Colorado Rockies reportedly sign Wade Davis to three-year deal

Colorado Rockies reportedly sign Wade Davis to three-year deal

Davis has also been an all-star in each of the past three seasons.

Davis, one of Colorado's primary targets this offseason, has signed a three-year deal that will pay the right-hander an average of $17.33million per year - a record for a reliever. The Davis deal includes a fourth-year option that could push the deal upwards of $60 million.

Over nine Major League Baseball seasons, primarily with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Kansas City Royals, he has 79 saves.

The Washington Times says its sources who are familiar with investigations being pursued by members of both the U.S. Her campaign hired a law firm which in turn hired Fusion GPS to find opposition research on Trump.

At that point, the Rockies also reportedly were close to re-signing Holland, a free agent who had 41 saves for them in a bounce-back 2017 season following Tommy John surgery. Colorado's closer last season was Greg Holland, who teamed up with Davis in Kansas City's bullpen from 2013 to 2015.

Davis is in a fantastic situation, with the Rockies bullpen already loaded.

The Cubs acquired Davis through trade from the Royals last offseason, adding him to replace Aroldis Chapman, who had signed with the Yankees. The Rockies' bullpen is now stacked beyond belief and despite his age and small step back in 2017, Davis should do fine so long as he can get his groundball rate back to where it should be. Holland is now the top relief pitcher available and should ultimately garner a contract worth nearly as much as the one Davis got. Colorado has invested a bunch of money in its bullpen this winter, re-signing Jake McGee for $27 million, bringing aboard Bryan Shaw for $27 million, and now reeling in Davis for a whopping $52 million. Morrow could be the Cubs' closer in 2018.
