Alex Colome blanked the A's for five innings Thursday, combining with four relievers on a 3-0 shutout.
Colome, coming off rough outings against the Yankees and Twins, worked around a leadoff triple in the first inning tonight, never allowing another extra-base hit in the contest. He's now 3-1 with a 4.81 ERA. Oddly enough, the only start in which he's gone longer than five innings is the one in which he gave up eight runs to the Yankees. May 21 - 10:46 PM

Alex Colome was hit hard in a no-decision against the Twins on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Colome also issued a walk while failing to record a strikeout. The Rays are short on rotation options at the moment, but he'll have to improve upon his 6.05 ERA if he has plans on remaining in the rotation once Matt Moore returns.
May 16 - 6:01 PM

Alex Colome was trounced in a loss to the Yankees on Monday, allowing eight runs in six innings.

The right-hander walked one and gave up 11 hits on the evening, four of which were home runs. Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran hit solo homers while Brett Gardner and Chase Headley hit three-run jacks. Colome also struck out six. With three starts to his name, he has a 5.20 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a 16/1 K/BB ratio in 16 innings. He'll attempt to rebound in a road start facing the Twins next.
May 11 - 10:15 PM

Alex Colome yielded two runs and four hits in five innings Wednesday in a win over the Red Sox.

Colome threw a modest 48 of his 79 pitches for strikes, yet he went without a walk for the second straight start. Unfortunately, he'll miss the entire four-game series against the Rangers and make his next start versus the Yankees on Monday. He's a decent enough bet in AL-only leagues, but he's not currently recommended in mixed leagues.
May 6 - 10:43 PM

Alex Colome earned a victory in his 2015 debut on Friday, allowing just three hits over five shutout innings against the Orioles.

Colome punched out six in the impressive showing without issuing a free pass. The Rays kept him on a limited pitch count in his first outing, only needing 60 pitches to get through five frames, so expect around 80 pitches when he does battle against the Red Sox in Boston on Wednesday.
May 1 - 9:53 PM

Alex Colome (illness) has been cleared to join the Rays' starting rotation Friday against the Orioles.

The game was supposed to be played at Camden Yards, but it has been moved to Tropicana Field due to the ongoing unrest in downtown Baltimore. Colome has been out all season due to a case of pneumonia. The 26-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.50 ERA and 25/19 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 career major league innings and could carry some deep mixed league value.
Apr 28 - 5:17 PM

Alex Colome (illness) will rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend in Baltimore.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times suggests that Friday would be the most likely day. Colome got a late start to spring training due to a visa issue and then went down with pneumonia, but he's healthy now and spun six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham. The young right-hander is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 27 - 4:18 PM

Alex Colome (illness) tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham.

Colome yielded only four hits and walked none while striking out six. He threw 45 of his 63 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander arrived late to Rays camp this spring due to visa issues and then caught a bad case of pneumonia once he did finally make it to Florida. Colome finally appears ready to join the Tampa Bay rotation and could be worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats.
Apr 27 - 9:05 AM

Alex Colome (illness) is slated to make one more minor league rehab start before rejoining the Rays rotation.

He can't get back soon enough as the Rays are currently dealing with trotting out the likes of Erasmo Ramirez every fifth day. With Alex Cobb working his way back, Colome's time in the rotation could also be short lived.
Apr 25 - 3:33 PM

Alex Colome (illness) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Durham.

Colome, who is working his way back from pneumonia, allowed two runs in six innings across two rehab starts with High-A Charlotte. He's slated to throw four or five innings Tuesday and the next step could be for him to join the Rays' rotation.
Apr 21 - 10:28 AM

Alex Colome (illness) will make his second rehab start Thursday night with High-A Charlotte.

Colome, who's recovering from pneumonia, tossed three scoreless innings in his rehab debut last Saturday. He could be cleared to join the Rays' patchwork rotation if his outing Thursday goes smoothly. The 26-year-old right-hander may carry some deep mixed league fantasy value when he does get that clearance.
Apr 16 - 9:12 AM

Alex Colome (illness) will make his first minor league rehab start for High-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Colome dealt with a nasty bout of pneumonia during the spring and is still building up his strength and working his way back. He's expected to need at least two rehab starts before he's an option to rejoin the Rays rotation.
Apr 11 - 8:50 AM

Alex Colome (illness) will throw live BP on Friday.

Colome is working his way back from pneumonia, which has sidelined him for most of the spring. He's making steady progress and remains on track for a mid-April return.
Apr 1 - 9:33 AM

Alex Colome (illness) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

Colome has already been ruled out for the start of the year after pneumonia knocked him down in early March, but it shouldn't be a long-lasting affliction. He's expected back in mid-April.
Mar 28 - 4:38 PM

Rays placed RHP Alex Colome on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with pneumonia.

The 26-year-old hurler spent five days in the hospital earlier in the month while battling the illness and is still working to regain his full strength. He's expected to be ready to join the Rays in mid-April.
