KANSAS CITY -- Royals left-hander Danny Duffywas cited on Sunday night on suspicion of driving under the influence, the club confirmed Tuesday.
The incident reportedly happened in Overland Park, Kan., a suburb of Kansas City.
In a statement, Royals general manager Dayton Moore said: "We are obviously disappointed in the news we have received regarding Danny Duffy's DUI arrest on Sunday night. Danny was not part of the team traveling back from Cleveland on Sunday because he had returned to Kansas City a day earlier to undergo an MRI examination.

We are still in the early stages of gathering the details, but I do know that Danny has always been accountable as a member of this organization and we expect the same accountability from him as this process moves forward. We obviously do not condone anyone driving while under the influence, but this is now a legal matter and we will allow the process to unfold and cannot comment any further."
Duffy's MRI confirmed a low-grade pronator strain on his left elbow. He was placed on the disabled list Saturday, retroactive to Wednesday.
Duffy was in the Royals' clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium on Monday prior to the game against the Rays, but he did not speak with reporters.
