Royals RP Wade Davis earns 17th save of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals reliever Wade Davis struck out both batters he faced Saturday to notch his 17th save of the season.

With Greg Holland headed for Tommy John surgery, Davis now has the closer role to himself heading into the postseason, and a big performance in the October spotlight can only help boost his market value as he heads into free agency.

Royals RP Wade Davis was unavailable due to back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Wade Davis was unavailable Thursday due to back stiffness, the Kansas City Star reports.

As a result of Davis' unavailability Thursday, Ryan Madson picked up the save for the Royals. However, the issue doesn't appear serious, so it wouldn't be surprising if Davis is available again within the next few days if needed.

Royals closer Wade Davis collects 15th save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals closer Wade Davis struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning en route to his 15th save in a 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.

If Davis were the closer all season long, he would likely be the best closer in the league. In 65 2/3 innings pitched this season, Davis holds a ridiculous 0.96 ERA and 0.81 WHIP. With Greg Holland going under the knife for Tommy John surgery, Davis becomes a top-five closing option next season.

Royals name pitcher Wade Davis as closer for rest of season
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Wade Davis has been named the Royals' closer for the rest of the regular season and into the playoffs, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. 

With Greg Holland's performance suffering as a result of elbow tightness and diminished velocity, manager Ned Yost has decided to make the switch to Davis for the remainder of the 2015 campaign.

Holland will be given at least a couple days to rest, and it's uncertain where he'll fit in upon his return, as Yost said he does not currently have a defined role for him.

Royals RP Greg Holland will rest while nursing elbow tightness
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals closer Greg Holland is dealing with elbow tightness and will rest for a couple days, Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star reports.

It's been clear in Holland's recent appearances that something's been bothering the right-hander, as his fastball has been hovering around 90-91 mph in his last five outings, down from his typical mid-90s velocity. As it turns out, he's battling through elbow tightness, but the Royals seem to think a brief rest will help him to a large extent. Wade Davis will close in Holland's absence.
