Colomé will be paid $5 million in 2021 with a mutual option for $5.5 million in 2022 or a $1.25 million buyout, a source told Feinsand.
The 32-year-old Colomé could step in the closer role for Minnesota after Taylor Rogers and Sergio Romo split closing duties in 2020. Rogers remains with the club, but Romo is a free agent.
Colomé recorded a 0.81 ERA with a 0.94 WHIP and 12 saves in 22 1/3 innings last season for the White Sox, who signed closer Liam Hendriks to a four-year deal. The right-handed Colomé has notched 138 saves since the beginning of 2016, ranking third in MLB behind Kenley Jansen and Edwin Díaz during that span.
Over eight big league seasons with the Rays, Mariners and White Sox, Colomé has registered a 2.95 ERA with 385 strikeouts and 140 walks in 424 innings.
