The Colorado Rockies have agreed a record deal with free-agent closer Wade Davis, the Major League Baseball franchise announced on Friday.

Davis registered a 2.30 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 79/28 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings for the Cubs in 2017 and will open the 2018 campaign as Colorado's new closer.

Before his Chicago stint, he spent four seasons each with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Kansas City Royals, helping the Royals win the 2015 World Series.

Jurgen Klopp says 5-0 Swansea result 'perfect' for Liverpool
That should be enough. "We did better in the second half". "You look afterwards, 5-0, and you think, "easy game". Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Carragher said: "I am a huge fan of his".


That postseason, Davis went a flawless 4/4 on save opportunities, giving up zero earned runs in over 10 innings on his way to claiming the Babe Ruth award, given to the most valuable player in the playoffs. Last season, he had 32 consecutive saves before the Brewers got to him in late September. Shaw and Jake McGee signed three-year, $27 million deals in the offseason.

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.

Davis was arguably the best closer on the market joined by the likes of former teammate Greg Holland who pitched last season with the Rockies. However, the signing of Davis may change that. Both men were members of the Royals' World Series-winning team of 2015. Holland, however, underwent Tommy John surgery near the end of the regular season after compiling 32 saves.
