If the Royals decide to trade Wade Davis this off-season, they would seek controllable pitching in return, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.

Though Davis’ name came up routinely in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline, the Royals reportedly had a high asking price and decided to keep him on their roster. The Royals also dangled Davis and Ian Kennedy together in deals, but ultimately nothing got done.

Over 43.1 last season, Davis pitched to a 1.87 ERA and 2.29 FIP.

Here is more from around the American League Central:

  • From Cleveland’s perspective, using pitchers on short rest probably isn’t ideal.

  • The Tigers probably got more than they expected from Matt Boyd throughout the course of last season.

  • Chicago claimed outfielder Rymer Liriano off waivers.

  • Do you remember Minnesota’s 1991 World Series? If not, we can help you with the highlights.

  • Former Royals pitching coach Guy Hansen discussed his coaching tactics and pitching styles in his new book.
