Standout closer Wade Davis and the Colorado Rockies have agreed on a three-year, $52 million deal, according to multiple reports on Friday. Most believed the Rockies would make a concerted effort to re-sign Holland this winter. The team signed Brandon Morrow to a two-year, $21 million deal this offseason. The Rockies now have a comparable one.

The signing, of course, brings into question if the Rockies will now attempt to re-sign last year's closer, Greg Holland.

The Rockies offseason has shown they are taking care of a vital need, beefing up that all-important bullpen.

For now, Colorado appears to have a bullpen that features the three-time All-Star Davis at the back end, with Mike Dunn, Adam Ottavino, McGee and Shaw as formidable late-inning setup men.

More Pregnant Women Turning To Cannabis, Study Finds
An expert speculates that the rise might be partially explained by the increased availability of legal marijuana in recent years. However, on a federal level, it is still illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana.

If Davis' contract from the Rockies seems like a lot, that's because it is.

Davis didn't earn quite as much on the open market as closers like Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen did previous year.

Davis also saw his walks rise in 2017, with his walks per nine innings (BB/9) increasing to 4.30 from 3.32 in 2016. That was the lowest in Royals history by a reliever, which broke his record from the 2014 season (1.00). Davis' groundball rate (GB%) also took a major dive, dropping from 48.6% to 40.5%, a grim omen now that his home ballpark will be the ridiculously hitter-friendly Coors Field.

After the Rockies reached the wild-card game in 2017, expectations will be high heading into 2018.
