    • Rays' Alex Colome: Likely to be traded
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colome is likely to be traded this offseason, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He is arbitration eligible for the first time, and figures to be rewarded pretty handsomely in the arbitration process after notching 84 saves over the past two seasons. The Rays are reportedly extremely motivated to trim payroll, and Colome would be a prized commodity on the market. This is relevant as it is not a lock that he would be dealt to a team where he would close. The Dodgers, Red Sox, Yankees and Indians are all contending teams with established closers that could be interested in Colome, so if he were traded to one of those four teams, his value in keeper leagues could take a significant hit.

    • Rays' Alex Colome: Records 47th save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colome allowed one run on two hits in an inning against the Orioles on Saturday, but escaped with a save. He gave up back-to-back hits to begin the frame, and one of those runners came around to score on a sac fly, but Colome eventually nailed down the 4-3 win for Tampa Bay. Colome is now up to 47 saves on the season, six more than anyone else in baseball and nine more than anyone else in the American League. The 28-year-old is arbitration eligible for the first time this winter.

    • Rays' Alex Colome: Notches 46th save Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colome retired the only batter he faced to earn his 46th save Saturday against the Orioles. The Rays had an eight-run lead to start the ninth inning, but after six runs crossed the plate, Colome was called upon to close out the contest, which he did on two pitches. Even though he's blown six saves, he's an elite fantasy option with 46 saves and a 3.17 ERA.

    • Colome worked around a hit in a scoreless inning of work to earn his 45th save of the season Sunday against the Red Sox. Two days removed from a blown save, Colome didn't show any ill effects and curiously needed just four pitches to retire the side. He continues to rack up saves with regularity and currently leads the next closest competitor in the American League by nine in that category.

    • Rays' Alex Colome: Blows sixth save against Red Sox
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colome allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk and only managed two outs in the ninth Friday against the Red Sox for his sixth blown save. This marks Colome's first blown save since July 27 against the Yankees and the first time he has allowed multiple runs in an inning since July 4 against the Cubs. Colome owns the major league lead in saves with 44, but he has been hittable this year, as he owns a 3.22 ERA after Friday's rough outing.
