|Bartolo Colon named Friday starter |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon will be the starter in San Diego Friday for the team's first game after the All-Star break, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Colon turned in a quality start in his last outing after giving up five earned runs in two straight starts. He owns a 3.99 ERA and 89:17 K:BB ratio in 121 2/3 innings.
|Bartolo Colon can't come up with a win Thursday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon lasted eight innings Thursday against the Braves.
Colon gave up three runs on 10 hits over eight innings. He did not issue a walk, and struck out seven during the appearance. The Braves did most of their damage early against Colon. After giving up a single to Andrelton Simmons, Colon allowed Freddie Freeman to belt an RBI double. Two hitters later, Jason Heyward managed to drive Freeman home.
The third run came in the third inning, after two consecutive singles, Justin Upton grounded into a double-play, which would up scoring a run. Over the next five innings, Colon allowed just three hits.
The loss dropped Colon to 8-8 on the year. He’ll make his next start shortly after the All-Star break.
|Bartolo Colon hit with second straight loss |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/5/14) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon was pegged with his second straight loss Saturday night at home against the Rangers. The 41-year-old veteran was charged with five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over seven innings of a 5-3 defeat.
Colon owns a 4.04 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 17 starts (113 2/3 innings). He will look to avoid a three-start losing skid Thursday at home against the Braves.
|Report: Mets willing to hear offers for Bartolo Colon |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/3/14) The Mets are willing to listen to offers for pitcher Bartolo Colon, according to the New York Post.
With just four weeks until the trade deadline, the Mets may even be willing to actively shop the veteran. Colon signed a $20 million contract for two years last offseason, but the deal does not contain a no-trade clause. The Mets may be more willing to move him now than they once were, with a crowded rotation full of young options for next season.
Colon is 8-6 with a 3.88 ERA in 16 starts for the Mets.
|Bartolo Colon suffers first loss in nine starts |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/29/14) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon suffered his first loss in nearly two months during a 5-2 loss Sunday at Pittsburgh. The right-handed hurler allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk, while striking out two in six innings.
Colon (8-6), who last lost May 6 at Miami, got off to a rough start Sunday. The Pirates took an early 2-0 lead on Ike Davis' two-RBI single with one out in the first inning. Two batters later, Pedro Alvarez made it 3-0 with an RBI double.
The game stayed 3-0 until Alvarez unloaded a two-run homer off Colon with no outs in the fourth inning. Colon put two more runners on base in the inning, but he escaped without any further damage. The veteran right-hander retired the final seven batters he faced Sunday, but the damage was already done.
Colon had entered play Sunday 6-0 with a 2.37 ERA in his previous eight starts. He is expected to be back on the hill Saturday against the Rangers. Colon is 4-2 with a 2.11 ERA in six home starts.
Grading the first half: A's flying
What if we gave grades to every single team for the first half of the 2014 season? The A's would come out on top, that's what.
DeGrom leads Mets at plate and mound in win
NEW YORK (AP) Mets manager Terry Collins quickly changed out of his uniform and met the media in slacks and a purple polo shirt Sunday, in a hurry to make his All-Star break flight.
DeGrom fuels Mets at plate, on mound vs. Marlins
Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings, David Wright doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of Miami with a 9-1 victory on Sunday.

Big hits off bench lift Mets over Marlins 5-4
NEW YORK (AP) Step by step, the improving New York Mets are building momentum for the second half.
|No longer so committed to conditioning at age 40, Bartolo Colon was only as large as he was in charge for the Athletics last year, winning 18 games with a 2.65 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 190 1/3 innings -- insane numbers for a player his age, with skills so diminished. It explains why he got a two-year, $20 million offer from the Mets, who view him as a stabilizing change-of-pace in a rotation steadily growing in flame-throwing youngsters. Once a flamethrower himself, but certainly not anymore, Colon makes up for a lack of stuff with immaculate control. His rate of 1.4 walks per nine innings, the same as he had in 2012, ranked fourth among qualifying pitchers, behind only established aces Adam Wainwright, David Price and Cliff Lee. His strike-throwing ways not only keep runners off base, allowing him to survive a relatively high hit rate, but also limit his pitch count, making him remarkably durable for a player his age. He spent some time on the DL with a groin injury in mid-August but basically missed only one start. Of course, Colon will have a harder time winning games with the Mets than he did with the Athletics, and like any 40-something-year-old, he's a ticking time bomb. But if he slides to the late rounds, he could prove to be a bargain yet again.
