Fantasy Impact:

Colome's demotion opens the door for Taylor Rogers to become the Twins closer. Colome has two saves in five chances, while Rogers has one save, one blown save, and three holds. From a skills standpoint, the move makes sense, and if Rogers keeps pitching the way he has been, then Colome may never regain the closer's role.
