Chicago Cubs Trade for Premier Pitcher, Wade Davis

Cameron Deahl is currently studying for his BS at the New York University's Stern School of Business. Growing up in Chicago, Cameron Deahl is a longtime fan of the Chicago Cubs.

The excitement probably still hasn’t worn off Cubs’ fans after the team won their first World Series Championship in 108 years in 2016. Nevertheless, 2017 will be a new year, and the team’s management has been busy in the off-season trying to improve the team even further for a possible repeat performance in 2017.

In what was arguably the Cubs’ biggest off-season trade, they dealt left fielder Jorge Soler for Wade Davis. Soler was solid in 2016, but his services won’t be crucial since Kyle Schwarber has recovered from his six-month absence following knee surgery.

Wade Davis is a 6’5” right-handed relief pitcher with eight years of MLB experience, and his 1.18 ERA over the last three seasons was lowest of any reliever with at least 150 innings pitched. The Cubs can expect him to be the closer they need in a pinch.
