Davis struck out one in a perfect ninth inning en route to earning the save Saturday against the Mariners. Davis entered the game with the Rockies up three and successfully closed out the win to earn his 27th save. That was enough to push him ahead of Kenley Jansen as the National League saves leader, and while his ERA is a bit high at 3.72, he has converted seven consecutive save opportunities.
Davis got the save against the Mariners on Friday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to close out Colorado's 10-7 victory. Davis continues to rack up the saves, as this latest conversion leaves him tied with Kenley Jansen atop the National League with 26 on the season. He's had his share of rocky outings this season that have hurt his ratios, but this was his fifth straight scoreless appearance, bringing his ERA down to 3.82 and his WHIP to 1.14 through 37.2 innings.
Davis worked around a hit and a walk to finish a scoreless ninth for his 25th save Wednesday against the Giants. Davis has converted five straight saves since blowing two chances in a row June 15 and June 19. Still, Davis has been much shakier than in previous years. His 4.15 ERA can't all be chalked up to Coors Field. Davis' K/BB is down nearly a full point from his 2016 and 2017 marks, as he has already walked 19 batters and is on pace to walk more than 30 for the first time since moving to the bullpen in 2014.
Davis worked around a hit in a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Monday to earn his 24th save of the season. He leads the National League in saves and ranks third in all of baseball behind Edwin Diaz (32) and Craig Kimbrel (25). Since his back-to-back blown saves in mid-June, Davis has gone 4-for-4 in save opportunities, easing whatever concerns there may have been about his stability in the ninth. He's allowed just one run on three hits in his last five appearances.
Davis picked up the save against the Dodgers on Friday, working around a solo home run to record two strikeouts and close out Colorado's 3-1 victory. It wasn't entirely smooth sailing for Davis, who gave up a solo shot to Justin Turner after being afforded a three-run lead in the ninth inning. However, he was able to bounce back to preserve the victory. Davis' 4.41 ERA isn't at the level of some of the game's other premier closers, but his 23 saves still lead the National League, so his fantasy value hasn't suffered much despite him being subject to the occasional hiccup.
