Cubs' Zach Davies: Outduels Carlos Martinez on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (4-3) picked up the win over the Cardinals on Sunday after pitching 6.2 shutout innings and allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out six.

Davies was dominant yet again as he led the Cubs to a series sweep over the Cardinals. He allowed his first baserunner after retiring the first 13 batters and eventually saw his day come to a close in the sixth once the Cardinals got two men on base. The 28-year-old had a 9.47 ERA over five starts in April but since owns a 1.86 ERA and 29:18 K:BB over 48.1 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling in an expected home start against the Marlins during the week.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Blanks Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (3-3) won Tuesday's 7-1 victory over San Diego, allowing no runs on a hit and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings.

Pitching against his former team, Davies recorded more strikeouts than baserunners allowed for the first time this season. He's pitched extremely well of late with a 2.18 ERA over his last eight starts. He's allowed one run or less in five of those eight starts.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Takes loss against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (2-3) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Giants after allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while fanning four across 4.1 innings.

The loss ended a streak of six straight outings in which Davies allowed three or fewer runs, and he also failed to complete at least five innings for the first time since May 1. His next scheduled start is set for next week on the road against the Padres.

Cubs' Zach Davies: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Cubs after giving up one run on two hits and two walks while fanning three across five innings.

Davies ended just three outs away from what would've been his second quality start of the campaign, but he has pitched six or more innings just once all year long, so he should not be expected to pitch too deep into games. The right-hander has been impressive of late, though, allowing one or fewer runs in five of his last six outings and posting a 1.74 ERA in that stretch. His next start is scheduled for next week on the road against the Giants.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Five shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies took a no-decision Sunday against St. Louis, pitching five innings and allowing no runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in a 2-1 win.

Davies labored a bit by surrendering multiple base runners in three different innings but was able to prevent the big blow and keep the Cardinals off the board. The righty needed 71 pitches to get through five innings and most likely had at least one more inning in him, but manager David Ross opted to pinch hit for Davies in the top of the sixth, ending his night. After a rough April, Davies has been much better in May, allowing five runs across five starts.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Allows three runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies allowed three runs across five innings and did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's win over the Nationals. He gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out one.

Davies turned in a so-so performance, as he wasn't able to miss a ton of Washington bats, which has been a theme this season. The righty now has just 23 strikeouts in 40.1 innings pitched to go along with a 5.58 ERA. Those numbers aren't going to grab the attention of fantasy managers, and they're a ways off from the 2.73 ERA and 8.2 K/9 Davies posted for San Diego last season. He'll look for better results and a return to the win column Sunday against the Cardinals.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Allows one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies allowed a run on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings versus Cleveland on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

The only run against Davies came in the sixth inning on an Amed Rosario RBI double. The 28-year-old Davies had an inconsistent start to the season, but he's allowed just three runs (two earned) in 16.1 innings across his last three starts. The right-hander has a 5.60 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 22:21 K:BB in 35.1 innings overall. He's projected to face Washington next week.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Sharp against Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (2-2) allowed five hits and one walk while striking out one in seven scoreless innings to earn the win against the Pirates on Friday.

Davies put together his first scoreless outing as a Cub on Friday, and he picked up his first win since his season debut April 4. Even though the right-hander only struck out one batter against the Pirates, he's now allowed just two runs (one earned) in 11 innings across his last two starts. Davies tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road Wednesday against Cleveland.

Cubs' Zach Davies: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Reds. He gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while fanning three across four innings.

Davies has not pitched more than four innings in any of his previous five appearances, and in fact, this was just the first time he allowed fewer than two runs in any of his outings. He has been struggling of late with a 17:18 K:BB and a 8.22 ERA through 23 innings.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Gets hit hard in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies allowed five runs on six hits across 3.2 innings and did not factor into the decision Monday against Atlanta. He walked four and struck out four.

Davies probably deserved his third loss of the season, but Atlanta starter Charlie Morton also allowed five runs, taking Davies off the hook. Other than not taking the loss, it was otherwise another poor performance for the righty, who has an abysmal 9.47 ERA after five starts. It's a far cry from the 2.73 ERA Davies posted in 2020, and considering he's part of the return Chicago received for Yu Darvish, he'll need to pitch a lot better to endear himself to Cubs fans and fantasy managers. He'll look to turn things around in his next outing, which is scheduled for Saturday against the Reds.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Looks OK in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies allowed two earned runs on five hits across across four innings and did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's 16-4 win over the Mets. He walked two and struck out two.

