Source: #Phillies showing continued interest in #WhiteSox closer Álex Colomé. @MLB @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 29, 2019Colome, who is in his first season with the White Sox, holds a 3-1 record with a 2.27 ERA and 21 saves in 40 appearances. He was an All-Star while with the Rays in 2016 and has also pitched for the Mariners over his seven-year career.The Phillies, meanwhile, entered the season with high expectations after signing Bryce Harper and trading for JT Realmuto. But, they’ve been inconsistent so far and came into play Monday one game out of the second wild-card spot. Philadelphia also trailed the Braves by 6 1/2 games in the National League East race.

The Phillies could be looking to upgrade their bullpen.Philadelphia is “showing continued interest” in White Sox closer Alex Colome, according to a report from MLB Network, which cites an unidentified league source. “We’re a talented club that has yet to come together all at once,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters over the weekend, via NBC Sports Philadelphia. “We’ve seen stretches of good play. I believe we have a strong run in us in the second half of the season. I think we’re positioned well.“I maintain that our job is to develop the players that we have in the room. It’s not to speculate on what’s happening outside (at the trade deadline). I trust 100% that our front office is going to do everything they can to improve our club.”The Phillies acquired Mets starter Jason Vargas on Monday in exchange for a low-level prospect. General manager Matt Klentak said last week the team might focus on making supplemental moves before the July 31 trade deadline. MLB trade rumors: Mets deal Jason Vargas to Phillies
