Brewers sign LHP Doug Davis; Coffey avoids arbitration
Posted on: 01/21/10
by: Patrick Ebert

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed left-handed pitcher Doug Davis to a one-year, $4.25 million dollar deal that includes a mutual option for 2011. The option is worth $6.5 million, which includes a $1 million buyout should the Brewers opt out. Davis can also earn $1 million worth of performance bonuses in both years of the contract.

Davis, 34, has spent the last three years with the Diamondbacks after being traded to Arizona in November of 2006, along with Dana Eveland and Dave Krynzel, for Johnny Estrada, Greg Aquino and Claudio Vargas. In that time Davis has posted a 4.22 ERA, just up from the 4.20 ERA he posted from 2003 through 2006 in his first tour with the Brewers.

Last season he went 9-13 with a 4.12 ERA while also eclipsing the 200 inning mark, the first time he had done so since he posted three consecutive 200-inning seasons with the Brewers from 2004-06.

Once Davis' signing becomes official upon passing his physical, the Brewers' 40-man roster will be full.

Right-handed reliever Todd Coffey also avoided arbitration by signing a one-year deal worth $2.025 million. It was also learned that Carlos Gomez, whose signing was reported earlier this week, signed for $1.1 million.
