Sources tell me that the #WhiteSox asking price on controllable relievers, particularly Jace Fry and Aaron Bummer, is very high. Colome has much less control than the other two, and has a high asking price, but is much more likely to go in the coming hours.— Jason Kinander (@JasonKinander) July 31, 2019
The 30-year-old Colome has long been a solid reliever with a career 3.02 ERA in 284 games over the past 7 years, including 117 saves. His high-water mark was 47 saves in 2017 for the Tampa Bay Rays.
This year for the South Siders, he’s put up a 2.21 ERA in 41 appearances, collecting 21 saves. He may not be striking out batters like he has in years past, but he’s still been extremely effective with an ERA+ of 211. He’s also kept the ball in the park -- a rarity for relievers this year -- with only 4 home runs allowed in 40.2 innings.
