  • Rockies' Alex Colome: Records second save

    Colome earned the save against the Tigers in Game 2 of a doubelheader Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one over one inning.

    It wasn't a smooth performance for Colome, as he threw only 12 of 22 pitches for strikes and nearly blew a three-run lead. He gave up a two-run, two-out triple in the ninth but was able to get Harold Castro to go down on strikes to finish the contest. Daniel Bard picked up five of the first six Colorado saves this season, but he curiously hasn't pitched since April 19. Colome has now collected two saves this season and appears lined up for closer duties whenever Bard isn't used in that role.

  • Rockies' Alex Colome: Notches first save

    Colome walked one batter in a scoreless ninth inning and earned a save over the Phillies on Monday.

    After blowing a save chance in his first 2022 appearance, Colome notched his first save of the year Monday. He issued a two-out walk to Rhys Hoskins but had no trouble finishing off the 4-1 victory. Colome is now sporting a 2.45 ERA through 3.2 innings this season.

  • Rockies' Alex Colome: Used in setup role

    Colome allowed one hit but pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Monday's win over Texas.

    Colome entered the game with the score tied at three and allowed a leadoff hit, but he was able to escape the inning otherwise unscathed. It was a bounce-back effort from Colome, who surrendered the lead in his first appearance with the team during the team's weekend series against the Dodgers. Colome has now made each of his appearances in the eighth inning in games with potential save chances for Colorado. Daniel Bard has pitched the ninth on each occasion, and Bard appears to be the frontrunner for saves early on in the campaign.

  • Rockies' Alex Colome: Lands in Colorado

    Colome signed a one-year contract with Colorado on Saturday, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

    Colome's 155 saves give him the coveted "proven closer" label, and he continues to find work in the ninth inning despite the fact that his career 21.7 percent strikeout rate comes in far below typical closer territory. He picked up 17 saves for the Twins last season despite a mediocre 4.15 ERA, and it would hardly be a surprise to see him eclipse that number in 2022. While Coors Field will inflate his ERA and WHIP, he only has to beat out a mediocre mix of Carlos Estevez, Daniel Bard and Robert Stephenson to earn the ninth-inning role. If you want the cheapest path to saves and don't care about getting much else from your closer, Colome could be the answer.

  • Twins' Alex Colome: Becomes free agent

    Minnesota have declined their mutual option in Colome's contract and will buy out his 2022 contract for $1.25 million, making him a free agent, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Had both sides elected the option, Colome would have made $5.5 million in 2022. Colome was signed to shore up the back end of the bullpen, but he lost the closer job after an awful April where he blew three of six save chances and had a 8.31 ERA. He improved in the second half of the season and regained the closer role in September. However, the Twins decided to move on even though his option wasn't too expensive for a veteran closer/set-up man.

  • Twins' Alex Colome: Closes out Tigers

    Colome allowed two earned runs on three hits and no walks while striking out two across one inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Tigers.

    Colome failed to maintain the shutout, though he did manage to escape his outing with his 17th save of the season. He surrendered a leadoff single, and after recording consecutive outs, Colome followed that up by allowing two singles, forcing him to strike out Robbie Grossman with the tying run on first base. Despite the shaky outing, Colome has only allowed five earned runs across his last 12.1 frames while also compiling a 17:2 K:BB in that span.

The right-hander has successfully converted nine of his last 10 save opportunities and has held opponents scoreless in 12 of his last 14 appearances overall.

Despite the rocky outing, Colome has pitched well of late, as he's allowed only three earned runs across 10.1 frames in September.

  • Twins' Alex Colome: Secures 10th save

He's now 10-for-16 in save opportunities with a 4.26 ERA through 50.2 innings. Colome has a secure grasp on the closer role with Taylor Rogers (finger) on the injured list and could continue seeing some ninth-inning work when he returns.

  • Twins' Alex Colome: Picks up ninth save

    Colome allowed one hit and one walk but no runs over an inning of work Saturday night, picking up his ninth save in the Twins' 6-4 win over the Brewers.

The right-hander got Lorenzo Cain to ground out before walking Pablo Reyes and allowing a single to Omar Narvaez that put the tying run on first base. Fortunately for both fantasy managers and the Twins, the 32-year-old induced a double play from Jace Peterson to end the game. With Taylor Rogers still on the injured list with a sprained left middle finger, Colome figures to see the bulk of the Twins' save opportunities.
