The Colorado Rockies and relief pitcher Wade Davis have agreed to a deal, per Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. The deal is for three seasons and worth a total of $52 million.
Davis, 32, put together another remarkable season last year for the Chicago Cubs. Before a disastrous second half of the season, Davis had a 1.46 ERA in 27 innings before the all-star break. In his third consecutive all-star season, Davis collected 32 saves in his first and only season in a Cubs' uniform.
Davis will join an already deep bullpen in Colorado that features top relievers Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee. Not only does the Rockies' bullpen include some of the best relievers in the game, the organization has over $106 million committed to relievers.
Davis will likely be the closer next season for the Rockies but there is a chance there may be some competition in spring training. Even though the Rockies made the playoffs as a wild-card team last season, they suddenly have become stronger and look to compete with the World Series runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West Division.
