Report: Giants interested in Duffy despite injury
Duffy landed on the injured list Tuesday with a left flexor strain, which could keep him out into August. He missed time earlier in the season with a similar injury.
But the Giants could still look to acquire the southpaw for the stretch run, potentially adding him to a rotation that features Kevin Gausman, Anthony DeSclafani, Johnny Cueto, and Alex Wood. Duffy owns a 2.51 ERA over 12 starts and one relief appearance this season.
The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly also interested in Duffy, who won a World Series with the Royals in 2015. The Giants, Dodgers, and Padres are locked in a three-way battle for NL West supremacy.
Duffy, 32, is in the final season of a five-year, $65-million contract.
