Latest Update Mets willing to eat Colon sized portion of Bartolo's contract Fri Jul, 25, 12:45 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.
Wow. a whole $2 million? That's awfully generous, Mets. Depending on who comes calling, they might have to kick in a bit more cash here.Analyst: Howard Bender
Colon picked u phis first win of the month on Wednesday, improving to 9-8 with a 4.03 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through 20 starts. Although his solid production from his day with the A's has yet to translate to the National League, Colon has managed to increase his strikeouts (6.72 K/9) while continuing to keep his walks at a minimum (19 BB through 134.0 IP). Outside of the ERA category, Colon can be a beneficial piece in most fantasy formats as long as he can remain healthy. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Phillies his next time on the mound. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Colon has been struggling of late, having surrendered 17 earned runs over his last four starts, resulting in an 0-3 stretch. He remains with a .500 record (8-8), but outside of the wins column his 4.12 ERA and 6.75 K/9 leave much to be desired. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Mariners on Wednesday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Well, who knows if that's actually true, but we'll take it as the truth for right now. The Mets aren't going anywhere this year and Colon could slide into the backend of a rotation and provide immediate help. At age 41, Colon doesn't have many miles left and would probably welcome the chance to play for a contender.Analyst: David Kerr
