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.

Pres. Trump Slams FBI Over Use of Unverified 'Dossier' in Russia Probe
"FBI TAINTED." And they utilized this Crooked Hillary heap of waste as the reason for pursuing the Trump Campaign!" he composed. Trump wrote in one of several anti-FBI tweets Saturday.

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.

House of Delegates race
The Virginia State Board of Elections plans to break the tie picking the candidates' names out of a bowl on Wednesday. If Simonds were to win the seat, Republicans would lose majority control of the House of Delegates after 17 years.

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.

Pro-Independence Parties Win Majority in Catalonia Elections, A Blow to Madrid
The centre-right anti-independence party was the night's single biggest victor - taking 37 seats in the region's snap election. The 54-year-old historian wanted Spanish authorities to "sit down to negotiate on a realistic basis".

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.
