Wade Davis will probably rejoin the KC Royals’ bullpen. Will he add real value?
Between now and Opening Day, the Kings of Kauffman writers are analyzing how various KC Royals performed last season and predicting Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys how they might fare this year. Up today is relief pitcher Wade Davis.

No matter the slant or spin applied, or statistical adjustments made, there is no question the KC Royals improved last season. Perhaps nowhere were they better than in the bullpen, where a suddenly competent band of relievers made a sore spot a strength. And if Wade Davis has anything to say and do about it, the relief corps could be even better in 2021.

Davis is in Kansas City’s spring camp on a pass, a non-roster invitation that came with the minor league contract he signed to get a shot at rejoining the team he pitched for in two World Series and for which he obtained the final, winning out in the 2015 title game. So far, Davis has done nothing to discourage the Royals from converting that minor league deal to a major league contract, and is almost certain to be sitting in the Kauffman Stadium bullpen when the Royals open the regular season against Texas in 10 days.

Davis last pitched in a Cactus League game Saturday, another in a series of one-inning stints mirroring how the Royals typically used him after making him a reliever in 2014. An infield single was all Arizona could manage against him, and one of only four hits he’s given up in six games. He hasn’t surrendered a run and, in many ways, looks like the Davis who pitched so well for the Royals, Cubs and Rockies before finally falling into decline and disrepair (oblique and shoulder) in Colorado. He lost his closer’s job in 2019, had an 8.65 ERA, and pitched only briefly in 2020.

But Davis doesn’t strike out as many batters as he used two; in fact, he’s fanned only two this spring, a rate far below his career 8.5 SO9, career-best 13.6 in 2014, the 8.9 he posted despite having that ultra-high ERA in 2019, and even last season’s 6.2. Not surprisingly, he doesn’t throw as hard as he used to and, at 35 (36 in September), he probably won’t.

Davis is proving he can still pitch and, unless things change drastically in the next few days, won’t be looking for work when Kansas City breaks camp after its last exhibition game a week from today. Instead, he’ll be employed as a Royal again.

How will things shape up for him when the club starts playing for real April 1?

Baseball and FanGraphs projections for Wade Davis’ 2021 KC Royals season
Baseball Reference and FanGraphs predict Davis’ 2021 won’t resemble his good Kansas City seasons. Baseball Reference foresees him going 2-3 with a disturbing 5.91 ERA (and, curiously, seven saves), characteristically striking out nine batters per nine innings, and walking too many (4.4 BB9). FanGraphs (Depth Charts version) projects a 3-4, 4.99, no save campaign with a 9.02 SO9 and 4.98 BB9.

What kind of campaign will Davis actually have for the KC Royals?
Davis won’t last the season in Kansas City if he pitches like Baseball Reference and FanGraphs predict he will. Even nostalgia and his history with the club won’t convince the Royals to use him when younger internal options can do better, especially if they’re in, or close to, contention.

But a Davis free from the oblique and shoulder issues that plagued him during his last two Colorado seasons will pitch more like he has this spring than how Baseball Reference and FanGraphs project. Look for a few wins and losses, but not many of either, and an ERA closer to 3.00 than 5.00. He won’t strike out hitters like he once did, but his control will improve and he’ll be effective.

Davis’ role in manager Mike Matheny’s system will be the same as other KC relievers—the best matchups generally determine who gets the ball in any given situation. Davis can expect to pitch in early, middle, and late relief, will rarely get more than an inning, and might receive a few save opportunities.

No matter when he pitches, Davis has another responsibility with the Royals’ young bullpen. Together with former teammates Greg Holland and Ervin Santana (if Santana makes the club), mentoring, and setting on and off the field championship examples, will be the order of each day.

Expect Davis to make the Kansas City bullpen better.

It looks like Wade Davis is headed back to the Royals. His return should be a good one.

Jarrod Dyson Jersey

SURPRISE, Ariz. — The Royals continue add familiar faces to their roster, signing veteran outfielder Jarrod Dyson to a one-year Major League deal, the club announced Friday night.

The Royals will pay Dyson $1.5 million with $250,000 in performance bonuses based on plate appearances, a source told MLB.com.

Dyson, 36, spent his first seven seasons Nike Kansas City Royals Jerseys
with the Royals, hitting .260 with a .325 on-base percentage and 176 stolen bases in 550 games.

Dyson won the World Series with the club in 2015, scoring the title-clinching run on Christian Colon’s 12th-inning single in Game 5 of the Fall Classic against the Mets at Citi Field. A 50th-round Draft pick in the 2006 MLB Draft, Dyson went on to be a key part of the Royals’ back-to-back pennant-winning teams. He coined the phrase, “That’s what speed do,” in 2014, which became a rallying cry over the next two years at Kauffman Stadium.

