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.

In the bottom of the second inning of Kansas City’s 3-2 win over the Rangers in their six-inning Cactus League opener on Sunday, the Royals saw what they hope their lineup can do all season. At least, they almost saw it.

After Nicky Lopez, playing shortstop to open exhibition games, singled to right field, Whit Merrifield put two on base with a slow single to third. Then left fielder Andrew Benintendi turned a long plate appearance into a Kansas City Royals Jerseys China walk Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys to load the bases for first baseman Carlos Santana — the exact scenario the Royals had in mind when they acquired Benintendi and signed Santana this offseason.

But because it was Spring Training in 2021, the Rangers were able to end the inning there, with two outs, because right-hander Nick Vincent had reached his pitch count.

“I understand why, but obviously there we wanted to see what we could do with two outs with the score 2-1,” Benintendi said. “Good first day, though.”

Benintendi was 0-for-1 with the walk in his Royals debut. The 26-year-old is focusing on the first few weeks of exhibition games to get his timing down.

“He’s already going in and working deep counts, and you can just see he’s got an approach,” manager Mike Matheny said. “Some guys just see the ball better. I always thought that’d be a lot of fun to be able to see the ball like some of these guys because they see it different. He’s still a young player, but he has a mature approach at the plate. Obviously strike zone awareness, but also trying to take advantage of portions of the plate or choosing a pitch type.”

In addition to that plate discipline, Benintendi had focused this offseason on his swing path and making sure it’s level, which promotes solid contact and line drives to all parts of the field.

“For a player like me, obviously I’m not a huge guy, so I don’t have to really worry too much about power,” Benintendi said. “And I think that’s going back to like 2018, where if it goes out, cool. If it doesn’t, then hopefully it’s a double or triple. I think, for me, I can tell when I have the plane right if I pull the ball and it has backspin not topspin. In my work, BP, in the cage, they’re being backspun to right field, so I’m pretty happy with where it is.”

Benintendi said the transition from the Red Sox to the Royals has been an easy one, thanks to the group of players he’s around. He’s leaned on Merrifield for help adjusting to the new organization.

“It’s been great,” Benintendi said. “Everybody here’s been extremely receptive. They made this transition extremely easy for me. I already feel like I’m tight with the group. I don’t think it could have gone better.”

Davis gets quick inning
In his spring debut, Royals reliever Wade Davis flashed an improved velocity, life on his fastball and the ability to get what Matheny called “some ugly swings.” Plus, the veteran earned his first win of the spring.

Davis allowed one hit, but he got a 1-2-3 inning when center fielder Bubba Starling threw out Jason Martin trying to take second on his single. Otherwise, Davis got two soft outs with a groundout and a popout.

“I imagine Royals fans are excited to see Wade Davis on the mound in a Royals uniform again,” Matheny said. “And then you see the ball come out of his hand like it did. It was jumping. … I was excited to see Wade out there today, and then to see that kind of stuff we saw today, I thought was even that much better.”

Check please.

Today’s win served by Wader.#RoyalsST

Barlow ‘absolutely’ ready to be a workhorse
Reliever Scott Barlow, who pitched a scoreless sixth inning with one strikeout on Sunday, focused on getting stronger this offseason to be ready whenever he’s needed out of the bullpen this year. And that figures to be quite a few times, considering he led the Majors in appearances (32) last season.

The right-hander is more than ready for that task.

“Oh, absolutely,” Barlow said. “Going into the offseason, that was my goal, just repeat. Do that again. And working out with my trainer back home, that’s what I was telling him. I just want to pitch in as many games as possible. And he’s like, ‘OK, we’re going to put in some work.’ So he beat me up for sure this offseason.

“That was my goal: to get my mind in the best shape as possible, that way I can get the ball whenever Skip asks.”
