Davis doesn't want to be traded
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Contrary to what some recent reports have said, Wade Davis does not want to be traded.

Davis, who has been one of the Rays' five starters the past two seasons, is in competition this spring to remain in the starting rotation. The fact that he has to compete for a job -- and might end up in the bullpen if he doesn't win a job -- have been cited reasons for Davis wanting to be traded.

"I'm like look, this is all completely untrue, the trade talk," Davis said. "I don't know who would say it or why, but it represents me in a horrible way, because that has nothing to do with my approach to this year or the team. I want to be a part of this team regardless."

Davis said he would always stand by his stated desire that his preference is to be a starter, but foremost he wants to remain a Ray.
