Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis (back) was held out Thursday, Oct. 1, with a stiff back. RP Ryan Madson was used in the ninth inning instead against the Chicago White Sox. Manager Ned Yost said Davis' back isn't serious.
Fantasy Tip: Davis remains the Royals' closer with Greg Holland (elbow) having Tommy John surgery Friday, but it remains to be seen how much he'll pitch this weekend before the playoffs start.

Kansas City Royals RP Ryan Madson notched his first save of the season Saturday, July 18, against the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Madson picked up the save in extra innings after Greg Holland blew his third save earlier in the game. Madson's ratios have been solid this season, but unless Holland hits an extended rough patch, Madson's save chances will be few and far between.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (neck) is around two weeks behind his normal schedule, but he still expects to be ready by Opening Day. He's throwing a ball on flat ground at 120 feet without any problems, and he's resumed lifting weight and running. "Everything is feeling great -- no pain with it or anything like that. So my confidence is getting better," he said. Parnell will pitch more in B games early this spring to allow the team to control the settings of games. The Mets are still looking to add a veteran pitcher with late-innings experience as a safety blanket. They watched free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox) throw last week and are interested in free-agent RP Ryan Madson (Angels), too.
Fantasy Tip: Vic Black is the in-house option to take over in the ninth to start the year if Parnell isn't ready.
