der Eric Skoglund will start Sunday. The Roy­als also pur­chased the con­tract of lefty Onelki Gar­cia from Triple-A Omaha.

Del­monico heads to DL

The Chicago White Sox have placed rookie Nicky Del­monico on the 10-day dis­abled list with a sprained right wrist. The 25-year-old Del­monico, who can play a cou­ple dif­fer­ent po­si­tions, got hurt dur­ing Thurs­day night’s 5-1 vic­tory against Min­nesota. He was scratched from Fri­day’s lineup against Detroit.

Nats get­ting health­ier

As Bryce Harper misses base­ball while on the dis­abled list, many of his Na­tion­als team­mates are get­ting close to be­ing healthy again. Even with Harper still out with a bone bruise in his left knee and no timetable for his re­turn, the Na­tion­als are about to get some re­in­force­ments. Stephen Stras­burg is back on the mound, ace Max Scherzer could re­turn from a neck in­jury as soon as Sunday and short­stop Trea Turner and out­fielder Jayson Werth aren’t too far be­hind.

Scherzer threw a bullpen ses­sion Satur­day and would be in line to pitch the night game in Wash­ing­ton’s dou­ble­header with the New York Mets on Sunday. Man­ager Dusty Baker said Scherzer, who last pitched Aug. 13, was “very close.”
