The Los Angeles Dodgers have eyes on Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis.
Fantasy Tip: The thinking is, with the Dodgers starting staff decimated due to injuries, that Kenley Jansen is getting overexposure as the team's closer. Having Davis would give the Dodgers two legitimate closers and maybe a split of the saves. Davis's fantasy value could take a short-term hit because his save production would go down, but he wouldn't be a disaster to own.

The Washington Nationals are one of several clubs that have expressed interest in Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis. However, the club's asking price is reportedly greater than the New York Yankees are seeking in exchange for RP Aroldis Chapman.
Fantasy Tip: The Royals have not decided if they will be sellers at the trade deadline and pursuing Chapman is reportedly the Nats' top priority, so a deal between Washington and Kansas City appears unlikely. The 30-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with 21 saves and a 1.14 ERA through 33 appearances in 2016, with 12 walks and 30 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings.

Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis (forearm) made his first appearance since June 30, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, July 16.

Kansas City Royals SP Wade Davis (forearm) was activated off the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, July 16. In a corresponding move, Kansas City optioned RP Brooks Pounders to Class AAA Omaha.
Fantasy Tip: The Royals went 3-8 in Davis' absence, so his owners didn't miss much. Kelvin Herrera will move back to a setup role after picking up his lone save opportunity, while Davis returns to his usual closer role with a 1.23 ERA and 19 saves in 21 chances. He is one of the best in the majors at slamming the door on the opposition and should be inserted back in lineups immediately.

Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis (forearm) could be activated from the disabled list Saturday, July 16, according to manager Ned Yost.
Fantasy Tip: Davis is a top-tier closer and owns a 1.23 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP with 28 strikeouts through 29 1/3 innings to go along with his 19 saves. Return him to you lineups as soon as he's activated from the DL.

Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis (forearm) said he is pain-free and has no inflammation in his right forearm after throwing Thursday, July 7, and Friday, July 8.
Fantasy Tip: This is a huge positive for Davis owners, and it clearly cuts into some of the short-term upside of Kelvin Herrera and Joakim Soria. Davis is a must-stash reliever, and Herrera and Soria are worth owning and starting in the majority of fantasy formats, and especially if you're chasing the saves category. Stay tuned for updates as Davis works his way back from the injury.
