Wade Davis RetiresNovember 24, 2021 | 06:12 PM
Relief pitcher Wade Davis has retired. The Kansas City Royals, a team that Davis spent five seasons with, announced the news in a tweet on Wednesday. Davis was a starter early in his career but later switched to the bullpen where he found most of his success. He pitched for the Royals, Tampa Bay Rays, Chicago Cubs, and Colorado Rockies in a 13-year, Major League career. The right-hander won a World Series ring in 2015 with Kansas City and earned All-Star honors three times in his career. He finished eighth in American League Cy Young voting in 2014 and sixth in 2015. The reliever also came in 28th in MVP voting during that season. Davis finishes his career with a lifetime 13.7 fWAR, a 3.94 ERA, and a 3.86 FIP. His postseason ERA sits at 1.80 in 40 playoff innings.
