Yankees designated RHP Kyle Davies for assignment.

Davies' return to the majors was a brief one, as Davies tossed 2 1/3 scoreless relief frames in his one day with the big club. Joel De La Cruz has taken Davies' spot on the roster.
Apr 13 - 4:58 PM

Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Kyle Davies from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 31-year-old right-hander is being called upon to deepen a bullpen that has been taxed in recent days, and his ability to work multiple innings could be useful. He'll work in a long relief role while with the Yankees.
Apr 12 - 4:30 PM

Yankees signed RHP Kyle Davies to a minor league contract.

Davies hasn't appeared in the major leagues since 2011, when he posted a 6.75 ERA in 13 starts for the Royals. The 31-year-old right-hander has been bothered by shoulder issues for the past couple of seasons. An interesting piece of trivia -- especially with him joining the Yankees -- is that Davies gave up Alex Rodriguez's 500th home run.
Feb 9 - 10:49 AM

Indians signed RHP Kyle Davies to a minor league contract.

The deal does not include an invitation to spring training. Davies, 30, made 12 starts in the Twins' minor league system last season while recovering from shoulder surgery. He'll function as organizational depth for Cleveland.

Twins signed RHP Kyle Davies to a minor league contract.

The deal does not include an invite to major league spring training. Davies, 29, had an ugly 6.75 ERA over 13 start with the Royals last season before finishing the year with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate. He'll function as organizational pitching depth.

Blue Jays signed RHP Kyle Davies to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old former prospect was released by Kansas City earlier this month after going 29-44 with an ugly 5.34 ERA over 99 starts. Davies has a 6.75 ERA over 13 starts this season. He was arrested for disorderly intoxication in the Tampa area a few weeks back. Davies won't have any fantasy impact this season.

Kyle Davies was arrested for disorderly intoxication in the Tampa area this week, one day before his release.

The Royals cut ties with Davies on Wednesday, mostly because of his continued failures in the big leagues. But there's little doubt now that the arrest also played a factor. The 27-year-old former prospect is seeking a spot in another organization and seems likely to find an opportunity somewhere. Of course, this won't help.

Royals released RHP Kyle Davies.

Davies was one of GM Dayton Moore's first additions back in June of 2007, but the 27-year-old right-hander went 29-44 with an ugly 5.34 ERA over 99 starts during his time with Kansas City. He was recently placed on the disabled list for the second time this season due to a right shoulder impingement. The Royals will be responsible for the remainder of his $3.2 million salary for this season.

The Royals have requested release waivers for right-hander Kyle Davies.

He will be cleared to make room for catcher Salvador Perez on the 40-man roster. And really, it's about time. Davies has a 6.75 ERA over 13 starts and was recently placed on the disabled list for the second time this season with a right shoulder impingement.

Kyle Davies (shoulder) threw Monday for the second time since being placed on the disabled list.

Davies was placed on the disabled list last month with a right shoulder impingement. The 27-year-old missed 6 1/2 weeks with a similar problem earlier this season. There is no current timetable for his return, though he is hardly missed in fantasy leagues right now.

Royals placed RHP Kyle Davies on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement.

Davies first began experiencing discomfort in his throwing shoulder during a start last week against the Red Sox and had to be scratched from his scheduled Sunday outing against the Indians. The 27-year-old right-hander is 1-9 this year with a 6.75 ERA and 1.79 WHIP through 13 starts.

Kyle Davies was scratched from his scheduled Sunday start due to a sore throwing shoulder.

Danny Duffy drew the nod instead, throwing five-plus innings as the Royals topped the Indians. Davies is hoping to return to the mound later this week, but the Kansas City medical staff may play it safe. "I want to pitch," Davies told reporters on Sunday afternoon. "No question about it. But the last thing I want to do is go out there in the first inning, not be able to command the ball, have my shoulder start bugging me and have to come out of the game."
Mon, Aug 1, 2011 10:29:00 AM

Kyle Davies delivered six innings of one-run ball Monday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.

He struck out six and walked one, possibly saving his job. Davies entered the game having lost eight consecutive starts. He's still 1-9 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.79 WHIP on the year. The 27-year-old right-hander obviously doesn't come as a recommended option in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 02:03:00 AM

Kyle Davies lost yet again on Monday, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings of Kansas City's 5-2 setback against the White Sox.

He did manage to record a season-high nine strikeouts, but it's pretty clear the Royals are going to have to cut Davies loose sooner rather than later, as his ERA and WHIP now rest at 7.32 and 1.88, respectively, through his first 55 1/3 innings of work.
