Mets SP Bartolo Colon dominates Phillies in win Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon was masterful against the Phillies on Monday. The veteran right-hander kept the Phillies off-balance all night, as he fired eight scoreless innings. Colon allowed four hits and a walk while striking out nine, as the Mets went on to win 3-1.

Colon (12-11, 4.42 ERA) is now in the midst of a 16-inning scoreless streak, spanning two starts and a one-inning relief appearance. 

In six August starts, Colon went 3-1 with a 2.90 ERA.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Colon threw a season-high 107 pitches. 


Mets SP Bartolo Colon has swollen forearm; X-rays negative


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Though X-rays were negative on Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon's right forearm, it is significantly swollen, according to ESPN New York.

Colon was hit on the forearm while trying to bunt in the second inning of Friday's game.

"It's a little swollen, but overall I'm OK," Colon said through an interpreter. "It did affect me a little bit, but it's not an excuse. It's got nothing to do with my performance. I'm glad the team picked me up and they came back and we got a key victory."


Mets SP Bartolo Colon gives up seven runs in no-decision Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon was victimized by the effects of Coors Field on Friday, as he allowed seven runs on nine hits over just 3 2/3 innings against the Rockies. Colon was given a 7-1 lead after the second inning, but he gave it all back, as he exited the game with the score tied 8-8 in the fourth.

But the Mets were able to regain the lead, as they went on to out-slug the Rockies 14-9. For Colon, he has given up six or more earned runs in five of his last 11 starts. 

Colon was also hit by a pitch on his right forearm in his first at-bat, but he was able to stay in the game. He underwent an X-ray following the game, which came back negative for a fracture, according to ESPN.com. At this point, he does not appear to be in any danger of missing his next start.

Mets SP Bartolo Colon gets blasted by Padres on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon got roughed up by the Padres in Wednesday's 7-3 loss. Colon was charged for six runs on 10 hits in just 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing in his tenure with the Mets. 

Colon (9-10, 4.96ERA) struggled right out of the gate in this one, as he allowed two runs in each of the first three innings, including third-inning home runs to Justin Upton and Yonder Alonso. 

Colon was coming off his best start of the year, but that came after a couple of sub-par outings for the veteran right-hander. Colon is 0-4 with a 6.99 ERA over his past four starts.


Bartolo Colon improves, but Mets unable to top Dodgers Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/23/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon had much better results on Thursday than he has seen in recent weeks. But he was simply outpitched, as the Mets were blanked 3-0 by Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

Colon went eight innings on Thursday, his longest outing of the season. He allowed one run on five hits, while striking out four and walking none. He was lifted after throwing just 88 pitches (60 strikes). 

The only run Colon allowed was a solo home run to Mets-nemesis Jimmy Rollins in the third inning. Colon, who evened his record to 9-9 on Thursday, lowered his ERA to 4.60 with the performance.

He entered play on Thursday with a 6.18 ERA over his last five starts, so this was a vast improvement for the 42-year-old veteran.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon struggles against Cardinals on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon did not have his best stuff working on Saturday, as he got knocked around by the Cardinals. Colon faced 10 batters and gave up four runs in the first inning, but then he settled in, throwing up zeroes for the next three frames.

But he got into more trouble in the fifth, and allowed three more runs to score. All told, Colon lasted 4 1/3 innings, and was charged with seven runs on eight hits. He walked three and struck out five in an outing that lifted his ERA to 4.86.

"It's all command with him," manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com. "Bartolo does not change the way he pitches. Primarily fastball, with a mix of some changeups and some sliders, but when he commands the fastball, the other stuff is just an accent. And when he doesn't command the fastball, he's not the kind of a guy who's going to go strictly offspeed, he just doesn't pitch like that, and tonight he just didn't have the command."

Colon (9-8) has faced the Cardinals twice this season, and has given up a total of 17 earned runs in 8 2/3 innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom will pitch in the second series after the break against the Nationals, which starts Monday. It is not known yet who will open the three-game series.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon allows 10 hits in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) While Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon did not surrender a home run during Tuesday's start at San Francisco, the 10 hits he allowed were his undoing during the 3-0 loss.

Colon allowed three runs (two earned) over six innings of work. He also struck out four and did not walk a batter. He is now 9-7 with a 4.46 ERA.

Colon is now winless in his last four starts despite producing a quality start in each of his last two starts.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon solid in no-decision against Cubs


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon enjoyed a solid outing in what turned out to be a no-decision against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Mets going to six-man rotation, Steven Matz to debut Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz will make his MLB debut Sunday against the Reds, general manager Sandy Alderson announced Friday.

Alderson also said the team will go to a six-man rotation for the "foreseeable future," as Matz will join a rotation that features Bartolo Colon, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.

