The St. Louis Cardinals have an obvious need for a closer after releasing Trevor Rosenthal, and with Seung-Hwan Oh being a free agent this winter. So they're taking steps toward finding their next relief pitcher.
The 28-year-old is eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career this offseason, and he doesn't become a free agent until 2021. The right-hander is coming off a season in which he had a 3.24 ERA with 47 saves and 58 strikeouts. He had a 1.91 ERA in 2016.
Colome has spent his entire career with the Rays but could help fill a much-needed void for the Cardinals, if an agreement could be reached.
