Alex Colome pitched 1/3 of an inning, allowing two hits, one walk, and one earned run Friday. He struck out on Reds’ batter and tallied his seventh loss of the season.
Colome has a 4.74 ERA, .293 BAA, and a 1.58 K/BB ratio in 48 games this season. The 33-year-old has struggled over his last seven games. He has a 18.69 ERA in 4 1/3 innings pitched during that span. Fantasy managers are best leaving Colome on the waiver wire.
Alex Colome allowed just one hit in a scoreless ninth inning of Thursday's 4-2 win over the Giants.
Colome is on fire out of the pen, as he has not allowed an earned run in his last 13 appearances. He likely won't slide into the closer role anytime soon with Daniel Bard there, but he has been very solid for Colorado as of late.
Colorado Rockies RP Alex Colome pitched one inning of relief on Saturday, striking out one, walking one, and allowing two hits for two earned runs in the Rockies 3-2 win over the Tigers.
Colome picked up the save on Saturday in the second game of the back-to-back but it was close to being a blown save as he entered the game with a three run lead and came out with a one run win. The relieving pitcher's ERA rose to 6.35 due to the near blow save and it may be best to approach him with caution after this brutal performance for what was only his second save of the season.
Colorado Rockies RP Alex Colome pitched the final inning, walking one and allowing no hits in the Rockies' 4-1 win over the Phillies.
Colome has pitched in four games so far this year for a total of 3.2 innings and finally picked up his first save. The reliever has an ERA of 2.45 and a WHIP of 1.91 but with only two strikeouts so far and the single save may be of too little value to deserve a roster spot on any roster at the moment.
Alex Colome signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Rockies
It is always dreaded news when a pitcher heads to Coors Field. Colome does not strike out a ton of batters, but he does keep the ball on the ground at a high rate, which could play well in Coors. Colome has a track record as a closer, with a career 155 saves. There is a real possibility that Colome slots into the closer role in Colorado.