"They're on board," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "As Sandy alluded to, certainly this is in their best interest, a few of them. At the time we did it before things were moving pretty good, guys were pitching pretty well. We went back, we changed it, couple guys didn't pitch all that good even on regular rest.

"They understand we're going to give this a shot, we're going to take a good strong look at it. It's to benefit the whole organization, basically, so that we look up and everybody is pitching. We're not pushing guys back, we're not skipping, guys are out there and competing. That's what they want to do."    

Matz's arrival means Niese will get bumped from Sunday to Tuesday against the Cubs.

Matz, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 33) and MLB.com (No. 66), went 7-4 with a 2.19 ERA at Triple-A Las Vegas. He totaled 94 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.

Since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2012, the left-hander is 24-20 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 365 2/3 innings. He is striking out 9.4 batters per nine innings in his career.


Mets P Bartolo Colon allows 4 runs, 10 hits in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Colon went six innings and gave up 10 hits and one walk while striking out three batters. Troubling for Colon is that he's now surrendered 10 earned runs over his past two games. Falling to 9-6, Colon has now lost three of his last four starts. 

Colon has a 4.89 ERA this season. 


Mets SP Bartolo Colon allows six runs in losing effort


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/18/2015) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon allowed six earned runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Colon (9-5) threw 4 1/3 innings, allowing nine hits and six earned runs. He allowed a home run to Blue Jays left fielder Chris Colabello at the top of the fifth inning, which ended his day.

The poor performance elevated Colon's ERA to 4.81 on the season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Both runs Colon surrendered came in the fifth inning, but he never trailed at any point in the game, and managed to pick up his ninth victory of the season as the Mets went on to win 5-3. 

Colon (9-4, 4.41 ERA) will make his next start Thursday in Toronto.


Mets alter rotation plans, Dillon Gee to start Sunday vs. Braves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Dillon Gee is headed back to the Mets rotation for at least one start, as the team announced Friday he will start Sunday against the Braves. Noah Syndergaard, who was scheduled to start Sunday, has been pushed back to Monday against the Blue Jays.

Matt Harvey is now the probable pitcher for Tuesday, and he is expected to be followed in the rotation by Jonathon Niese, Bartolo Colon and Jacob deGrom.

The Mets are going to use a "light" six-man rotation, meaning they will slot in Gee when they can, according to ESPN.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon loses despite strong outing


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) For a while Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has everything going for him against the Diamondbacks. But he then allowed a two-run home run to Wellington Castillo, which proved to be the difference in the 2-1 loss on Saturday.

Colon (8-4) struck out seven batters, allowed five hits and two earned runs. 

On the season, Colon has a 4.52 ERA with 61 strikeouts in 75 2/3 innings.


Mets P Bartolo Colon earns eighth win of the season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon allowed three earned runs in Sunday afternoon's 4-3 win over the Marlins. 

Colon struck out two batters and walked one on six hits. He improves to 8-3 for the season. The two strikeouts tied a season-low for a single game this year. Colon has his issues, given his 4.72 ERA.

However, he's gotten out to eight wins as his run support has averaged 5.1 in each victory.  Colon also ripped an RBI double to help his own cause. 

"He has taken the offensive side seriously," manager Terry Collins said to NJ.com. "He and [assistant hitting coach] Pat Roessler are in the cages everyday. Hopefully he keeps it going a little bit."

Colon's next start is projected for Saturday against the Diamondbacks. 


Rivals teams prefer Mets' Bartolo Colon over Dillon Gee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) The Mets are still keeping starting pitcher Dillon Gee on the trade market, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, his injury history limits his value.

Also, rival teams seem to prefer acquiring veteran Bartolo Colon.

"He takes the ball every fifth day and throws strikes," a rival executive said of Colon.


Mets planning to use six-man rotation into August


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Once Dillon Gee joins the Mets rotation after his last rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton, the team plans to go to a six-man rotation through at least early August, pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday.

Warthen said the goal is to have the starters make roughly 30 starts instead of the usual 33 during the regular season. The team also wants to be conservative with some of the younger arms -- Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. The other two pitchers in the rotation are veterans Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese.

"It is better for the player. It's better for the organization, at least, until we get to where we feel like we have plenty of innings left in September and still have the possibility of innings left in October," Warthen said, per ESPN.

"Our No. 1 concern is our pitchers, and our pitchers staying healthy. We have some other [young] ones -- [prospect Steven] Matz is coming along. We're going to have Syndergaard here, deGrom here, Harvey here. Those are the guys who are the big concerns. As for the other guys, they have to go along with it. It's going to only prolong their careers. From the organization's standpoint, from my standpoint, I think it's a smart thing to do."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"I surprised myself that I'm pitching the way I'm pitching. I've been happy," Colon said through a translator to ESPN.com. "I felt great today. Everything was good.”

Colon, now 7-3, moved his ERA to 4.82 in 61 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Sunday against the Marlins.
