Colome has allowed seven runs on nine hits (three home runs) and one walk while striking out two over three spring appearances.
Colome has allowed runs in all three of his appearances, but it doesn't mean a thing. He will open the season as the White Sox's closer after a successful first season in Chicago. He was 30-for-33 in save opportunities in 2019 and is one of the more stable closers entering 2020.
Colome and the White Sox avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $10,532,500 deal, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
Colome saved 30 games for the 72-win White Sox last season while posting a 2.80 ERA. He could be in line for a higher total this season after the team made several moves to be more competitive over the offseason, though Steve Cishek, who owns 132 career saves, is now available as an alternative should Colome get off to a poor start.
Colome (4-5) took the loss and was charged with the blown save after allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits over two-thirds of an inning in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He struck out one and did not issue a walk.
Colome entered the ninth inning and immediately had a baserunner reach on an error, followed by a single, a flyout and a three-run homer. It's the 30-year-old's third blown save of the season as he's recorded 30 saves with a 2.80 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 55:23 K:BB through 61 innings.
Colome struck out the only batter he faced Wednesday to record his 30th save of the season in an 8-3 win over Cleveland.
Jace Fry created the save situation for Colome by loading the bases with two outs in the ninth inning. The right-hander has now reached 30 saves for the third time in the last four seasons.
Colome allowed one unearned run Saturday on two hits with zero walks and two strikeouts, completing the ninth inning in his 29th save of the season in a 5-3 victory against the Tigers.
It was far from perfect, but Colome secured the closure, moving him one save away from his most since 2017. His ERA and WHIP, however, are better than they were in 2017, meaning this is one of the best seasons of his career. Colome is 4-4 with a 2.55 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 53 strikeouts in 60 innings this season.
Colome threw a perfect ninth inning, recording one strikeout, to pick up the save in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Twins.
Colome was the eighth and final pitcher of a bullpen game for the White Sox. He came on to shut down the Twins in the bottom of the ninth inning after rookie Zack Collins provided insurance with a solo home run in the top of the inning. He recorded his 28th save in 30 opportunities.
Colome (4-4) allowed a run on one hit while striking out one to pick up the loss against the Mariners on Saturday.
Colome entered a tied game in the 10th inning and served up a walkoff home run to former White Sox catcher Omar Narvaez. Putting aside the loss in a non-save situation, Colome has been the league's top closer in terms of percentage, converting 96.4 percent of his opportunities.
Colome allowed two hits and a walk but didn't surrender a run over 1.1 innings to earn the save in Friday's 9-7 win over the Mariners.
Colome struck out one in the appearance. The closer was called to the mound after Aaron Bummer allowed a pair of runs in the eighth, and Colome was able to escape the jam before handling the ninth. He owns a 2.40 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 56.1 innings this season, and now has 27 saves.
Colome (4-3) allowed a home run and struck out one to pick up the loss Friday against the Angels.
Colome entered with the game tied and served up a gopher ball to Justin Upton, the first homer he's allowed in 25 games (25.2 innings) going back to June 11. Apart from a slightly elevated walk rate, Colome has been everything the White Sox hoped for. The club has him under control through the 2020 season, and he will most likely serve as the team's closer next year, when the White Sox hope to begin a competitive window with its best prospects at the major-league level.
Colome didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save Tuesday against the Indians.
Colome was called upon to protect a one-run lead and did so effectively, recording the last out with a three-pitch strikeout of Mike Freeman to earn his 26th save. He has stumbled a bit of late, surrendering at least one earned run in four of his last nine outings. Still, the White Sox have shown no sign of turning away from him. Colome has been mostly effective this season, posting a 2.42 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 52 innings.
Colome walked one through a scoreless and hitless inning to record his 25th save in a 2-0 win over the Rangers on Sunday.
Colome allowed the one walk, but he made quick work of the Rangers otherwise to nail down his 25th save. Colome has converted 25 of his 26 save opportunities this season. The 30-year-old has a 2.34 ERA and a 7.56 K/9 through 50 innings.
Colome picked up the save against the Twins on Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits over one inning to close out a 6-4 victory for the White Sox. He struck out one and walked none.
Tasked with protecting a three-run lead, Colome wasn't at his sharpest in allowing the Twins to hack the deficit to 6-4, but he managed to bare down and bag his 24th save of the year. The 30-year-old right-hander is putting in a solid season as the closer for the White Sox, as he's sporting a 2.44 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 48 innings and has still blown just one save opportunity.
Colome allowed one run on one hit and a walk with one strikeout during the ninth inning in a 5-3 victory against the Tigers on Tuesday, picking up his 22nd save.
After retiring the first two batters, Colome did allow the tying run to come to the plate. However, the only reason he gave up a run is because of a catcher's indifference, which, of course, is quite common in the ninth inning when one team is ahead by a few runs. Unfortunately, it does mean Colome has allowed four runs in his last 8.2 innings (4.15 ERA). He is 3-2 with 22 saves in 23 opportunities to go with a 2.44 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 44.1 innings this season.
Colome was not traded and will continue to close games for the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Colome was a popular name in trade speculation, but the trade deadline passed and he stayed with the White Sox. Since he can't become a free agent until after the 2020 season, there's a good chance he'll be closing games next season as well. He appeared in Wednesday's game against the Mets after the deadline passed, serving up three unearned runs on three hits and a walk while retiring two batters en route to suffering his second loss of the season.
Colome walked one and struck out one in a scoreless 11th inning to pick up the save in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rays.
The White Sox opened the second half losers of seven straight, providing Colome with little opportunity before he locked down his 21st save Saturday. That losing streak likely dashed any postseason hopes for the White Sox, who now stand 11 games out of the wild-card race, which could trigger a sell-off at the trade deadline. Colome, who is working on a one-year deal, is a prime candidate to be dealt.
Colome allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Sunday, securing the save over the Cubs.
Colome didn't strike anyone out, but he needed just eight pitches to get the job done Sunday. He owns a 2.02 ERA and a minuscule 0.70 WHIP with 20 saves this season.
Colome collected the save Sunday after throwing 1.1 scoreless innings against the Twins.
Colome retired the final four batters of the contest with ease, firing 13 of 18 pitches for strikes. The 30-year-old right-hander did blow a save Wednesday against Boston, but he's managed to bounce back by converting on both of his last two save opportunities.
Colome pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn a save in a 6-4 victory against the Twins on Friday.
The White Sox closer didn't start the ninth, but after the Twins scored two runs on a homer to pull within two, Chicago turned to Colome. He struck out the first batter he faced on three pitches and then needed just seven pitches to retire the next two hitters. Colome is 17-for-18 in save opportunities with a 2.25 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 32 innings this season.
Colome (3-1) earned a victory after blowing a save while yielding a run on one hit and a walk across 1.2 innings during an 8-7 victory against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
This was Colome's first blown save of year, but at least he didn't lose the lead twice and earned a victory. While Colome has yielded four runs in his last 7.1 innings, he still owns a 2.32 ERA and 0.71 WHIP. He is also 3-1 and 16-for-17 in save opportunities with 25 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.
Colome walked one over a scoreless 10th inning to pick up the save in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Rangers.
There's nothing flashy or dominating about Colome, but the 30-year-old has yet to blow a save this year, successfully converting all 16 of his opportunities. His 2.15 ERA and 0.68 WHIP seems likely to rise once the luck runs out on his .104 BABIP, however.
