Davis tossed a perfect inning to earn his seventh save of the season Friday versus the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis has been excellent to begin the season, as he has still not allowed an earned run and lowered his WHIP to 0.78 with the clean outing. He is an elite end-game option in all fantasy formats and should be an expected to rack up saves with regularity.

Davis notched his fourth save of the season Thursday, getting through .2 innings on just eight pitches to close out the Astros.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis returned to his shutdown form Thursday, inducing groundball outs to both batters he faced to lock down another save. The quick and painless outing was a nice bounce back for Davis after an uncharacteristically laborious inning Tuesday in which he walked two batters en route to a 33 pitch inning. Davis has as high of job security as any closer in the game at the moment and he should continue to see plenty of save opportunities moving forward.

Davis picked up his third save Tuesday over the Astros as he worked around two walks and struck out a pair.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis didn't allow a hit and induced a ridiculous six swinging strikes on his 33 pitches. He has yet to give up a run, but the trouble he worked himself into here could leave him unavailable for Wednesday's game. If that's the case, Joakim Soria or Kelvin Herrera could be called upon for the save.

Davis (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th inning to earn the win Sunday against the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With the Royals trailing by two runs in the ninth inning, it looked as if Davis would have the day off. However, the Royals rallied late, and he entered a tie game in the 10th before the offense earned him the win in the bottom of the frame. He now has a win to go with a pair of saves in the early going the season.

The 30-year-old took care of business after the Royals scored the go-ahead runs in the bottom of the eighth.

The eight-year veteran has also struck out four over two scoreless innings of work.

Davis navigated around a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth to earn his first save of the season Sunday against the Mets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The tension was high as the New York bullpen allowed three runs in the eighth before Davis put men on base in the ninth, but he fanned Yoenis Cespedes to end the danger. Davis is in for a big season as the full-time closer for the Royals, and he should typically be expected to finish off opponents with a little more ease.

Davis has allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight in nine innings this spring.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander retired the side on nine pitches in his most recent outing, which was nice to see after he gave up a solo homer to the Padres' Derek Norris in his March 28 appearance. Davis has allowed three home runs combined over the last two seasons. After a dominant postseason run that culminated in Davis recording the final out of the World Series, the 30-year-old is locked in as the closer in Kansas City, and should be viewed as one of the top closer options in baseball heading into 2016.
