While Fangraphs still shows Kyle Davies as a replacement level pitcher, and some believe he may be a future fifteen game winner, it seems that many Royals fans have simply had enough Hiram for one season. The Royals owe Kyle $3.2 million this year, or approximately $1.4 million the remainder of the season. When will they cut ties with him?
Keep in mind that the Royals will sit Danny Duffy once he reaches his "max innings limit", and that Bruce Chen and/or Jeff Francis may be dealt in the next few weeks. Is it imperative we keep Davies around simply for the depth? Or can we make do with guys like Everett Teaford, Vin Mazzarro and Sean O'Sullivan (is he coming back this year?) filling in?
When does the madness end?
