Cubs activate closer Davis from paternity list

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have activated closer Wade Davis from the paternity list and optioned right-hander Dylan Floro to Triple-A Iowa.

Davis went on the paternity list Monday. The 31-year-old right-hander is 2-0 with a microscopic 0.89 ERA and 12 saves in his first season with Chicago after he was acquired in an offseason trade with Kansas City.

The team announced the moves before Tuesday night's game against Miami.
