Wade Davis Agrees To Terms With Rockies

Yahoo Sports is reporting that the contract would be worth 3 years and $52 million, the largest salary per year of any closer in Major League Baseball history. The average salary per season of $17.33 million is the highest ever for a relief pitcher, Passan said. Davis won a World Series ring with the Royals in 2015 and helped the Cubs to another World Series appearance previous year.

Davis, 32, spent last season with the Chicago Cubs and went 4-2, with a 2.30 ERA, 1.142 WHIP, 32 saves and 79 strikeouts in 58 2/3 innings.

There is a fourth-year vesting option that could push the deal to $66 million, according to the report. He saved four more games in the postseason, including all three wins of the Cubs' NL Division Series win over the Nationals and a 2 1/3-inning save in the winner-take-all Game 5. Colorado also re-signed reliever Jake McGee during that time period. The Rockies had been linked to wanting Holland back but it's been no secret that Holland and his agent Scott Boras were seeking a long-term deal hoping to cash in on his success from a year ago.

The right-handed Davis became a closer for the Royals in 2015 after Holland suffered an arm injury. The deal was first reported Friday morning by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports and the Rockies have now made it official. Holland, however, underwent Tommy John surgery near the end of the regular season after compiling 32 saves.
