The Kansas City Royals placed Wade Davis on the 15-day disabled list today with a strained right forearm.

Not something the Royals needed, even if they do have Kelvin Herrera to take his place. Davis has been fantastic this year, saving 19 games and posting a 1.23 ERA in 30 games. The Royals still have the best bullpen in the American League, at least as far as ERA goes. They’re in the top 2-3 in a lot of other categories as well. But losing Davis will certainly be a blow.
