    • Wade Davis: Declines qualifying offer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Davis officially declined his qualifying offer from the Cubs on Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. By electing to forego the one-year, $17.4 million offer, Davis will become a free agent, though the Cubs will receive draft-pick compensation if he ends up signing elsewhere. The 32-year-old shouldn't have trouble finding a multi-year deal after his stellar 2017 campaign, during which he converted 32 of his 33 save chances while compiling a 2.30 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 58.2 innings.

    • Davis received a qualifying offer from the Cubs on Monday, the Chicago Sun Times reports. Davis is coming off a season where he earned $10.0 million, which makes Monday's offering of $17.4 million from the Cubs pretty enticing. Although, it's possible that Davis could land a more lucrative multi-year deal if he elects to forego the offer and enter free agency. The 32-year-old has 10 days to make his decision.

    • Davis pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Cardinals, allowing a single hit. It wasn't a save situation, but the Cubs didn't mess around with a chance to clinch the NL Central. Davis has been used fairly heavily in recent weeks as the team made its playoff push, so look for him to possibly get some rest over the weekend before firing up for the NLDS.

    • Davis blew his first save of the season in the ninth inning and allowed a walk-off home run in the 10th inning of Saturday's loss to the Brewers. Davis served up a game-tying home run in the ninth inning of Saturday's contest to move to 32-for-33 in save opportunities this season. He still had a chance to pick up the win after the Cubs scored in the top of the 10th inning, but another home run did him in and gave him his first loss since Aug. 3. Davis threw more than one inning for the first time this season in his previous appearance Thursday and did the same Saturday, so manager Joe Maddon may look to avoid using him for at least the Cubs' next game Sunday.

    • Cubs' Wade Davis: Picks up win Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Davis (4-1) picked up the win in Thursday's game against the Brewers. He pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out four. Davis started off ominously, as he hit the first batter he faced and then allowed a single to the next hitter, which loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning with the game tied 3-3, but he struck out Domingo Santana and got Orlando Arcia to ground out to wiggle out of trouble. He then struck out the side in the 10th to close out the game. This was just the second time all season that Davis went more than one inning, though both of those outings have come in the past week as the Cubs fight for a playoff spot. It's unclear if Davis will be available Friday, but with the Cubs looking to stamp their postseason ticket, more outings like this are possible for the closer.
