Davis never started a ML game, but was often outstanding in relief, especially as
a set-up man for Rich Gossage with the Yankees. He had an AL rookie-record 14 relief
wins in 1979, three seasons with 25 or more saves, and on May 4, 1981 he fanned eight
consecutive Oakland batters. He had little to offer besides a hard fastball, and
was ineffective when it failed him.
