WADE DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Time to See if the Royals Will Trade From a Strength

There was precedent for Wade Davis‘ amazing Royals transformation. You could, for example, point to Wade Davis, in 2012. Or you could point to any number of other guys who’ve found comfortable homes in the bullpen after struggling as starters. But a year before Davis turned into an unhittable Royals reliever — that is, the […]

Royals close to signing Hochevar, won't shift Davis back to rotation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Wednesday that the Royals are close to signing right-hander Luke Hochevar to a two-year deal reportedly in the $10.5 million range, but that the Royals were not yet ready to make an announcement. Hochevar, 31, made $5,210,000 last season, though he didn't pitch after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. The...

Just how good is Wade Davis?

Credit: AP/Matt Slocum Wade Davis continues to amaze out of the eighth inning. In the 2014 playoffs, the Kansas City Royals’ setup man has surrendered just one run in 11.1 innings. He’s only allowed five hits and two walks. On top of this postseason dominance, he posted a 1.00 ERA in the regular season and never gave up a home run. So this all begs the question, how filthy is...

Wade Davis’ Wife Left World Series Ticket In Lieu Of Tip For Waiter

Wife of Royals pitcher leaves World Series ticket as tip

Anyone who’s eaten out know that restaurant workers are doing it for the tips.  Hoping for that 18%, maybe 20% if they really make you feel like a friend.  Or even a World Series ticket?  Kansas City Royals reliever Wade Davis’ wife had an extra ticket to World Series Game 1 and thought her server at a local “Rock and Brews” might want to join them.  KMBC, the ABC affiliate...

Get To Know Him - Wade Davis

It's a little ridiculous that I have to do a get to know him on the best relief pitcher in baseball this year. I'm not sure if it's because he plays for the Kansas City Royals or because he is not a closer, but regardless everyone should know who this guy is and know what he has done this season.#453820324 / gettyimages.comWade Davis is pitching in his 6th MLB season, the first...

The bullpen is your home, Wade Davis

As recently as this last spring, Wade Davis has expressed his desire to be a starting pitcher. It's not going to happen, Mr. Davis. First, you're not good enough as a starter and secondly, you are too darned good as a relief pitcher. The difference between the two variations of Wade Davis is remarkable and if the Royals' reliever wants a long, long career in baseball...

He might not know exactly why, but Royals' Davis is dominating in relief

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Same approach, different results. Very different results. Royals right-hander Wade Davis swears he's not pitching much differently as a reliever than he was a starter. Nor does he get more "amped up" coming out of the bullpen than he did when he was a starter. "If anything," Davis says, "I was more amped up as a starter. Seriously." Yet something must explain...

Long shot or not, Wade Davis still thinks he can be a starter

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For now, right-hander Wade Davis still considers himself a viable candidate for the Royals' rotation. And manager Ned Yost has dutifully said Davis will get every opportunity to win the job. But realistically, it certainly appears Davis is a long shot to beat out Yordano Ventura, Danny Duffy or Luke Hochevar for that final spot. The Royals discovered last season...
