The Los Angeles Dodgers are close to acquiring Danny Duffy from the Kansas City Royals, according to a report.

The Royals are expected to receive a player to be named in return.

Duffy, 32, has 10-and-5 rights, allowing him to veto any trade.

The left-hander, who has posted a 2.51 ERA in 13 outings this season, hasn't pitched since July 16 and is on the 10-day injured list with a left flexor strain.
