by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals RP Wade Davis notches ninth save of season


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Wade Davis bails out Greg Holland in win vs. Brewers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) Royals closer Greg Holland made his first appearance in six days Monday against the Brewers. However, things didn't exactly go to plan as he entered in the ninth inning with Kansas City ahead 8-2.

Holland faced six batters and could not get an out. The Brewers cut the lead to 8-5 before Wade Davis had to come on and finish off the win for his eighth save of the season.

"I made it exciting," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "That's my fault. I hadn't thrown him in six games. I had an opportunity to throw him in St. Louis to keep him fresh and I didn't. So yeah, that was rust. His stuff was really, really good. But everything kind of came back to the middle.

"It's just location and rust."

Holland was charged with three runs on four hits and one walk before Davis retired all three batters he faced.

"No, I wouldn't say [the layoff] was it," Holland said. "I threw a bullpen earlier today. My stuff, I thought, was the best I've had all year. I just made some bad mistakes when I was ahead in the count."

"We'll just see how he is tomorrow," Yost said, per MLB.com, "and go from there."

Royals RP Wade Davis still going strong as set-up man


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Royals reliever Wade Davis continues to be one of, if not the best eighth-inning set-up man in the game. Davis has made 17 appearances and has not allowed a single run to score this season. He has microscopic 0.647 WHIP and a pristine 16:4 K:BB ratio.

Though he lost some fantasy value when closer Greg Holland recently returned from the disabled list, Davis' ability to get strikeouts and limit baserunners makes him a very viable fantasy asset as he has remained exceptional at the back-end of the Royals' bullpen.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
