Tampa Bay RaysEdit
On March 24, 2014, Colomé was suspended 50 games for failing a random drug test. Colome ended the year 2-0 with a 2.66 ERA in 5 games, 3 of which were starts. Colomé saw his first significant playing time in 2015, most of it due to a switch to the bullpen, where he finished with 43 appearances and a 3.94 ERA.
In 2016, Colomé was named the full-time closer for the Rays due to an injury to Brad Boxberger. He kept the role as closer. He finished the season with 37 saves, fourth in the AL, and ended the season with a 1.91 ERA. Colome was also selected to his first career All-Star game.
