Duffy, 32, is currently injured with a flexor strain, but is believed to be returning soon. The lefty is 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA this season. He has pitched for Kansas City his whole 11-year career with a 3.95 ERA.
The Dodgers have plenty of starting pitching, so they may move Duffy to the bullpen to help the team out. They currently are in second place in the National League West with a 62-41 record. The addition of Duffy means they are preparing for a playoff push as they continue their quest for a repeat championship.
Kansas City sits at fourth place in the American League Central with a record of 45-56. With the team currently in a rebuild, it makes sense to deal Duffy, who is a free agent after the season.
