Colorado Rockies reportedly sign Wade Davis to three-year deal

Wade Davis Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

A native of Lake Wales, FL, Davis posted a 4-2 mark with the Chicago Cubs last season, recording 32 saves. His career reversed fortunes in Kansas City, where he converted from a starter to reliever in 2014.

A Major League Baseball source confirmed the signing with Denver7.

It remains to be seen if the Rockies feel like Davis will be the closer or if they will also try and bring back Holland, who is a free agent.

That all being said, while Davis could be very much touch-and-go in Colorado, he still gives the Rockies the best chance at getting back to the playoffs and building upon being the second NL Wild Card team last season. Keep in mind GM Jeff Bridich already signed right-hander Bryan Shaw to a three-year, $27m contract, and southpaw Jake McGee signed a deal for the same length and money, plus a $9m option. There's also a fourth-year vesting option that could elevate his total earnings to $66 million.

It was in the 89th minute when, after a corner, former Tottenham winger Townsend crossed to James Tomkins , who under too little pressure at the back post headed in.

According to multiple reports, Davis' deal is for three years and worth $52 million, making it the highest per-year salary ever for a reliever.

The Colorado Rockies hit the jackpot landing the three-time MLB All-Star, one with postseason experience and success. Davis won a World Series ring with the Royals in 2015 and helped the Cubs to another World Series appearance past year.

The deal is expected to be officially announced later Friday.
