Diamondbacks pitcher Doug Davis is already looking ahead to free agency. Davis is open to returning to the Diamondbacks next season, but poor numbers along with a disappointing second half doesn't help his chances. Davis has an ERA of 4.01, but has a FIP of 4.78, which shows his true ERA as pitcher this season.
|2009 - Doug Davis||7-13||31||31||0||0||0||0||184.0||180||90||82||23||92||136||4.01||1.48|
Davis pitched in Milwaukee for four seasons, and would seriously consider an offer from the Brewers.
"I've pitched there before and (Brewers General Manager) Doug Melvin and I have a lot of history," Davis said. "I would think signing with them is definitely a possibility, but I think there are a lot of teams out there that could use me."
Durability will definitely benefit Davis, who has made 193 starts since the 2004, the most by a lefty in that span. The 34-year old will certainly have interest elsewhere, and could receive a two, possibly three year deal.
The Indians, in need of a pitcher to replace the the innings eater Carl Pavano, could look into Davis' services.
