Rockies' Wade Davis: Still receiving treatment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Wednesday that 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 Rockies while Davis remains out.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Out with shoulder strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder strain.

Davis was charged with the loss and the blown save after allowing four runs to the Padres on Friday, which is apparently when he sustained the shoulder strain. The severity of the injury remains unclear, though the veteran right-hander should be eligible to be activated Aug. 11. Jairo Diaz and Carlos Estevez are options to fill in at closer for the Rockies.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Blown save against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Rockies' closer -- at least for now.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis earned a save with a perfect ninth inning in Sunday's 5-2 win over Texas.

While he failed to record a strikeout, Davis made quick work of the middle of the Rangers' lineup to secure his second save of the season. The 34-year-old will have to stay consistent if he's going to hold on to the Rockies' shaky closer role.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Earns first save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis allowed a run on one hit and one walk during his lone inning of work against the Rangers on Saturday, but he struck out one and earned his first save of the season.

Davis is coming off the worst season of his career and is widely expected to have a short leash as the team's closer, but he converted his first save opportunity of the year. It wasn't an easy save, however, as he allowed two baserunners before sealing the deal when he struck out Rougned Odor. Davis posted an 8.65 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP in 42.2 innings last season.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Entering season with short leash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will begin the 2020 season as the Rockies' primary closer, but he will likely have a short leash, speculates Patrick Saunders of the Greeley Tribune.

Davis will look to bounce back from the worst season of his career in 2019, when he logged an 8.65 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 42.2 innings and finished with just 15 saves. The veteran right-hander did not allow a single run or hit while striking out three across 3.1 innings this spring. Scott Oberg and Carlos Estevez are the top candidates to replace Davis should he struggle early on in his third campaign in Colorado.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Almost perfect this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis did not allow a run or a hit while issuing one walk and striking out three in 3.1 innings this spring.

He has already been named the closer to open the season, but it's also mildly encouraging that he didn't get shelled in a small sample this spring. He shelved his cutter in favor of working on getting more consistent with his fastball and changeup, saying that the better his fastball is, the better his cutter will be in the regular season. Davis is entering the final year of a three-year, $52 million contract and if he pitches well, the rest of the bullpen fits much more logically, so he should get a fairly long leash. That said, the Rockies do not envision themselves as rebuilding, so signs of a return to his 2019 form (8.65 ERA, 1.88 WHIP) would leave the team scrambling to stop the bleeding.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Named closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will be the Rockies' closer to start the year, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Nearly every dedicated closer is at least a moderately valuable fantasy asset, but Davis has a good case to be the worst bet out there. The 34-year-old deservedly lost his closing job last season as his ERA ballooned to 8.65. There's undoubtedly some bad luck in that figure, but his 5.56 FIP suggests his season was indeed quite poor, as his strikeout rate plummeted to 20.4 percent while his walk rate soared to 14.1 percent. Scott Oberg, who took over the role in the second half before suffering a season-ending injury, will be the primary setup man for now but has a good chance of returning to the ninth inning unless Davis experiences a major turnaround.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Slated to work in seventh or eighth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will most likely be used as a seventh- or eighth-inning reliever, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

After Scott Oberg (blood clot) was placed on the IL on Sunday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reported that Davis would return to the closer role. Davis blew a save chance later that day and apparently manager Bud Black is ready to move on; Black said Monday that he's not ready to anoint a new closer, but he made it clear that he'll give right-handers Jairo Diaz and Carlos Estevez chances to close out games over the remainder of the season. Black then turned to Davis in the eighth inning Monday evening and Davis was rocked for three runs on two hits -- including a homer -- in two-thirds of an inning, lifting his ERA for the season to 7.43.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Back in closer's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will return to the closer's role after Scott Oberg (blood clot) was ruled out for the remainder of the season, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Davis has logged four straight scoreless appearances, with only one of those coming at home. He has a 9.70 ERA at home and a 0.63 ERA on the road, and the Rockies head on a week-long road trip next week, so he is worth adding in most roto formats.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Moves to middle relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will move to a middle-relief role for now, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Coors Field does a number on many pitchers' statlines, but Davis certainly can't blame his home park for the entirety of his 6.82 ERA, which translates to a park-adjusted ERA- of 134 (34 percent worse than league average). His 22.3 percent strikeout rate better suits a middle reliever, while his 13.5 percent walk rate is quite poor. Scott Oberg will handle the ninth inning for now.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Falls apart versus Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (1-5) took the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers after surrendering five runs on four hits and one walk while recording only one out.

