The Cubs closer from a year ago, Davis probably would have hoped for a bit longer of a deal but a closer earning north of $17 million is a reminder of just how much baseball salaries have grown in recent years.

According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, the contract would be the highest per-year deal ever for a relief pitcher. The Davis deal includes a fourth-year option that could push the deal upwards of $60 million. He won a World Series in the closing role with Kansas City in 2015, recording the final three outs in game 5 to beat the Mets and win the title. Of those 79 saves, 76 have come in the last three seasons with the Royals and Cubs.

Traded by the Royals to the Cubs last December for Jorge Soler, Davis responded by going 4-2 with a 2.30 ERA while picking up 32 saves - a career high.

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

At that point, the Rockies also reportedly were close to re-signing Holland, a free agent who had 41 saves for them in a bounce-back 2017 season following Tommy John surgery. However, the signing of Davis may change that. He was part of the Royals' 2015 World Series-winning team.

With Adam Ottavino, Mike Dunn and Chris Rusin, the Rockies could spend up to $45 million on relievers in 2018 - the most expensive bullpen in the National League.
