The King’s poor return to the KC after five years of contracting Davis Minor.
Wade Davis (35), who led the 2015 World Series championship, returned to the Kansas City Royals.
Bob Nightingale of USA Today, a U.S. media outlet, reported on the 21st (Korean time) that “Davis, a former bullpen FA, will return to Kansas City for the first time in four years due to a minor league contract.
It is a split contract that allows Davis to receive an incentive of $1.25 million and $925,000 per year if he enters the Major League roster. Davis may opt out if he fails to make the opening roster 먹튀검증놀이터
Davis, who was named to the Tampa Bay Rays in the third round of the 2004 draft, made his debut in 2009 as a starting pitcher, but saw the light of day after a final transition in 2012. After being traded to Kansas City in 2013, he became a key bullpen player for Kansas City.
In particular, since 2014, Davis has shown his best performance in 185 games, 19 wins, 4 losses, 51 holds, 47 saves, 182.2 innings, 234 strikeouts, and an ERA of 1.18. Along with Greg Holland and Kelvin Herrera, he led Kansas City to the World Series for the second consecutive year, culminating in 2015.
Davis, who rose to the end of the 2015 season, posted an ERA of 0.94 with 69 regular season games, eight wins, one loss, 18 holds and 17 saves. His performance continued in the postseason, and he won the World Series with 10.2 scoreless innings.
Davis, who also played well with the Chicago Cubs, who moved to the trade in 2017, succeeded in winning a three-year, $52 million contract from the Colorado Rockies.
Davis made 43 saves in his first year, helping Colorado advance to the Division Series, but there was no previous appearance. Afterwards, he repeated his endless slump and was released during the season in September last year, ending his three-year career in Colorado.
His Colorado record was 4–13 with 60 saves and a 6.49 ERA in 124 games.
Meanwhile, Kansas City drew attention by signing Holland last year and Davis this year. Davis, who inherited the Kansas City finish from Holland in the past, left Kansas City and topped the league save list in Colorado, resembling the worst FA contract since then.
Coincidentally, Holland rejoined Kansas City a year earlier and made a comeback, and Davis seemed to follow Holland once again. Fans are paying keen attention to whether Kansas City can save Davis following Holland.
