  • Former Royals closer Wade Davis off to Colorado Rockies

FanRag's Jon Heyman reports that the three-time All-Star closer has signed a three-year, $52 million deal with the Colorado Rockies.

The Rockies are bringing back lefty Jake McGee (3 years, $27 million), and signed former Cleveland Indians right-hand set-up man Bryan Shaw (3 years, $27 million) earlier this month.

Friday's agreement totals $52m over three years and reportedly includes a fourth-year vesting option at $14m.

Both Powerball and Mega Millions now boast jackpots above $300 million, giving gamblers two chances to hit it big this weekend. The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $306 million, the Colorado Lottery's website shows.

Davis, 32, was 4-2 with 32 saves in 33 opportunities and a 2.30 ERA for the Chicago Cubs last season.

Davis joins a Rockies bullpen that is now, in a word, stacked. The Rockies now have a comparable one.

With the addition of Davis, the Rockies have guaranteed $106 million on bullpen pitchers this offseason. He was used as a starter until being transitioned to the bullpen in 2012.

This wasn't a Hillary hit piece either, for what it's worth! "We made silly new years resolutions for a bunch of politicians". Carter seemed to take the ridicule in stride.

If Davis' contract from the Rockies seems like a lot, that's because it is.

The Cubs acquired Davis through trade from the Royals last offseason, adding him to replace Aroldis Chapman, who had signed with the Yankees.

Holland made $15 million this year, but he did not exercise the $15 million player option after the 2017 season. Morrow could be the Cubs' closer in 2018.

The clashes came amid debate over the removal of statues and memorials commemorating the Confederacy across the country. The group helped organise participants in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August.

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.
