Danny Duffy fired seven innings of one-run ball in Friday’s 6-5 win over the Twins.

Duffy gave up a sacrifice fly to Max Kepler in the fourth inning, but otherwise kept the Twins off the board. The southpaw struck out four and walked three while inducing just seven swinging strikes in his 114 pitches. Still, Duffy continues to command attention in fantasy leagues, as he has allowed one run or fewer in five out of his last six starts. Assuming he doesn’t get traded, he lines up for a favorable matchup against the Tigers at home next week.

Kyle Gibson surrendered four runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday.

Gibson walked two batters and allowed six hits, including a solo homer to Lucas Duda in his final inning of work. He struck out five and induced 16 swinging strikes in his 103 pitches. The loss was his first since June 27. Gibson has shown legitimate signs of growth this year, posting a 3.57 ERA through 20 starts with 119 strikeouts in 121 innings. There’s always the chance that the Twins will listen to offers on hm, but there’s no urgency since he’s still under team control for another year.

Brandon Maurer secured a one-out save Friday versus the Twins.

It wasn’t a save situation initially, as Wily Peralta began the ninth inning with the Royals up by four runs. However, he was pulled after giving two runs followed by a two-out walk to Eduardo Escobar. It didn’t come easily for Maurer, as he allowed a leadoff single to load the bases before walking Mitch Garver to force in a run. However, he got Max Kepler to fly out to left field to finally end the ballgame. Maurer has compiled a 12.00 ERA in 15 appearances this season, and hasn’t struck out a batter in his last five appearances. Anything could happen in the backend of this bullpen at this point, but Maurer is probably a long shot to see more save chances.

Lucas Duda went 3-for-4 with a homer, three RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Twins.

Duda had a pop fly drop along the left field line in the first inning, which resulted in two runs scoring. He later slugged a solo homer in the fourth inning. It was a nice night for Duda, but he entered Friday’s action with a rough .188/.274/.375 batting line in 18 games since coming off the disabled list about a month ago. He’s known to be streaky, so fantasy owners will have to hope this is the start of something good.

Salvador Perez went 1-for-4 with two-run double in Friday’s win over the Twins.

The seventh-inning double gave the Royals a five-run lead at the time, but they ended up needing every last bit of it. The 28-year-old has produced a disappointing .222/.259/.396 batting line on the year, but he’s at least picked up the pace here in July. He’s hit safely in seven straight games while batting .290 (9-for-31) with nine RBI.
Jul 21 - 2:07 AM

Mitch Garver went 1-for-3 with two walks and two RBI in Friday’s loss to the Royals.

Garver played a big part in the Twins’ comeback attempt late, as he tripled home a run in the eighth inning before drawing a bases-loaded walk one inning later. The 27-year-old made the start out of the DH spot on Friday while Bobby Wilson caught Kyle Gibson. Garver has done a decent enough job with the bat, posting a .250/.338/.378 batting line with four homers and 15 RBI through 61 games, but he’s not looking like mixed league material.

Wade LeBlanc limited the White Sox to one run over 7 1/3 innings and fanned 10 in a victory over the White Sox on Friday.

LeBlanc matched his career high for strikeouts; he also fanned 10 against the Dodgers on Sept. 23, 2011. He's managed to ride his assortment of slop to a 6-1 record and a 3.44 ERA to date. The 15 starts he's made this season are the second highest total of his career; he made 25 for the Padres in 2010.
Jul 21 - 2:01 AM

Edwin Diaz threw a hitless ninth for his 37th save Friday against the White Sox.

Diaz bounced back nicely from the All-Star Game blown save. He hasn't allowed a run in a regular-season game since June 23, and he hasn't blown a save in 18 chances since June 1.
