It was tempting to place Wade Davis on this list ahead of his teammate, Greg Holland, but Davis has returned to his setup man role, so Holland makes the cut despite some rough outings in the last week.

Over his last three outings, Holland has allowed a run, walked five batters and blown a save, but the Royals still won all three of those games.

And despite the recent cold streak, likely to due to the fact he just returned from the disabled list, Holland is still 7-for-8 in save chances. He is also 1-0 with a 0.90 ERA, 1.00 WHIP in 10 innings.

Owners would just like him to improve his strikeouts-to-walks ratio. He has six of each through May 14.
