Wade Davis, Kansas City Royals
Davis is the only big name relief pitcher on our list, and he quite frankly barely makes it. The right-hander has a 3.52 ERA in his last nine appearances, which is very un-Davis like. For the season, Davis possesses a 0.96 ERA.
His WHIP and K/9, however, help him land on our list. Davis has a 0.65 WHIP and 10.57 K/9 since the All-Star break. He also has four holds.
Despite not getting save opportunities, Davis is a great option for any fantasy owner. He is owned in 60 percent of ESPN leagues, which is by far the highest owned rate of all five of these pitchers.
