Colome could potentially be the White Sox closer in 2019. He led the American League with 47 saves in 2017.
"We view Alex as a terrific addition to our bullpen given his experience in a number of relief roles, including closing very successfully for Tampa Bay in 2016-18 before moving into a setup role with the Mariners," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said of Colome. "Alex is going to be a very important bullpen piece for (White Sox manager) Ricky (Renteria) and our team over the next couple of years."
Colome, who turns 30 on Dec. 31, was 7-5 with a 3.04 ERA and 12 saves in 70 appearances last season with the Rays and Mariners. He has 96 career saves along with a 22-18 record and 3.12 ERA in 243 appearances (19 starts) over six seasons.
"Omar has quietly developed into one of the tougher outs among catchers in MLB, his contact and on-base skills are welcome additions to our lineup," Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said in statement. "The fact that he is also under club control through 2022 made him a great fit for our club."
Narvaez will likely be the replacement for the departed Mike Zunino, who was traded to Tampa Bay earlier this month.
Seattle also recently traded left-handed ace James Paxton to the New York Yankees and is reportedly close to a deal that would send second baseman Robinson Cano and right-handed closer Edwin Diaz to the New York Mets.
