Sources: Twins to sign former White Sox closer Alex Colomé
A day after the Minnesota Twins brought back slugger Nelson Cruz, the team added some pitching help.
Sources confirmed to KSTP Sports on Wednesday that former Chicago White Sox closer Alex Colomé had agreed to a deal with the Twins.
His deal is a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2022, sources said. The deal is for a guaranteed total of $6.25 million with $5 million of that as his 2021 base salary.
Colomé pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays beginning in 2013 before he was dealt to Seattle during the 2018 season. He then spent the past two years with Chicago, totaling 42 saves in 46 chances for the White Sox.
Over his career, Colomé owns a 2.95 ERA over 424.0 innings, with 385 strikeouts, 138 saves, a .228 batting average against and a 1.18 WHIP.
