Alex Colomé News
Colorado Rockies right-handed reliever Alex Colome has been placed on the 15-day injured list with right lateral epicondylitis, which is more commonly known as tennis elbow. In his place, Justin Lawrence was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Colome owns a 4.68 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and .292 OBA along with 5.95 K/9 and 3.61 BB/9 through 46 games (42.1 innings) this season. He has tallied seven holds, four saves, and three blown saves along the way.
Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Alex Colome (hamstring) was removed from Tuesday's game against the San Diego Padres after he felt his hamstring cramp up. He was pitching in the eighth inning of the game and recorded two outs before he was lifted. His final line was 2/3 of an inning, two hits, one walk and two runs (one earned). He will be reevaluated by the team on Wednesday. The 33-year-old has made 35 appearances this year and he's pitched to a 2.94 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP while racking up five holds and four saves.
Colorado Rockies pitcher Alex Colome allowed one hit over a scoreless inning to earn the save during Thursday's 4-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. He entered the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead. The 33-year-old tossed a scoreless inning to earn his third save of the season. Colorado's primary closer Daniel Bard was unavailable after pitching in previous back-to-back games. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run over his last 11 1/3 innings and owns a 2.53 ERA across 21 1/3 innings in 2022. Colome is a perfect 3-for-3 in save opportunities, but with the lack of save chances, he is mainly an option in deep-league formats.
Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Alex Colome has been depended on to close out games since 2016. He has accumulated 138 career saves in the process. In 2017 with the Rays, he even led the American league with 47 saves. For the past two seasons, Colome was the White Sox's stopper, and it has become apparent that he is quite comfortable in the closer's role. Last year was a fortunate one. Colome pitched to a 0.81 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP, although it came with a fantastically lucky .200 BABIP and an 86% strand rate. Some of his component skills are on the decline as well. His strikeout rate hit a six-year low at 18%, and his walk rate has grown over the past two seasons. He did compensate for fewer strikeouts in '20 with more ground balls, though, with a 52% ground-ball rate. In Minnesota, he could become the club's primary closer after Taylor Rogers and Sergio Romo split the duties a season ago. Colome still has enough skills to close games should he be tasked with the job, but don't overspend on a guy whose strikeout and walk rates are going in the wrong direction, especially since he may not have a firm grasp on the closer's gig in his new home.
