Zach Davies News
The Arizona Diamondbacks re-signed right-hander Zach Davies to a one-year deal worth $5 million on Wednesday. The deal also includes $3 million in incentives. Davies became a free agent this offseason after declining his $1.5 million mutual option for the 2023 season. The 29-year-old makes sense for an up-and-coming Arizona team at the back end of their rotation as an innings-eater. Davies went 2-5 for the Snakes last season with a 4.09 ERA (4.83 FIP), 1.29 WHIP, 17.9 percent strikeout rate and 9.1 percent walk rate in 134 1/3 innings over 27 starts in the desert. He'll have to pitch well to keep his spot in the rotation for a Diamondbacks team that has some nice young talent ready and waiting in the pipeline. Davies has little fantasy upside because of a weak 17.4 percent strikeout rate.
The Arizona Diamondbacks placed right-hander Zach Davies (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list on Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation and recalled reliever Sean Poppen from the minors in a corresponding move. Davies will now miss at least the next two weeks and possibly longer, depending on the severity of his injury. The 29-year-old allowed two earned runs on five hits while walking one and striking out two in his last outing on Saturday, and he's 2-4 on the season with a 3.94 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 62 strikeouts and 26 walks in 80 innings over his 15 starts. Davies hasn't been bad by any means, but his very weak 18% strikeout rate leave a lot to be desired from fantasy managers. It remains to be seen who will replace Davies in Arizona's rotation.
Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zach Davies (leg) is on track to make his scheduled start on Sunday. He was helped off the field after taking a line drive off his leg during Monday's game. The tests came back clean, so it sounds like Davies will take the mound against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. He is posting a 4.81 ERA through nine starts this season. It's unlikely that Davies is going to be a reliable option for Sunday's outing. Fantasy managers should be able to find a better streaming option.
Everything came together for Chicago Cubs starting pitcherZach Davies in his one year with the Padres, as he posted career-bests in ERA (2.73), WHIP (1.07) and strikeout rate (22.8%). This was, however, one of the least believable breakouts in recent memory, as he benefited hugely from a low BABIP (.249) and high strand rate (78.2%). It is also notable that he achieved these great results without changing anything about himself. His pitch arsenal remained the same and he added no velocity or movement to those pitches. He remained a very fly-ball heavy pitcher (41.3% ground-ball rate) and actually surrendered the highest expected wOBA on contact of his career (.401). A December trade put him in the Chicago Cubs rotation, which is a neutral move, at best, as he goes to a slightly better ballpark for pitchers but has a much worse offense backing him. Do not be fooled by the numbers. Davies will be an average-at-best fantasy pitcher in 2021.
