Brandon Duckworth to start Sunday

The Royals are expected to recall right handed pitcher Brandon Duckworth from AAA Omaha to make the 1 p.m. start Sunday against the Tigers at Kauffman Stadium.
Duckworth, who pitched last season for the Royals, has spent the entire season at Omaha after failing to make the club out of spring training. The Royals will need to make a corresponding roster move to clear someone from the team's 25 and 40 man rosters to fit Duckworth. It is not known at this time who that player will be.
Personally, I'm happy to see Duck back in the bigs. He's a good guy and someone you root for. Always a great interview and a real intellegent guy. He has the stuff, hopefully he can do more good than bad this time up.
