Baseball betting will have starting pitcher Doug Davis on the board this season with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Davis had some of his best years in Milwaukee but was traded to Arizona in 2006. Now he is back on the MLB betting board with the Brewers.
Baseball betting has seen Davis very competitive in his career. He is a left-handed pitcher who can keep a team in the game. Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin was thrilled to get Davis back. Davis and the Brewers agreed to a one year deal for $4.25 million this baseball betting season. There is also a mutual option for 2011 at $6.5 million. Baseball betting indicated that there is also a $1 million dollar buyout and another $1 million in incentives.
Melvin has added two free agent pitchers that should help the Brewers this season in MLB betting. With Randy Wolf and now Doug Davis, the Brewers have two quality left-handed starters. "He’s got durability," Melvin said of Davis. "I’ve always admired how he takes the ball and gets the most out of his stuff." Davis really helps a team’s bullpen. He has reached at least 200 innings and 34 starts in four of the last six seasons. He is the only pitcher in baseball who can make that claim. He is huge for Milwaukee since the Brewers were 15th in the National League in innings pitched as MLB betting stats showed. Davis didn’t get much run support last year and it cost him wins. He was 9-14 with a 4.12 ERA in 34 baseball betting starts. He still pitched 203 innings. His numbers look at lot better in MLB betting when you throw out a few starts. He actually made 22 quality starts last baseball betting season. "He’s always been an ‘innings’ guy," said Melvin. "His walks are high and he puts men on base, but he usually finds a way to get out of it. He can be bad at times, but he knows how to go deep in games. He made 13 starts beyond the sixth inning last year. We didn’t have a lot of guys doing that."
The Milwaukee rotation in baseball betting should see Randy Wolf as the top starter with Yovani Gallardo at #2 and Davis at #3. The other two spots would be a mix of Manny Parra, Dave Bush, Jeff Suppan, and Chris Narveson. Davis was a mainstay for Milwaukee in baseball betting. He was 37-36 with a 3.92 ERA in 111 starts. "I’m excited to be coming back," said Davis, "It’s great news. I’m looking forward to it.”
