LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have gotten Kansas City left-hander Danny Duffy in a trade as the World Series champions boosted their rotation for a playoff push.
The Royals sent their longtime staff member and cash to the Dodgers for a player to be named.
The 32-year-old Duffy is on the 10-day injured list with a strained left flexor and last pitched on July 16. He missed more than a month earlier this season with a similar injury.
Duffy is 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA this season.
The Dodgers are three games behind San Francisco in the NL West after losing to the Giants 5-0 on Thursday.
