Alex Colome Gets Bullpen Demotion


The Minnesota Twins are in the midst of an April free fall that’s reached panic proportion for many fans across the state. Alex Colome has helped fuel that downfall, surrendering 13 runs in 8 innings (only 6 earned) while posting a -1.4 WAR, 13.5 HR/9, 1.750 WHIP and a 5.85 FIP. Gross.

Finally, Rocco Baldelli is waving the white flag on the Alex Colome experiment, announcing today that he will be demoted into a lower-leverage role inside of the Twins bullpen.

Buxton Back

In more good news, Byron Buxton is back in the lineup where he will bat 3rd tonight and play centerfield. Buxton missed yesterday’s game wit “patella tendonitis” (sore knee) and Baldelli told reporters that Buxton has dealt with pain in his knee all season.
