Waiver Wire: Drawing a Blanks
Gerrit Cole is getting all of the attention off the waiver wire, but there are still plenty of other solid options to consider. Our Nando Di Fino talks up Kyle Blanks, Tyler Colvin and others.
|Through mid-August, Bartolo Colon was making his one-year, $2 million deal look like a masterstroke for the Athletics. In 24 starts, Colon had garnered 10 wins with a 3.43 ERA, and he saved the bullpen by being highly efficient and going deep into games. Unfortunately, two dozen starts were all Colon gave the A's, as Major League Baseball handed down a 50-game suspension for a positive test for testosterone. He not only missed the last month and a half of the regular season and the entire postseason, but Colon will also miss the first five games of the 2013 schedule. That won't impact his value much, but it remains to be seen whether Colon can master the strike zone as effectively as he did last season. While Colon was worth starting in standard mixed leagues at times in 2012, he is best left to owners in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues this time around. (Updated 12/4/12)|
