Royals reinstate closer Wade Davis from disabled list

BY foxsports • July 16, 2016

DETROIT (AP) The Kansas City Royals have reinstated closer Wade Davis from the 15-day disabled list.

Davis hasn't pitched since June 30 because of a strained right forearm. The right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA and 19 saves in 30 games.

Kansas City also optioned right-hander Brooks Pounders to Triple-A Omaha before Saturday night's game at Detroit.

Davis has been one of the key components to a bullpen that has led the Royals to back-to-back American League pennants and a World Series title last season. He went 8-1 with a 0.94 ERA and 17 saves in 2015. The previous year, he was 9-2 with a 1.00 ERA.
