Former Royals closer Wade Davis off to Colorado Rockies

Wade Davis is expected to close out games for the Colorado Rockies in 2018. More

He has been an All-Star each of the past three seasons - twice in Kansas City and a year ago with the Cubs. He entered the offseason as arguably the top closer on the market and has cashed in on several impressive seasons with a lucrative contract.

Wade Davis has reportedly signed a deal with the Rockies. He was part of the Royals' 2015 World Series-winning team. Despite a rough patch in August, Holland excelled as Colorado's closer, converting 41 of 45 save opportunities and posting a 3.61 ERA while pitching in a hitter-friendly environment.

We are able to do the work we love only because of your faith and support - and we will never forget that or take it for granted. It would definitely be interesting if we were to find out that Apple isn't the only company doing this.

The Rockies have been active this winter upgrading their bullpen. 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.

The Cubs acquired Davis through trade from the Royals last offseason, adding him to replace Aroldis Chapman, who had signed with the Yankees. But his signing does continue a trend of teams paying big bucks for elite relief pitchers. Davis has accomplished this with a lethal three-pitch-mix: a mid 90s fastball, low 90s cutter and one of the hardest curveballs in all of baseball. With Shaw, McGee, and now Davis all set to man the back end of the bullpen, it's also worth noting that guys like Mike Dunn and Chris Rusin should also return in relief roles.

After the Rockies reached the wild-card game in 2017, expectations will be high heading into 2018.
