UPDATES & NEWS
Collin Cowgill (nose) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Cowgill took a pitch to the face during Saturday's game and ended up with a broken nose. He'll need surgery to repair that and he also suffered a small fracture in his right thumb from trying to shield his face. He'll hit the DL on Sunday (out 4-to-5 weeks) so the team has a roster spot open for an extra outfielder. Grant Green has received the call again.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
