TORONTO (AP) The Kansas City Royals have placed closer Wade Davis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm.

Kansas City called up right-hander Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Omaha.

Davis is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA and 19 saves in 30 games. He is the third Royals All-Star from 2015 on the disabled list, joining third baseman Mike Moustakas (right knee) and outfielder Lorenzo Cain (left hamstring).

Pounders was 4-1 with a 2.80 ERA in 19 games at Omaha. To make room for Pounders on the roster, Kansas City designated minor league left-hander Tyler Olson for assignment.

Manager Ned Yost said right-hander Yordano Ventura, who left Sunday's start in the third inning after he sprained his right ankle running the bases, will throw a side session Wednesday. Ventura remains on track to start Friday against Seattle.
