Davis got a one-out save against the Padres on Monday, working around a walk to get the final out via strikeout in the Rockies' 5-2 victory. Davis finally picked up his first save of the season after coming into the game with a runner aboard, walking Luis Urias before striking out Ian Kinsler to seal the victory. It took Davis longer than expected to get this first save, but that can be attributed to a lack of opportunities on a Rockies team that has struggled out of the gate. He remains the top option for the closer role in the Colorado bullpen.
Davis (1-0) got the win against the Rays on Wednesday, giving up one hit in 1.1 innings, striking out two and walking one in Colorado's 1-0 victory in extra innings. Davis allowed a couple of baserunners, but he kept the Rays off the scoreboard and was eventually rewarded with his first win of the season thanks to a game-winning home run from Chris Iannetta. It was only the second appearance of the season for the right-hander, who remains the top option at closer for the Rockies, and should start to see more save opportunities as the season progresses.
Davis has given up one earned run over five innings of work in Cactus League play this spring, striking out five and walking one in his five appearances. Davis had a National League-high 43 saves last season and he's locked in as the Rockies' ninth-inning man again ahead of the start of the regular season. His 4.13 ERA from last year thanks to a handful of rough outings wasn't spectacular, but he did have a solid 1.06 WHIP and should be a reliable source of saves once again, even if he's not providing the top-tier ratios of other closer options.
Davis earned the save in Thursday's victory over the Phillies, allowing one hit and striking out two in a scoreless ninth frame. Davis allowed the first batter of the inning to reach on a single, but he retired the next three batters in order with two strikeouts. His ERA still sits at an unimpressive 4.20 on the season, but he owns a 1.07 WHIP with 76 strikeouts over 64.1 innings to go along with 42 saves.
Davis got the save against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner over a scoreless ninth inning to close out Colorado's 2-0 victory. It the 41st save of the year for Davis, who has settled down in recent appearances after a string of rough outings had pushed his ERA up over 5.00. That's now down to 4.26 following this outing, to go along with a 1.07 WHIP and 74 strikeouts over 63.1 innings.
