Wade Davis earns first win despite blown save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Royals setup man Wade Davis was credited with a blown save and a win Saturday afternoon against the White Sox.

Davis (1-1) coughed up a two-run advantage, allowing a run-scoring single to Conor Gillaspie and a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. Salvador Perez came to the rescue with a run-scoring double in the bottom of the frame, giving Kansas City the win.

Davis allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning pitched. He has a 6.23 ERA over 4 1/3 innings pitched this season.

Wade Davis dispatched to bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The Royals have moved Wade Davis to the bullpen to fill the void left by the season-ending elbow injury of key receiver Luke Hochevar.

Davis was no lock to earn a spot in the rotation anyway. He was behind Yordano Ventura and Danny Duffy on the depth chart and has been far more effective coming out of the bullpen throughout his career. He boasts a 4.57 career ERA as a starter and 2.24 ERA as a reliever.

"He's a dominant factor down there for us," Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star. "Once we lost Hoch, it became apparent to me that his presence was sorely needed down there."

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

"He had some struggles, but he also had some very good games," said manager Ned Yost. "Transitioning again from starter to reliever, I think he learned a lot. It's just getting consistent and having a solid approach every time he goes out."

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

The reason they are going to Class A is that Wilmington's season ends soon and they can both return to the Royals' roster at that time. 

"We sent them there in order to get the back on (Tuesday)," manager Ned Yost acknowledged. "Wade is going to go to the pen. We’ll let him get two innings under his belt to get re-acclimated to relieving. He’ll throw one two-inning stint on Saturday and then be back and ready to go for us on (Tuesday). Louis Coleman is going to throw an inning (on Thursday) and an inning on Saturday, and then be ready to be back."
