The Twins are signing free-agent reliever Alex Colome to a one-year deal, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network. The contract includes a $5MM salary for 2021 and an option. In all, it’s a $6.25MM guarantee, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
Interesting why White Sox didn’t sign him. Here’s his career.
Alex Colome 2013-2020
His 2020 season was pretty good for a relief pitcher despite what WAR said. $5M isn’t bad for a top tier reliever. We’ll see how this acquisition pays off for the Twins as this season unfolds.
