Wade Davis was the Chicago Cubs’ best reliever in 2017, but as he is set to become a free agent. We take a look at other options around the Majors.
The Chicago Cubs had issues in their bullpen this past season, but there was an utmost strength at the back end in closer Wade Davis.
Davis is a free agent and arguably the best closer available on the market this winter. Coming off one of his best seasons, Davis converted 32-of-33 save opportunities, compiled a 2.30 ERA and 12.12 K/9. He was the best when the game was on the line, close, and late.
