Davis will also reportedly be in line for a $14 million vesting option for the 2021 season.
Rockies manager Bud Black and pitching coach Steve Foster played a significant role in recruiting Davis to Colorado, said a source. The Rockies now have a comparable one. The Rockies had been linked to wanting Holland back but it's been no secret that Holland and his agent Scott Boras were seeking a long-term deal hoping to cash in on his success from a year ago.
For the Rockies, the addition of Davis should put the finishing touches on the team's bullpen.
The average annual value of the deal surpasses the contract Aroldis Chapman signed with the New York Yankees that pays him $17.2m per season.
If Davis' contract from the Rockies seems like a lot, that's because it is.
Davis did show some signs of decline in his age 31 season in 2017, seeing a huge uptick in walks (11.6 walk percentage) and posting the lowest fastball velocity since he became a full-time reliever (94.3 mph).
Davis replaces former Kansas City Royals teammate Greg Holland as the Rockies' closer. 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. Instead, they've ended up with Davis as the back of their bullpen.
