Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six batters over seven innings against the Orioles on Sunday.
Tanaka suffered just his second loss of the season on Sunday after tying a season-high with three runs allowed. Despite his mediocre performance, Tanaka is still sitting 11-2 with a 2.11 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through 15 starts, while holding down a ridiculous 119:17 K:BB rate. The Yankee rookie will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Red Sox on Saturday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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
