Phillies Interested in White Sox Closer

It seems that the Philadelphia Phillies are interested in bringing on White Sox closer, Alex Colome. Colome has been lights out for the White Sox this season, recording 21 saves in 22 opportunities.
This trade would greatly benefit the Phillies, whose bullpen is posting a 4.72 ERA, which ranks 22nd in the majors. Honestly, I am not sure what return this would bring back considering the Phillies aren’t willing to part with any high-end prospects (Cough” Alec Bohm) and they are in the midst of a Wild Card run. Another reason this makes sense is that Colome is under control through the 2020 season so he wouldn’t be a rental.
With the injuries that have plagued the Phillies pitching staff this year, they may part with someone worthwhile.
