Rays | Alex Colome to remain in rotation?

Sun, 10 May 2015 06:16:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome will likely remain in the starting for the foreseeable future. Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) may require season-ending surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Colome ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will likely remain in the rotation at least until Matt Moore returns. With an xFIP of 1.86 and a K/9 of 9.00, Colome has a high-upside on FantasyScore and should be considered whenever he takes the mound. Colome needs to be rostered in all standard leagues.

Rays | Alex Colome set to rejoin rotation

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 13:20:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome (illness) will rejoin the starting rotation in the series against the Baltimore Orioles which begins Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Take a wait-and-see approach with Colome ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) in FantasyScore contests. He has a nice pedigree and upside, but just 39 2/3 innings of experience at the major league level. At best, Colome is worth a speculative flier in deep seasonal leagues, but with a rotation spot, he should be owned in all AL-only leagues.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome (pneumonia) has been hospitalized due to pneumonia, according to manager Kevin Cash. He is expected to be released from the hospital Saturday, March 14, or Sunday, March 15.
