Wade Davis To The Mile High City
The former World Series champion closer Wade Davis, who's been one of the game's best relievers the past few years is off the free agent market. Davis recently signed a 3 year $52 million deal with a vesting option for 2021. The Rockies got one of the best pitchers in the game, there's no two ways about it. Last season Davis racked up 32 saves for the NL Central champion Cubs, including a 31 straight save streak to start his stint with the Cubs. Davis made a name for himself in Kansas City as he went from being the elite set-up man for Greg Holland, to the 2015 World Champion Royals, with which he closed out the final game of the 2015 World Series against the Mets. After the signing of Davis it looks as if the Rockies are out on their closer from last year Greg Holland who was solid, but not as talented as former teammate Wade Davis. His impeccable control of his fastball and his devastating curve-ball make him one of the toughest pitchers to hit against, as shown by MLB Network ranking him the number one reliever in the game after the 2015 season. The Rockies will look to make a strong bullpen for 2018 in an effort to return to the postseason and make it past the Wild Card round.
