Latest Update Bartolo Colon improved to 15-13 after giving up three runs on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in the Mets victory over the Astros on Sunday. Sun Sep, 28, 04:34 PM
With a heater reaching the mid-to-late-90's, he's very tough to hit when able to mix in even a few off-speed pitches. Has a work horse mentality.
Flaws: : Has always had trouble keeping his weight in check. Doesn't have the same stamina as in years past. Has been prone to injuries. His strikeouts are in decline.
Colon's first season in New York was not nearly as good as his previous two in Oakland, but he did top 200 innings for the first time since 2005. Better days could be ahead in 2015, as Colon's 3.57 FIP and 3.68 xFIP are much better than his 4.09 ERA.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Not a great outing for Colon, but he will get the chance to redeem himself on Sunday when the Mets play their final game of the season against Houston.Analyst: David Kerr
Though Colon was quite hittable on Tuesday night, he was able to limit the damage and ultimately had a very solid game. He continues to defy his age and has put together a fairly decent season. Unless he is traded this offseason, he will be back with the Mets next year.Analyst: David Kerr
This start was a mess from the beginning for Colon. He has a nice matchup at home against the Marlins Tuesday, though his upside is limited and he is always a risky play.Analyst: Steve Pimental
