Davies Takes the Mound

Kyle Davies was officially recalled from Omaha Saturday and makes his first start of the season for the club tonight facing Cleveland’s C.C. Sabathia (3-6, 4.74 ERA).

To make room for Davies on the roster, we designated catcher Brayan Pena for assignment. Pena was a waiver claim Friday from the Atlanta Braves. We now have 10 days to place him on waivers, trade him or release him.

Back to Davies…the right-hander posted a 6-2 mark with a 2.06 ERA (Pacific Coast League-leading) in 10 starts for the O-Royals. He allowed just 13 earned runs in 56.2 innings pitched, giving up 47 hits, walking 20 and striking out 37. In his most recent start for the Triple-A team, he allowed just one run on five hits in seven innings to lead Omaha to a 4-1 victory over Round Rock on Monday. Omaha was 8-2 in his 10 starts.
