Right-handed pitcher Wade Davis, who was a three-time All-Star and won a World Series championship with the Royals in 2015, announced his retirement from Major League Baseball today through his agency.
Davis, 36, finished his career with the Royals this past year and also pitched for the club from 2013-16, which included recording the final outs of the 2015 World Series.
He pitched in six different postseasons totaling 57 strikeouts combined. That includes three victories and four saves with Kansas City during the 2014 and 2015 postseasons.
“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 press release Wednesday.
He appeared in 40 games with the Royals in 2021 and recorded 38 strikeouts with 19 walks, also collecting a pair of saves.
Davis and his wife, Katelyn, have a daughter, Sully and a son, Ty.
