Royals closer Wade Davis returns to Kansas City for MRI

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Kansas City Royals closer Wade Davis headed back to Kansas City on Saturday night for an MRI on his right arm.

Davis spent time on the 15-day disabled list earlier this month with a strain in his forearm.

In his last appearance Wednesday, Wade allowed four of the first five Los Angeles Angels hitters he faced to reach. He issued three walks for the first time as a reliever and threw his first bases-loaded walk since Sept. 7, 2013.

Davis has a 1.60 ERA with 21 saves in 23 chances in 35 appearances this season. His last save was July 22 against Texas.
