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.
