Duffy was in the Kansas City clubhouse prior to Tuesday night's game and said he felt ``better than ever,'' adding that he was pain-free for the first time since high school.
The 24-year-old Duffy was 2-2 with a 3.90 ERA in six starts last season before landing on the disabled list with pain in his left elbow. He had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in 2010 before tearing it enough to require surgery in May 2012.
Duffy will be filling in for right-hander Wade Davis, who went on the family emergency leave list after the sudden death of his stepbrother.
