Bartolo Colon improves to 4-0 as Mets run win streak to 11 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon improved to 4-0 through his first four starts, as the Mets defeated the Braves, 6-3, for an 11th straight win Thursday. 

Colon (4-0) allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks. He struck out five in six innings. He now has 23 strikeouts to just one walk in 26 innings. He has not issued a walk in three straight starts.

The Braves got a run off Colon in the second inning on Andrelton Simmons' RBI double. They added two more runs in the fourth to tie the game at 3 on an RBI single from Simmons and a sac fly from Jace Peterson.

The Mets went ahead in the fifth inning and Colon threw two scoreless innings to finish off his outing Thursday.

The veteran right-hander admitted to pitching with a blister on his right hand Thursday.

"It only bothered me on breaking pitches," he said, per MLB.com. "But I don't use those, so it didn't bother me at all."

He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Miami since the Mets will be using a sixth starter in Rafael Montero on Tuesday at Miami.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon picks up third win of season Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon produced his third-consecutive solid outing of the season to defeat the Marlins on Friday. 

Colon pitched seven innings while giving up one run on six hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out five. He is now 3-0 on the season.

"Now I'm a better pitcher because I can command the situation a lot better than when I used to," Colon said, per MLB.com

By getting his third win of the season, Colon became the fifth pitcher in the last 60 years to win each of his first three (or more) starts of a season at age 41 or older, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

His lone blemish was a first-inning home run to Giancarlo Stanton. His next scheduled start is expected to be Thursday against the Braves.

Colon, who turns 42 next month, will try to reach that feat Friday night at home against Miami.

Colon went 1-1 with a 2.45, a 1.36 WHIP and 12:1 K:BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings against Miami last season. He owns a 2.77 ERA, a 0.76 WHIP and 13:1 K:BB ratio over 13 innings of work to start the season.


Mets' Bartolo Colon strikes out five in win vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon allowed three earned runs on six hits in seven innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 4-3 win over the Braves.

Colon (2-0) appeared to let the win slip away after serving up a solo home run in the seventh inning, but the Mets were able to score a run in the top of the eighth to retake the lead for good. Colon also put his team ahead in the fourth inning with an RBI single. As he didn't manage an RBI in his first season in New York, it was the first time he drove in a run with his bat since the 2005 season.

Colon will look for a third straight quality start Friday against the Marlins.

"It was the best location I had all spring," Colon said, per MLB.com's Paul Hagen.

"I thought he made some really, really good pitches," manager Terry Collins said of Colon's 72-pitch outing. "That's what you want to see out of him. He just continues to pitch to the corners and the four quadrants. ... He's right on track to have another big year."

Report: Bartolo Colon in the running to start opening day for Mets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) The Mets are strongly considering veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon for the opening day start April 6 at Washington, multiple sources told ESPN. The sources added the Mets have narrowed the choices to Colon and one other pitcher, who was not named.

If Colon, who went 15-13 with a 4.09 ERA in 2014, gets the nod, then he would become the oldest pitcher (41 years, 317 days old) to start on opening day in the majors since Jamie Moyer (43 years, 136 days) and Randy Johnson (42 years, 205 days) in 2006. He also would become the oldest Mets' opening day starter, surpassing Tom Glavine in 2007 (41 years, 7 days). 

Colon has started six times on opening day. Dillon Gee started on opening day for the Mets last season.


Report: Dillon Gee 'could be traded' by Mets in spring


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) Mets RHP Dillon Gee was the subject of offseason trade rumors. That's understandable, since he arrived at spring training as one of six established starting pitchers on the Mets' staff. 

The other candidates for the Mets' rotation are: LHP Zack Wheeler, 41-year-old RHP Bartolo Colon, LHP Jon Niese , RHP Jacob deGrom, who won last season's NL Rookie of the Year award and RHP Matt Harvey, returning after missing last year with arm surgery.

A source told ESPN New York that, although there wasn't much trade talk on the first day of camp, Gee "could be traded" during the spring, if the right deal came along.

Colon is also a candidate to be traded to clear the logjam in the starting rotation.  

If the team keeps all six pitchers, Gee is the leading candidate to be sent to the bullpen for long relief and the occasional spot start. 

Gee was 7-8, with a 4.00 ERA in 22 starts for the Mets last year. In his five MLB seasons, all with the Mets, he's 40-34, 3.91. His last relief appearance was in 2011. 


Report: Three to four teams still in on Mets SP Dillon Gee


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Three to four clubs still remain interested in Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, sourced told Mike Puma of the New York Post. Jonathon Niese and Bartolo Colon are still "long-shots" to be traded, per the report.

Gee settled for $5.3 million next season prior to Friday's arbitration deadline. He finished last season 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA, marking the third time in four years his ERA has reached that level.


Report: Mets expect SP trade talks to heat up, Gee top target


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) The Mets are expecting trade talks to pick up for starting pitchers Dillon Gee, Jonathon Niese and Bartolo Colon, a team source told the New York Post.

Gee appears to be the most likely candidate to be traded. New York was trying to deal him at the Winter Meetings in December. The Mets appear hesitant to trade Niese because he might be the only left-handed candidate for the rotation.

The source said if the Mets can't make a trade, there is a chance the team would go to spring training with six starters and have one of them potentially open the 2015 season in the bullpen.


Mets GM Alderson: We're not looking to trade SP Bartolo Colon


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters he's not interested in moving 41-year-old right-hander Bartolo Colon this offseason. He clarified he's still listening to offers for Colon, but may likely hold back on trading his veteran starter. Colon went 15-13 with a 4.09 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and 151:30 K:BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings.

"We like Bartolo...Frankly, we're not looking to trade him," Alderson said, per the Star-Ledger.


Mets fielding trade inquiries about Gee, Colon and Niese


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The Mets are fielding trade inquiries on starting pitchers Dillon Gee, Jonathon Niese and Bartolo Colon, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The expectation is one of the pitchers will be traded soon.

Report: Mets may pick up some of Bartolo Colon's contract in deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) The Mets appear less insistent that an acquiring team pick up the full $11 million pitcher Bartolo Colon is owed in 2015, the New York Post reports.

The Mets may be looking to deal a pitcher during the Winter Meetings to help alleviate a crowded rotation, and it appears they could be willing to kick in some cash to facilitate a Colon deal. Other candidates to be traded include Jonathon Niese and Dillon Gee, according to the report.

The Mets will also be looking for left-handed relief help as well as a potential upgrade at shortstop next week. The team could also explore adding a right-handed bat to fill a reserve role.
