WADE DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Twins move on up after Royals get caught standing around

The object of the game is to score “runs,” which seems like a pretty big clue: Standing in one place is a bad idea. The Royals made that mistake twice Sunday, once while they were in the field and once while they were at bat, and the Twins were the beneficiaries both times, leading to a 4-3 victory over Kansas City and a sweep of their three-game series at Target Field. The...

Asked to protect a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth with men on 1st and...

Twins rally to sweep Royals

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Pitcher Wade Davis made a wild flip home on a comebacker in the eighth inning and the Minnesota Twins rallied past the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep. A madcap sequence put the Twins ahead and a crazy play ended it, too. With two outs and none on in the ninth, Mike Moustakas popped a ball straight up. As he stood to watch it in the batter...

Royals score three times in eighth, but Davis' throwing error gives Twins 4-3 win

Like it should be: Davis and Holland lead bullpen bounce-back in Royals' win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It took 327 pitches and three hours and 37 minutes to finally resolve the Royals-White Sox game, and in the end it came down to which team could locate one or two pitchers who could simply throw strikes and get someone out. First, enter Wade Davis, the Royals' new Luke Hochevar, who has assumed Hoch's role as the primary setup man to closer Greg Holland...

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...

Royals' Wade Davis may miss Wednesday start

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals right-hander Wade Davis seems likely to miss his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Twins after the loss of his stepbrother, who collapsed and died during a softball game last weekend. Davis was told his stepbrother, Dustin Huguley, died in Florida on Saturday as the Royals were playing the Mets. Davis had pitched five innings in a no-decision...

Wade Davis needs to return to the Pen

by John Viril— Wade Davis is the worst starting pitcher in baseball. He just got bombed in New York in Kansas City’s 8-1 loss to the Yankees. He’s 4-8 on the year. Most importantly, his atrocious 5.89 ERA is higher than any other MLB starter. On the surface, it’s hard to explain Davis’ poor performance. His strikeout rate has zoomed since last season’s stint in the bullpen...

Wade Davis: The Best Case Scenario

In the wake of the Kansas City and Tampa Bay trade from Sunday night, many have speculated upon — and Jeff Sullivan has considered with something not unlike aplomb — how Wade Davis might perform in his return to the starting roation (i.e. the role he’s likely to assume with the Royals). As Sullivan notes, Davis was a not particularly excellent starter from 2009 to 2011. Then...
