Bullpen Ratings

Next up is new closer, Wade Davis. Davis was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Jorge Soler during the offseason. Soler never really blossomed with the Cubs as he battled with multiple injuries, so a move made sense.

Considering the fact that Aroldis Chapman ran back to the New York Yankees, Chicago was in need of a closer. Wade’s 91 overall is the fourth highest in the game among closers behind Kenley Jansen (95), Zach Britton (92), and Chapman (92).

A few other Cubs’ relievers sit at or under the 84 mark. Those men being Pedro Strop and Hector Rondon at 84 and former Red Sox closer, Koji Uehara at 83.
