The well documented saga of ups and downs for Kyle Davies just went south again. The Royals optioned the struggling righty to AAA Omaha today and recalled RHP Jeff Fulchino.
Fulchino will shift to the bullpen, creating an opening in the starting rotation. It is possible Josh Newman will fill this role, though the Royals may instead opt to shorten the rotation and recall Davies in 10 days.
Fulchino is expected to take some innings off the rest of the 'pen with Mahay misssing time with his foot injury.
God knows the relievers need it. R. Ramirez has earned his pay this season with almost 60 appearances and keeping Peralta off the bump can't be a bad thing right now.
