The bumps and bruises just keep coming for the Kansas City Royals.
On Tuesday, the defending World Series champions placed closer Wade Davis on the 15-day disabled list because of a forearm strain.
Davis, 30, has a 1.23 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, 19 saves and 28 strikeouts in 30 appearances (29 1/3 innings) this season.
The Royals, who lost third baseman Mike Moustakas for the season with a torn ACL in late May, recently welcomed back left fielder Alex Gordon from a month-long absence because of a broken wrist. In addition, center field Lorenzo Cain is on the DL with a hamstring injury and right-hander Yordano Ventura sprained an ankle in his most recent start.
The two-time defending AL champions are 43-39 and seven games behind the first-place Cleveland Indians in the AL Central.
