The Philadelphia Phillies are continuing to show interest in White Sox closer, Álex Colomé, per Jon Morosi.
Colomé has been a stud out of the White Sox bullpen this year, posting a 2.27 ERA in 39.2 innings pitched. On top of the good ERA he has 31 strikeouts with a 1.7 WAR. This would be an outstanding pickup for the Phillies as they are currently sitting at 22nd in the MLB in bullpen ERA with a 4.72. Colomé’s contract will be up after this season.
The Phillies are currently 6.5 games out of first place in the NL East and 1.0 games out of the wildcard.
