The Royals beat the Orioles 4-2 on Friday night, but after closing out the win for his league-leading seventh save, Wade Davis did not exactly look like a happy camper.
Davis appears to glare at catcher Salvador Perez before spitting in his direction, while Kendrys Morales puts an arm on him. Is it a minor dispute? Is it absolutely nothing?
This is a clear "Let it go bro. We good" pat https://t.co/2XiefK73zz— Carrington Harrison (@cdotharrison) April 23, 2016
Here it is with only the stadium audio.
Here is the park only audio from the Sal Perez / Wade Davis fight thing whatever. Can't tell what was said. pic.twitter.com/fN4NBwCg5a— Shaun Newkirk (@Shauncore) April 23, 2016
It ALMOST sounds like Sal says "you mad at me?"— Shaun Newkirk (@Shauncore) April 23, 2016
After the game, Salvy denied anything was wrong.
Were their words between Wade Davis and Sal Perez after #Royals W? "I don't know what you're are talking about," Perez said.— Blair Kerkhoff (@BlairKerkhoff) April 23, 2016
Wade Davis just texted me and said of Sal, "Yeah, we are great" when I asked if everything was OK between them. #Royals— Jeffrey Flanagan (@FlannyMLB) April 23, 2016
A #Royals official said he saw Davis and Perez walking out of clubhouse together tonight.— Blair Kerkhoff (@BlairKerkhoff) April 23, 2016
From this angle, it looks like nothing.
The Royals are known for their great clubhouse chemistry, so even if this is something, you would think they could see past it and resolve it for the greater good of the team.
Saturday update: Things are all good.
