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.
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
Hopefully Werth will be ok after getting hit in the head. There is likely a suspension looming for Colon in the near future. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Colon improved to 13-11 after Friday night's solid performance, this coming after surrendering six runs to the Phillies back on August 30. He is now sitting on a 3.96 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through 27 starts while maintaining a 134:23 K:BB rate over 179.2 innings. Although he has not been very consistent this season, he is still someone to turn to every time he takes the mound considering how few walks he is giving up on a regular basis. Colon will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Rockies on Wednesday. Analyst: Matthew Beck
