Fort Myers – Wade Davis views himself as a starting pitcher. He believes he has a lot to offer in that role. He believes he can help the Rays achieve their ultimate goal this season of reaching the World Series as a member of the rotation.

But, Davis will pitch out of the bullpen, at least in the foreseeable future. And, he sees that as a positive, as well.

“It’s not a demotion,” Davis said. “We’re still all going for the same thing, to get to the World Series as a team. Individualizing yourself and taking it personally would be stupid. It would be selfish.”
