Wade Davis ready to regain closer’s role with Colorado


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Wade Davis has again entered spring training as the Colorado Rockies’ closer after a rough 2019 season.

Davis lost his ninth-inning role in the final two months last year, when he finished 1-6 with 15 saves and an 8.65 ERA in the least effective effort of an 11-year career. Colorado manager Bud Black says his confidence in Davis’ return this season is based on what he knows of Davis.

The 34-year-old Davis has a resume that includes a World Series ring with Kansas City in 2015, a 1.80 ERA in 30 postseason appearances and four All-Star Game appearances.
