|Wade Davis settles for no-decision|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(1:08 am ET) Royals starter Wade Davis endured some command issues as he walked four but did not factor in the decision Tuesday night against the Astros.
Davis served up a three-run home run to Jimmy Paredes in the third inning for his only damage of the night. The right-hander was charged with three runs and eight hits over five innings of work. He struck out five in a 7-3 victory.
Davis has not made it out of the sixth inning in his last three starts. He is 1-1 with a whopping 8.21 ERA over that span. He is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at home against the Angels. He allowed four runs and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings of work in his previous start against the Angels on May 15.

(5/16/13) Royals starter Wade Davis got plenty of run support on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. He didn't have the best of outings, but he did pick up a win.
Davis improved to 3-3, allowing four earned runs on nine hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. He threw 103 pitches and struck out two batters.
The Royals put up seven runs in the third inning to back him but he failed to go deep into the game. Davis has had trouble with that this season, but at least he snapped a three-game losing streak.
Davis makes his next start for the Royals Tuesday in Houston.
|Don't wait for a Wade Davis rebound|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(5/13/13) A couple of weeks back, my colleague, Scott White, had advised owners to give up on Wade Davis after a pair of poor starts. After thriving as a reliever last season with the Rays and getting off to a decent start in the Royals' rotation this year, I thought Davis deserved a longer trial, but I was wrong.
Since then, Davis has registered a quality start against the White Sox and another bad start vs. the Yankees. Davis' two other good starts -- and the ones in which he has recorded the most strikeouts -- were against the Twins and Braves. So what we have learned is that Davis can rack up Ks against lineups that are prone to striking out, but he hasn't been up to the task against lineups that are less inclined to strike out.
It could just be coincidence, but even if Davis' results haven't been matchup-driven, his overall stats don't suggest that he has improved as a starter since his earlier years with the Rays. With a 29 percent ownership rate, Davis may still be overowned, even with his RP-eligibility in points leagues.
|Wade Davis surrenders seven runs in loss|

(5/10/13) Royals starting pitcher Wade Davis was rocked in Friday night's start against the Yankees, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and two walks in five innings while striking out three. He gave up two. two-run homers in the start and has given up at least seven earned runs in two of his past three games.
Davis takes a 2-3 record and 5.86 ERA into a start against the Angels in Anaheim Wednesday.
|Wade Davis takes no-decision in quality start|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Royals starter Wade Davis took a no-decision despite a sharp start Sunday against the White Sox.
Davis allowed just one run on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts. The quality start stops a streak of two straight starts with at least seven runs allowed in less than five innings. Davis's ERA is still suffering from those two outings, as Sunday's start lowered it to a still ugly 4.75.
|When Wade Davis first arrived in the majors to make six starts for the Rays late in 2009, he tantalized owners by striking out nearly a batter per inning. As a member of the Tampa Bay rotation for the following two seasons, Davis never came close to that level of dominance, getting only 228 Ks over 352 innings. With successive ERAs above 4.00, Davis was quickly surpassed by Jeremy Hellickson and Matt Moore as the attention-grabbing pitching phenoms. It took a move to the bullpen in 2012 to restore Davis' luster, as he gained 2 mph on his fastball and struck out 87 batters in 70 1/3 innings. On the heels of that success, Davis was traded this offseason -- along with James Shields -- to the Royals, who will try him once again as a starter. Davis will have a hard time matching his velocity and K-rate from his bullpen stint now that he is back in a rotation, but as he is just reaching his peak years, Davis could turn in a better season with the Royals than he ever did as a starter for the Rays. Particularly in points leagues where he can be used in a reliever slot, Davis is worth a late-round flyer in mixed leagues. (Updated 1/2/13)|
