All-Star RHP Wade Davis announces retirement

Three-time All-Star pitcher Wade Davis announced his retirement Wednesday after 13 major league seasons.

Davis, 36, finishes with a record of 63-55 with a 3.94 ERA and 141 saves in 557 appearances. He also started 88 games early in his career. The right-hander won a World Series title with Kansas City in 2015.

“Wade will forever be remembered by our fans, his teammates and our organization as an elite competitor and a very classy person,” Royals president of baseball operations Dayton Moore said in a statement. “He helped anchor one of the very best bullpens in Royals history which was a major factor in our World Championship in 2015.”

Davis recorded the final two outs to clinch the World Series for the Royals over the New York Mets.

Davis finished his career in Kansas City in 2021, his second stint with the Royals. He earned two of his three All-Star nods in Kansas City in 2015 and 2016. He joined the Royals in 2013 after four seasons in Tampa Bay, the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2004 draft.

“I’m forever thankful for the way he represented our great city and for the committed husband he is to Katelyn and the special father he is to Sully and Ty,” Moore added.

Davis earned his third All-Star appearance with the Chicago Cubs in 2017. He then pitched for Colorado from 2018-2020. He led the National League with a career-high 43 saves for the Rockies in 2018.
