Wade Davis dispatched to bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"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."

"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."


Wade Davis, Louis Coleman headed to Class A


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."
