The Yankees have reportedly shown interest in Royals starter LHP Danny Duffy, reports The Post's Joel Sherman.
Duffy, 29, has been with the Royals since 2011 where he has served as both a starter and reliever. Last season, he started in all of his 24 apperances, posting a 3.81 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 146.1 innings.
The Royals gave a five-year, $65 million contract extension to Duffy last season. He will be owed $14 million next season, $15.25 million in 2019 and 2020, and finally, $15.5 million in 2021 before hitting free agency.
Having not re-signed CC Sabathia, the Yankees are looking around for a left arm to join Masahiro Tanaka, Luis Severino, and Sonny Gray in the starting rotation. The only other potential other in the rotation would be Jordan Montgomery, who had a great rookie season.
