RP - KC - IL60
The Royals have placed right-handed reliever Wade Davis on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain. The move is retroactive to Sunday, June 27th.
Davis has struggled this season, going 0-2 with an 8.06 ERA, 1.64 WHIP, and .307 OBA through 25.2 innings of relief work. In a corresponding move, the Royals called up southpaw Richard Lovelady from Omaha.
Wade Davis (0-2) allowed two runs on three hits across 2/3 inning during Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the White Sox. He blew the save opportunity and was tagged with his second loss of the season.
Davis entered Sunday’s game in the ninth inning to protect a 3-2 lead but was unable to secure the save. He surrendered two runs on three hits blowing his first save of the season. Davis owns a 7.53 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and a 14:6 K: BB across 14 1/3 innings. The 35-year-old is 1-for-2 in save opportunities and mainly in option in deep-league formats.
The Royals added RHP Wade Davis to their 40-man roster.
Davis is having a productive spring after a disastrous few years in Colorado. He won't be a fantasy option unless he starts seeing save chances, which isn't something to count on.
The Royals signed RHP Wade Davis to a minor league contract.
Davis made just five appearances in 2020 and hasn't been an effective reliever since 2017. He has a history in Kansas City, however, so this should be viewed as a low-cost reclamation project.
The Rockies released RHP Wade Davis.
Davis was designated for assignment last week and passed through waivers unclaimed. It's the end of a disastrous tenure with the Rockies. Davis signed a three-year, $52 million contract prior to the 2018 season only to post a 6.49 ERA during his time in Colorado.
