Alex Colome pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees in his spot start Monday.
Colome, called up before the game, was making his third start in the majors this year after opening the season on a 50-game PED suspension. He's always been an intriguing talent, though he still might project better in the pen than in the rotation for the long haul. It's unclear whether the Rays will give him another start before season's end. Sep 15 - 11:05 PM

Date:

Alex Colome will be recalled to start on Monday against the Yankees.

The Rays will also promote Nick Franklin and C.J. Riefenhauser. Colome missed the first 50 games of the season while serving a PED suspension but then posted a 3.53 ERA with 83 strikeouts across 97 innings for Triple-A Durham. He also pitched pretty well in a spot start for the Rays back in June.

Alex Colome pitched well in a spot start Friday, holding the Orioles to one run over 5 2/3 frames in a 5-2 victory.

Colome was wild (although home plate umpire Tony Randazzo's zone was tiny), walking four, but he struck out three and surrendered just two hits, out-dueling Kevin Gausman. The young right-hander was serving as the 26th man during a doubleheader and will be sent back down, but he made a nice impression.

Rays recalled RHP Alex Colome from Triple-A Durham.

Colome opened the 2014 regular season on a 50-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug in March. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a promising 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts over his first 16 major league innings last season.
May 26 - 3:59 PM

Alex Colome was suspended 50 games after testing positive for Boldenone, a performance-enhancing drug.

Colome debuted at the major league level in 2013 and posted a promising 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 16 innings. Now the 25-year-old right-hander has to sit out the first two months of the 2014 campaign. He was ranked a Top 100 prospect by Baseball America in 2010.
Mar 24 - 2:06 PM

Rays optioned RHP Alex Colome to Triple-A Durham.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise as he was a candidate for the final spot in the Rays rotation with Jeremy Hellickson beginning the season on the disabled list. He appeared in just one game for the Rays this spring, working a scoreless inning while allowing one hit.
Mar 8 - 1:40 PM

Alex Colome (elbow) said Friday that he's "ready to go."

Colome was shut down last June due to a strained elbow, but he feels fine after a long period of rest. The young right-hander will compete for the final spot in the Rays' rotation following Jeremy Hellickson's injury but will most likely begin the year at Triple-A.
Feb 14 - 10:31 AM

The Rays expect Alex Colome (elbow) to be 100 percent for spring training.

Colome missed the final three months of last season due to a strained elbow, but he didn't require surgery and will enter spring training with no limitations. The young right-hander should begin next season in the Triple-A rotation.

Rays activated RHP Alex Colome from the 60-day disabled list.

Colome missed the last three months of the season due to a strained elbow, though he didn't end up needing surgery. As long as he's healthy, he'll likely begin next year in the Triple-A rotation.

Alex Colome is likely headed to the disabled list with Triple-A Durham due to a mild elbow strain.

No word on how long he'll be sidelined. Colome was sent down to Triple-A over the weekend after he allowed seven runs (four earned) in 10 1/3 innings over two starts while filling in for David Price.
Tue, Jul 2, 2013 09:26:00 AM

Rays optioned RHP Alex Colome to Triple-A Durham.

Colome made two spot starts for the Rays, but is no longer needed with David Price expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday. He'll return to a 3.07 ERA over 71 innings at the Triple-A level.
