Former Stone Crab Colome Excels in Major League Debut

Alex Colome

Former Stone Crab Alex Colome, after initially being called up from Durham on Wednesday for bullpen use, was instead given the start Thursday night for the Rays. With Colome’s help, the Rays edged over the Miami Marlins with a 5-2 victory.

Colome did not disappoint in his debut on the mound. The right-hander allowed only one unearned run and five hits over 5 and 2/3 innings, gaining his first major league victory with the Rays’ win.

Signed in 2007, Colome was a product of the Dominican Republic and has spent his entire professional career thus far in the Tampa Bay organization. On each team he has put up quality numbers, including a 3.66 ERA and 92 strikeouts over 19 games with the Stone Crabs in 2011. That same year, Colome was named a Florida State League All-Star and received a promotion to the Montgomery Biscuits.
