UPDATES & NEWS
Mike Trout (back) has returned to the Angels lineup on Thursday.
The Angels seem to think Trout is ready to jump back into the lineup after missing three of the last four games. He did pinch-hit in one of the games. Given his talent and level of importance to the team, one would think that it would make sense not to rush him back, so you have to go in with some cautious optimism here. Hopefully he is fine and will be free of any additional injury or setbacks.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