Davies got more than enough run support, but he couldn't last five innings to qualify for the win. The righty continued a trend of not going very deep into games, as he's now pitched four innings or fewer in three straight starts. Davies is 0-2 during the stretch, and he has an unsightly 8.80 ERA for the season. He'll look to pitch a little better in his next scheduled outing Monday against Atlanta.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Charged with second straight loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (1-2) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out one in four innings as he was charged with the loss Friday against Atlanta.

Davies was sharp in his Cubs debut, but he's struggled in each of his last two starts. He was able to limit his run production slightly better than he did in his last outing, but he still allowed 10 baserunners prior to his removal. Through his first three starts, Davies has posted a 10.32 ERA and 2.21 WHIP in 11.1 innings. The right-hander will attempt to turn things around at home against the Mets on Wednesday.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Struggles against Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (1-1) allowed seven runs on five hits and three walks while fanning two across 1.2 innings Saturday against the Pirates. He was tagged with the loss.

Davies pitched 5.2 innings in his Cubs debut and earned a win against the Pirates, but he was roughed up by the same Pittsburgh team he dominated one week ago -- he couldn't even get out of the second inning after allowing all seven of his runs during the second frame. Davies will try to put this outing behind him quickly in his next start scheduled April 16 at home against the Braves.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Earns win in Cubs debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies (1-0) allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Pirates.

Davies was sharp in his Cubs debut facing a weak Pirates lineup. He cruised through five scoreless innings before allowing a two-run home run to Collin Moran in the sixth inning. The 28-year-old provides consistent quality starts despite not having high strikeout totals. The Cubs will rely heavily on him this year after parting ways with Jon Lester and Jose Quintana in the offseason.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Sharp in final tune-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies allowed one run on two hits and two walks across 3.1 innings in Monday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two.

Davies finishes spring training with a 1.08 ERA, and the righty looks ready to contribute for the Cubs and fantasy mangers. While Davies doesn't rack up strikeouts, he can still be an effective starter, which he proved with his 2.73 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 12 starts for the Padres last season. Davies is expected to start the year as Chicago's No. 3 starter behind Kyle Hendricks and Jake Arrieta.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Looks like third starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies is expected to begin the season as the Cubs' No. 3 pitcher, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Kyle Hendricks was officially named the Opening Day starter Tuesday, and Jake Arrieta has slotted in second all spring, so Davies figures to be third out the gate against the Pirates on April 4. The righty was solid for the Padres last year, registering a 2.73 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 63 strikeouts across 69.1 innings. Like Hendricks, Davies doesn't overpower hitters, but he can still be an effective fantasy pitcher due to good ratios and win potential.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Sharp again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies pitched three scoreless innings in Monday's Cactus League game against the Rangers. He walked one and didn't have any strikeouts.

Through two starts this spring, Davies has pitched five scoreless innings with no hits allowed. He pitched well in 2020, posting a 2.73 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 12 starts (69.1 innings) for the Padres, and while the 28-year-old is not the flashiest name out there, he could be in line for continued success in his first season with the Cubs.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Sharp in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies pitched two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners. He walked one and struck out two.

Davies looked good in his team debut, recording his six outs without allowing a hit. The 28-year-old seems to be in line to serve as the Cubs' No. 3 starter this season. Davies posted a sub-3.60 ERA the past two years, so he could be a decent fantasy option, though he doesn't offer a ton of strikeouts.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Could be No. 3 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies could be the No. 3 starter behind Kyle Hendricks and Jake Arrieta to open the season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Davies was shipped to Chicago in December in the trade that sent Yu Darvish to San Diego. The Cubs have also parted ways with Jon Lester and Jose Quintana this offseason, so Davies will certainly have an opportunity to seize a prominent role with the Cubs. The 28-year-old posted a strong 2.73 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 69.1 innings last season.

Cubs' Zach Davies: Shipped to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davies has been traded to Cubs along with four prospects in exchange for Yu Darvish and Victor Caratini, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Davies is coming off a solid year in which he logged a 2.73 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 69.1 innings for the Padres. With Darvish headed to San Diego, and southpaws Jon Lester and Jose Quintana currently testing free agency, the Cubs are likely hoping that Davies can slot in near the top of their rotation alongside Kyle Hendricks in 2021.
