White Sox's Alex Colome: Confirmed as closer
Colome was battling Kelvin Herrera for the role. Herrera's 2.70 ERA and five strikeouts in 6.2 innings are each better than Colome's 4.50 ERA and three strikeouts in three frames this spring, but Colome was announced as the winner by manager Rick Renteria. The confirmed role should boost Colome's fantasy value, though he's far from a top-tier closer, as his career 22.2 percent strikeout rate is well below the numbers produced by most ninth-inning options.