The Royals traded Dyson to the Mariners for right-hander Nate Karns in 2017, and the outfielder went on to play two seasons with the D-backs before appearing in 32 games for the Pirates and White Sox in ’20.

Dyson is the latest member of the 2015 Royals to return to the club for ’21, joining relievers Greg Holland and Wade Davis. Holland signed a one-year deal with Kansas City in December after pitching for the team in 2020, and Davis signed a Minor League contract in January.

Left-hander Mike Minor and right-hander Ervin Santana are also former Royals who have played in other organizations and signed back with the club this offseason. The Royals have put an emphasis on leadership in their camp this spring, hoping that the veterans added can leave an imprint both on and off the field on their young core of players rising in the big leagues or on the verge of making their debuts.

Dyson will likely slot in as the Royals’ fourth outfielder, joining left fielder Andrew Benintendi, center fielder Michael A. Taylor and right fielder Whit Merrifield. Outfield prospects Nick Heath and Edward Olivares are vying for bench spots this spring, but adding Dyson to the mix gives the Royals another left-handed bat in their lineup and more veteran experience in their outfield.

Hanser Alberto Jersey

Infielder Hanser Alberto waited patiently for his time to come to get the chance as an everyday player in a Major League Baseball team’s lineup. When that chance came, Alberto flourished. Yet he still found himself without a team this winter.

The Kansas City Royals swooped in and Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys made what manager Mike Matheny described as a “sneaky good” signing when they secured Alberto on a minor-league contract in February. While not a brand-name player with gaudy statistics, Alberto potentially gives the Royals a versatile starting-caliber bench option with a proven bat.

“This offseason was slow and weird,” Alberto said on Sunday. “I’m not going to lie. It surprised me a little bit because the last two years I’ve been playing really good. I didn’t find an MLB deal. I had a lot of teams calling and offering me minor-league and a lot of stuff like that.

“Here, in this organization, I think it’s a good fit for me. We’ve got a lot of young talent. We’ve got veterans, but they’re still young.”

The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Alberto, 28, came to Royals camp as a non-roster invitee. The right-handed hitter and native of Dominican Republic made his MLB debut in 2015 with the Texas Rangers. He remained with the Rangers through the 2018 season.

After having appeared in 89 games in three seasons — a shoulder injury wiped out almost the entirety of his 2017 season —the Baltimore Orioles claimed Alberto off waivers in 2019.

He started 181 games for the Orioles in the past two seasons, including 52 games in last year’s 60-game season. He batted .299 with a .322 on-base percentage and a .413 slugging percentage from 2019-20.

During those two seasons, he ranked 15th in wins above replacement (2.6) among second basemen as calculated by FanGraphs.com, just slightly behind San Diego Padres infielder Jurickson Profar (2.7).

Alberto credited his success as a starter in recent years to learning from veteran players with the Rangers, even though he played sparingly.

“I just had all that information in my mind and now I put it together,” Alberto said. “When you get the opportunity to play, it doesn’t matter if you got 0 for 3, 0 for 4, and you know you’re going to be in the lineup the next day. That kind of gets you relaxed, more comfortable.”

The Orioles non-tendered Alberto, who was about to reach arbitration for the first time in his career, in December. Rather than risk getting locked into a significant salary increase, the Orioles let Alberto hit the open market.

“We have absolutely loved having Hanser in every way, shape or form since he got here,” Orioles general manager Mike Elias told reporters at the non-tender deadline. “He’s a terrific player. I expect that he’ll have opportunity and interest, but part of our job is to operate within the economic framework of the collective bargaining agreement and the quirks of the arbitration system.”

Despite having enjoyed success in a starting role, Alberto appears amenable to whatever role Matheny asks of him with the Royals.

“(I want to bring) the same things that I bring to the other teams, my high energy, being a good teammate on and off the field and go out there and have fun, enjoy the game, do my best and try to do my part to help the team win and be ready for whatever the manager needs me to be,” Alberto said.

Alberto has started games at every infield position as well as in the outfield during his MLB career, but he has made 142 of his 226 starts in the majors at second base.

However, Nicky Lopez enters the season as the Royals’ starting second baseman, and the organization appears committed to him at least for the short term. Adalberto Mondesi remains entrenched as the everyday shortstop and Hunter Dozier will move back to third base this year.

Should the Royals need someone to step in for an extended period of time due to injury, Alberto provides the Royals with depth at several positions.

“You talk about a player who is highly regarded by everybody that he has ever been around, any team that he has been with,” Matheny said. “That’s this guy. You can never have too much of that.”

Alberto struck out just 80 times in 781 plate appearances and batted .394 against left-handed pitching the past two seasons. That batting average ranked first among players with at least 100 plate appearances against lefties.

“He has consistently been a terror on left-handed pitching,” Matheny said. “We know that that’s something he brings to the table. You can see how that piece would fit no matter how everything else played out.”
