Wade Davis Signs With Colorado Rockies

Wade Davis Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

Closer Wade Davis has agreed to a three-year, $52 million deal with the Colorado Rockies, according to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan.

Davis's salary will be among the highest ever paid annually to a relief pitcher and reflects the Rockies' desire to get back to the postseason.

Davis was 4-2 with 32 saves for the Cubs in 2017. There's also a fourth-year vesting option that could elevate his total earnings to $66 million. Davis won a World Series ring with the Royals in 2015 and helped the Cubs to another World Series appearance past year.

Davis will seemingly replace Greg Holland, the man he took over the closer's role from with the Royals in 2015.

She joked later that she was in a room with "water and a tv". "Flight time, 8 hours and 20 minutes". When the plane finally landed- in its original origin, Teigen cracked: 'LAX - LAX flight complete.

Of course, the move means righty Greg Holland will not return to Denver after posting 41 saves in 2017, not a tremendous loss since he exhausted out in the second half in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. Those who had been in the market for Davis were also in the market for Holland so a signing should come together relatively quickly.

The right-handed Davis became a closer for the Royals in 2015 after Holland suffered an arm injury. Holland, however, underwent Tommy John surgery near the end of the regular season after compiling 32 saves.

With Adam Ottavino, Mike Dunn and Chris Rusin, the Rockies could spend up to $45 million on relievers in 2018 - the most expensive bullpen in the National League.
