Wade Davis

What can be said about Wade Davis that has not already been said about the Kansas City Royals setup man extraordinaire? Considered a minor part of the trade that brought James Shields over to Kansas City, Davis has transformed into a strike throwing cyborg whose very presence leaves the opposition without hope of breaking through.

In what could be a truly historic season, Davis has been the best pitcher in baseball. He has allowed only two runs in his 39 innings of work, and one of those runs should not have scored. His 0.46 ERA and 0.872 WHiP are truly remarkable, as Davis has established himself as one of the best relievers in the game.

Davis has truly found a place in the Royals bullpen. He has even proven that he can be a future closer, stepping in admirably when Greg Holland has been injured or unavailable. He is a perfect 12 for 12 in his career in save opportunities, including the nine saves he has accumulated this season.

The Kansas City Royals bullpen has been a key weapon, and Wade Davis has been a key part of why. This All-Star appearance is certainly deserved.
