Wade Davis worked around a single allowed in a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 10-8 win against the Mets, securing his 21st save.
It was a tidy outing for Davis, who threw eight of his 10 pitches for strikes. He blew his past two save opportunities so fantasy owners needed to see a dominant effort. It wasn't a perfect appearance, but he was pounding the strike zone and this is what you want to see. While he has managed just seven saves over his past 10 opportunities since May 11, he should still be viewed as one of the better closer options in the game. Jun 21 - 1:40 AM

Wade Davis allowed four earned runs, two hits and four walks while retiring just one batter in Sunday's blown save and loss in Texas.

Davis was given a three-run cushion in the top of the ninth inning after a Trevor Story two-run homer but the closer was unable to take advantage. Davis was all over the place, throwing just 15 of his 38 pitches for strikes, including zero first-pitch strikes to the seven batters he faced. He has logged 20 saves through 24 chances, but he has blown his past two opportunities and he is 0-2 with a 15.43 ERA in six June appearances. He still isn't likely skating on thin ice, but he'll need to pull it together soon.

Wade Davis took his third blown save after throwing two wild pitches and giving up a run in the ninth.

The tying run scored on the second wild pitch. Davis hasn't been flawless this year, but he's still the smallest problem in the Rockies pen. He has a 3.42 ERA and 20 saves in 23 chances.
Jun 7 - 5:08 PM

Wade Davis allowed one hit but no runs in the ninth inning to earn a save against the Reds on Wednesday.

The hit was an infield single by Eugenio Suarez, who advanced to second on a wild throw to first base on the play. Davis wasn't fazed though -- he struck out a batter and induced two infield popups to slam the door. He ranks second in the majors with 20 saves and has a 3.20 ERA on the season.
Jun 6 - 11:04 PM

Wade Davis was tagged for three earned runs, three hits and a walk with one strikeout in an inning of work Sunday against the Dodgers.

Davis needed 38 pitches to make it through the non-save appearance, throwing 23 of his 38 pitches for strikes. His ERA ballooned from 2.35 to 3.38 as a result of the uneven performance. The loss was his first decision of the season, and he has converted all but one of his 19 save opportunities. He was simply getting his work in Sunday, as he hasn't faced a save chance since May 25, and sometimes closers are shaky in non-save situations. There's nothing to worry about here.
Jun 3 - 8:14 PM

Wade Davis pitched a scoreless ninth against the Dodgers on Monday to earn his 17th save of the season.

Davis struck out one, and he allowed just an infield single to Matt Kemp; with Kemp being erased on a base running mistake as he turned towards second base and was tagged out. Davis is now 17-for-19 on saves this year, and his WHIP lowers to 1.03 to pair with his 2.66 ERA in 21 appearances.
May 22 - 12:52 AM

It was easy work for Davis, as the Rockies made him throw just 11 pitches in the ninth. He's now 15-for-17 in his save opportunities for the Rockies this year, and the scoreless inning lowers his ERA to 2.95. He's been worth every penny for Colorado so far in the 2018 campaign.
May 15 - 1:19 AM

Wade Davis fired a scoreless inning in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

Davis allowed a hit, and he struck out two with no walks. It's a nice rebound for the Colorado stopper, who blew a save on Friday night for the second time on the season. He is still 14-for-16 on the season in those opportunities, and the scoreless ninth lowers his ERA to 3.13 on the 2018 campaign.
May 12 - 11:07 PM

Wade Davis took his second blown save after giving up a two-run homer to the Brewers' Manny Pina on Friday.

May 12 - 1:49 AM

Wade Davis worked around a single in a scoreless 12-pitch ninth inning for his 14th save of the season Tuesday against the Angels.

Davis continues to sail along for the Rockies, nailing down saves in 66.7 percent of the team's victories (14 saves in 21 wins). More importantly, he knows what to do when he is handed the ball, converting all but one of his 15 chances to date. He has a solid 2.35 ERA and 0.91 WHIP, striking out 18 batters over 15 1/3 innings in what is shaping up as an All-Star season.
May 9 - 2:12 AM

Wade Davis tossed a perfect ninth inning to pick up his 13th save of the season in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Davis pitched erratically while earning the save over these same Mets on Friday, but no weirdness would ensue in Saturday's encore save chance. With the Rockies holding a 2-0 lead heading to the bottom of the ninth, he would need just 13 pitches (eight strikes) to finish the job. Todd Frazier opened against him with a groundout, followed by an Adrian Gonzalez flyout and a Juan Lagares groundout to end the game. Davis is now 13-of-14 in save opportunities and owns a 2.51 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 18/6 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings.
May 5 - 9:51 PM

Wade Davis barely hung on against the Mets on Friday for his NL-leading 12th save of the season.

Jake McGee began the ninth inning with the Rockies up by four runs, but he gave up a double to Wilmer Flores and an RBI single to Amed Rosario before being pulled. Davis ran into some trouble of his own by allowing an RBI triple to Asdrubal Cabrera and walking Jay Bruce before Todd Frazier singled to bring the Mets within one run. However, Davis was able to get Michael Conforto to strike out swinging to end it. The new Rockies’ closer has issued walks in each of his last three save chances, but he’s managed to convert them all. He’s 12-for-13 in save chances to go along with a 2.70 ERA and 18/6 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings.
May 4 - 10:40 PM

Wade Davis worked around some trouble in the ninth inning Friday against the Marlins for his 10th save of the season.

Trying to protect a one-run lead, Davis gave up a leadoff double to Derek Dietrich and issued a two-out walk to J.B. Shuck, but he managed to get J.T. Realmuto to ground into a fielder’s choice to end the game. The early returns have been promising on Davis’ three-year, $52 million deal with the Rockies. He’s 10-for-11 in save chances to go along with a 2.38 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings.
Apr 27 - 11:08 PM

Apr 21 - 11:37 PM
