      Royals' Wade Davis: Signs minor-league deal

      Wade Davis signed a minor-league contract with the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.Davis was let go by the Rockies in September of 2020 after a sharp decline in production over the past several seasons. The veteran righty posted a 9.77 ERA and 1.96 WHIP over the past two seasons but will attempt to bounce back with his former team in 2021. Davis should compete for a major-league roster spot during spring training.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Designated for assignment

      Wade Davis was designated for assignment by the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.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.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Likely bound for middle relief

      Manager Bud Black said he expects to use Wade Davis (shoulder) as a middle reliever initially following the 35-year-old's reinstatement from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.Black didn't specify whether Davis would merely make an appearance or two in middle relief before getting work in higher-leverage spots, but with only two weeks left in the regular season, the veteran likely wouldn't have enough time to re-establish himself as Colorado's closer anyway. Even before he was moved to the IL on Aug. 2 with a right shoulder strain, Davis had a tenuous grasp on the closing gig after a disastrous 2019 campaign in which he posted an 8.65 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 50 appearances. Daniel Bard has gone a perfect 6-for-6 in save chances while bringing stability to the back end of the Colorado bullpen, so he'll likely continue to garner most of the closing opportunities even with Davis back in the fold.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Returns from injured list

      Wade Davis (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday.Davis was the Colorado Rockies' closer when he hit the injured list in early August with a strained right shoulder, though he didn't look particularly good, allowing five runs while striking out one and walking three over just 2.2 innings of work. Given that he's coming off a 2019 campaign in which he posted an 8.65 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP, it's quite possible he'll be unable to reclaim his role, especially considering that Daniel Bard has converted all six of his save opportunities this year.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Could return soon

      Manager Bud Black said Saturday that the team is having discussions about activating Wade Davis (shoulder) to provide an extra bullpen arm, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.Davis has been sidelined since the beginning of August with a right shoulder strain, but it appears as though he could return to action prior to the end of the regular season. If he returns, it's unclear whether he'll reclaim the closing duties since Daniel Bard has converted on all six of his save chances this season.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Tosses bullpen Wednesday

      Wade Davis (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.This is an encouraging step for Davis, who has been sidelined all month with a right shoulder strain. An updated timetable for the right-hander's return should come into focus once he's further along in his throwing program. In the meantime, Daniel Bard and Carlos Estevez are Colorado's top options for saves.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Still receiving treatment

      Manager Bud Black said Wednesday that Wade Davis (shoulder) is still receiving treatment and hasn't resumed throwing, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.Davis has been sidelined since Friday with a right shoulder strain, but Black's update signals that he may not return from the injured list when he's first eligible. The team could get a better idea of when the right-hander could return to game action once he begins throwing again. Jairo Diaz and Carlos Estevez should continue to handle ninth-inning duties for the Colorado Rockies while Davis remains out.

Jairo Diaz and Carlos Estevez are options to fill in at closer for the Colorado Rockies.

      Rockies' Wade Davis: Blown save against Padres

      Wade Davis (0-1) was tagged with the loss and a blown save Friday against the Padres. He gave up four earned runs on two hits -- both home runs -- and two walks across two-thirds of an inning.Davis gave up homers to Fernando Tatis and Tommy Pham, and his struggles allowed the Padres to mount the comeback in the top of the ninth. Davis has now allowed five earned runs across 2.2 innings, but he notched the save in both of his previous two appearances so this woeful performances shouldn't change his status as the Colorado Rockies' closer -- at least for now.
