Davis loaded the bases via a hit and two walks but still held the Twins scoreless to earn his 12th save Tuesday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This was Davis's closest shave since he allowed two runs on three hits in a blown save May 15 against Atlanta. Even though he had a three-run lead to work with, Davis didn't pitch to contact -- he picked up consecutive strikeouts before inducing a flyout to escape the inning unscathed. Davis owns a sparkling 1.08 ERA and has saved all but one of his 13 chances.

Davis earned his 11th save with a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the White Sox. He issued a walk but also struck out a batter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 30-year-old was called on for the second straight night, and once again helped secure victory. It was actually Davis' third save in the last four games, and his third straight scoreless outing as well. The veteran closer has experienced only one hiccup in what has otherwise been a stellar season, and is holding opposing batters to a minuscule .154 average over 15.2 innings in 2016.

Davis allowed a hit, but he needed just nine pitches to record his ninth save of the season in the first game of a double header Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander allowed a one-out single to Jackie Bradley Jr., but he threw seven of his nine pitches for strikes, easily working around the hit. It was a nice response after blowing a save in his last outing Sunday. Davis is now 9-for-10 in save opportunities with a 1.32 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 13.2 innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Royals had a 2-0 lead in the ninth, but Davis had an uncharacteristically shaky outing, though the Royals would go on to win the game in 13 innings. Before this outing, he hadn't allowed a single run all year, and he now has eight 1.42 ERA along with the 0.95 WHIP.

Davis worked a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one while not allowing a hit or walk.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis had not pitched in a week so the Royals likely wanted to give him a tune-up given his lengthy absence from game action. The 30-year-old righty maintained his ERA at zero and lowered his WHIP from 0.75 to 0.69 in the Wednesday outing.

Davis worked around a hit with one strikeout in a scoreless inning to earn his eighth save of the season Sunday versus Seattle.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis has been lights out this season, as he has still yet to be scored on in 10 outings and is remains perfect in save opportunities. Davis was projected to be one of fantasy's top relief pitchers this year despite never spending an entire season as a primary closer, and he has lived up to the billing in the early going.

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.
