Davies was arrested day before release

This week hasn't been the best for pitcher Kyle Davies, and that's an understatement. He was released by the Royals Wednesday after a pretty lousy season on the hill. Thursday night, it was discovered that Davies had actually been arrested the day before on charges of disorderly intoxication, a misdemeanor, in the Tampa area -- where the Royals were playing the Rays.

“I embarrassed myself and my family,” Davies said (Kansas City Star). “I made a foolish mistake. I’ll learn from it, and I’ll get past it.”

The Royals likely wouldn't have released Davies had they known of the arrest, as doing so immediately after an arrest would have prompted quick action from the MLB Players Association, and Royals general manager Dayton Moore said as much.

“We knew nothing about the arrest,” Moore said (KC Star). “I only learned about it (Thursday) afternoon.”

Davies, 27, was 1-9 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in 13 starts for the Royals before his release. He's presently on waivers. If he clears waivers, the Royals can then either trade him, demote him to the minors or outright release him, at which point he'd become a free agent. An added issue is that Davies is injured and likely out until September anyway, so there's no way a team is trading for him. His status will be determined based upon whether the Royals want to put him in Triple-A or just let him walk.

How messed up is that? If I a guy pitches poorly, you can dump him. I am fine with that. But if a guy gets arrested the union feels the need to protest and force a team to keep him or pay him? Man, I hate unions.
