Davis allowed five runs while recording just five outs in his two appearances since returning from a shoulder injury. That was evidently the last straw for the Rockies, who are finally finished with the man they paid $52 million over the last three seasons. Davis did give the Rockies a decent enough season in 2018, saving 43 games with a respectable 4.13 ERA, but his overall tenure in Colorado includes a 6.49 ERA and an unimpressive combination of a 25.0 percent strikeout rate and an 11.8 percent walk rate. It would be quite a surprise to see a team claim him off waivers.
