Colome pitched two scoreless innings while allowing one hit and striking out two to earn his 12th save Tuesday at the Marlins. Colome came into the game with a two-run lead and two runners on with nobody out in the eighth inning. After allowing one inherited runner to score in the inning, he set the side down in order in the ninth inning to close out the win. He's now held opponents scoreless over his last 10 outings to lower his ERA to 1.29.
Colome worked around one hit, striking out a pair over a scoreless inning to record his 11th save in the Rays' win over Detroit on Friday night. Colome has provided solid work at the end of the Rays' bullpen, but with Brad Boxberger due back off the disabled list soon, he will reportedly move back to a set-up role. That will be a big hit to his fantasy value, but if Boxberger should struggle, he has proven he is up to the job.
Colome faced four batters and struck out three of them en route to his 10th save of the season Wednesday against Toronto. Remember when Colome was just an interim closer, the man at the head of a committee with Brad Boxberger on the DL? Well, 16 appearances into 2016, Colome's putting up the best results we've ever seen from him in his first campaign as a full-time reliever. He's struck out a mighty impressive 24 batters in 17.1 innings while keeping runners off the bases (0.87 WHIP) and limiting the long ball. All in all, he's been spectacular, and multi-strikeout outings like his last three will help build his case to retain the closer job even when Boxberger returns from his rehab assignment, which could be within the next week.
Colome struck out one during a spotless ninth inning to earn his ninth save of the season Sunday versus the Angels. It was quite a series for Colome's fantasy stock, as he recorded three saves and allowed just one baserunner in three innings. Colome is now 9-for-9 in save opportunities this season with a sharp 2.06 ERA and 0.94 WHIP, and his comfortability as the club's closer could give them something to think about as Brad Boxberger makes his way back from injury.
Colome nailed down his eighth save of the season, retiring the side in order during the ninth to help the Rays beat the Angels 4-2. After striking out the leadoff batter, Angels first baseman C.J. Cron singled, but Colome erased him with a double play ball to end the game. He is now 8-for-8 in save opportunities with a 2.25 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while filling in at closer for Brad Boxberger, who underwent core muscle surgery in March. It will be very interesting to see what manager Kevin Cash does with the ninth-inning role once Boxberger returns. He is set to begin his rehab assignment next week.
