White Sox choose Alex Colome to close

Chicago White Sox reliever Alex Colome will be the club's closer, manager Rick Renteria announced.

What It Means:

Colome has looked like the favorite to win the job over Kelvin Herrera for the past couple months. The 30-year-old right-hander was a winter acquisition from the Seattle Mariners.

numberFire's models expect Colome to record a 3.18 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 69 strikeouts and 20 walks while converting 15 saves over 65 innings this season.
