A.J. Burnett (groin) will make his scheduled start on Wednesday.
Burnett has apparently tested his groin enough that he and the team have declared him ready to go for his start Wednesday. He left his Friday start after just 4.1 innings innings of mediocrity, so he'll be looking for a big rebound. A tough match-up against the Braves should prove to be a good test.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Wade Davis will take over as the Royals' closer with Greg Holland on the 15-day disabled list.
Davis is instantly vaulted into top-5 closer status while he is closing, and has just as much value as Holland would have in the ninth inning. Davis is downright dominant, and could have the job for quite a while, as although the severity of Greg Holland's pectoral strain is unknown, Holland is expected to be out for a significant chunk of time. Davis should obviously now be owned in all leagues, and the biggest question about the job for now is whether Davis will hold onto the gig once Holland returns. Analysis: Ben Diamond