Davis entered to start the ninth inning with the game in a scoreless tie, and he delivered his worst performance of the season by giving up a pair of multi-run homers. The veteran right-hander hasn't blown a save since mid-June, but he still has a 9.67 ERA, 12:8 K:BB and three losses in that stretch. The Rockies previously discussed a shakeup for the back end of the bullpen and seem likely to be considering their options once again.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Notches 15th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis allowed one walk and struck out the side in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Nationals.

Davis was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning. He did so in commanding fashion, whiffing three of the four batters he faced to record his 15th save of the campaign. Davis has been an unsteady performer this season, though he has turned in a scoreless outing in eight of last 10 appearances. Even accounting for that stretch, he has a 5.64 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with 32 strikeouts across 30.1 innings.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Posts 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two batters during the ninth inning to record his 14th save in a 10-9 victory against the Reds on Sunday.

The veteran closer was very efficient, shutting down the Reds in 13 pitches. It hasn't been a great season for Davis, but he's been better lately, throwing four straight shutout frames. He is 1-3 and 14-for-16 in save opportunities with a 5.14 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 28 innings during 2019.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Closes out Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn his 13th save of the year in a 3-2 win over the Reds on Friday.

Davis needed only nine pitches to convert the save. The closer has now strung together three consecutive scoreless outings to lower his ERA to 5.33 on the year. He has 27 strikeouts in as many innings. The 33-year-old's hold on the closing job remains tenuous, with Scott Oberg waiting in the wings should Davis begin to falter again.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Notches 12th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 12th save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Dodgers.

He did hit a batter, but otherwise it was a strong response from the veteran closer in the face of very public talk from the Rockies about removing him from ninth-inning duty. Davis still has a 5.76 ERA and 26:16 K:BB through 25 innings, though, and it will take more than one good appearance to build his job security back up.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Team talking about role change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Friday that the club is talking about making changes at the back end of the bullpen, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Davis coughed up four runs in one inning Thursday, leading to his third loss and pushing his ERA to an even 6.00. The veteran's walk rate had been trending in the wrong direction for years, but those control problems have reached an entirely new level this season, a development which Black called "concerning." The Rockies are paying Davis a ton, but at this point, it's tough to justify keeping him in the closer role. Scott Oberg filled in capably earlier in the year when Davis was out with an oblique injury and would presumably step back in if a change were made.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Struggles continue in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (1-3) was saddled with the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, giving up three hits and four earned runs over one inning in Colorado's 12-8 defeat. He struck out none and walked one.

Davis entered with the game tied 8-8 in the ninth inning, but he couldn't preserve the deadlock as he gave up an RBI single to Chris Taylor before Kike Hernandez provided the big blow with a pinch-hit three-run homer. The veteran reliever has struggled mightily since returning from an oblique injury, as he's now given up 12 earned runs over his last 9.1 innings, yielding three homers and walking six batters over that stretch. Manager Bud Black hasn't given an indication that Davis' spot in the ninth inning is in jeopardy yet, but with Scott Oberg dealing to the tune of a 2.04 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP over 39.2 innings, Davis will need to right the ship soon if he wants to maintain his grasp on the closer role.

Rockies' Wade Davis: Nails down 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 11th save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Giants.

It's been a shaky June for the veteran closer -- he now sports an 8.64 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 8.1 innings on the month, having blown two of his six save chances -- but he seems to be righting the ship, reeling off three straight scoreless appearances. If he can stay healthy, Davis still has a reasonable shot at producing his fourth straight 25-save campaign, but anything more than that will require a very big second half.

June 25, 2019 01:20 AM
Rockies' Wade Davis: Bags 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis picked up the save against the Giants on Monday, tossing a scoreless ninth inning to close out Colorado's 2-0 victory. He didn't record a strikeout or a walk.

Davis had seen his ERA balloon from 2.55 to 5.40 over his last four appearances, but he turned in a smooth effort in this contest, needing 12 pitches to dispatch of the Giants in order and pick up his 10th save of the season. He seems locked in as the top ninth-inning option for the time being despite his recent struggles, so hopefully this clean outing is a sign he's getting back to form.
