Report: Bartolo Colon going nowhere


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A team insider told the Post that the Mets are hoping not to assume any of that money even if it results in a better prospect coming back.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Bartolo Colon suffers first loss in nine starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Barton Colon tosses eight one-run innings for eighth win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon cruised to a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on four hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out eight in his team's 10-1 blowout of the A's.

Colon (8-5) gave up a run on two hits in the first inning but was brilliant over the remainder of the game, retiring the last 10 batters he faced. He hasn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his last seven starts, dropping his ERA to 3.67 to go along with a 77:14 K:BB ratio in 100 2/3 innings. Colon is slated to face the Pirates Sunday.


Bartolo Colon an underowned Fantasy option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon heads to the mound Tuesday against the A's looking for his sixth straight decision. Colon is a player featured in this week's Waiver Wire column because he deserves to be owned in more than just 74 percent of Fantasy leagues.

Colon's early season struggles were really magnified by the Mets woes on offense and just three really bad starts from the veteran right-hander against the Angels, Rockies and Yankees, where he allowed at least six earned runs. In his other five starts through May 12, he allowed three runs or fewer. 

Though, Colon has been pretty remarkable as of late. He is 5-0 with a 1.66 ERA in his last six starts. Maybe Colon isn't that good of a pitcher, but just look at his Fantasy production. Colon has totaled at least 28 Fantasy points in five of the last six scoring periods, and over the last 28 days he's the sixth-highest ranked pitcher (including relievers) in Rotisserie formats. Last season, Colon was a top 15 Fantasy starting pitcher in Head-to-Head leagues and a top 20 pitcher in Roto formats.

Maybe the Mets won't be contenders this year, but Colon has proven lately that it doesn't matter because he can pitch well enough to earn wins regardless.


Bartolo Colon brilliant again in stifling St. Louis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Mets aging right-hander Bartolo Colon might consider his ringing double and run scored in the fourth inning to be the highlight of his afternoon Wednesday, but it was his work on the mound against the Cardinals that really shined.

Colon settled down after yielding a leadoff home run to Matt Carpenter in the first to pitch shutout ball the rest of the way. He gave up just four hits in eight innings with no walks and one strikeout to raise his record to 7-5 and lower his ERA to 3.88. He has won five straight decisions and surrendered a mere eight earned runs in his last six starts.

He is set to start again Tuesday against Oakland.


Bartolo Colon jumps back over .500 with win over Padres


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon put together a dominant outing Friday night against the Padres, earning his sixth win of the season. The right-hander permitted two earned runs on four hist and one walk while striking out seven in 7 1/3 innings of a 6-2 victory.

Over his last five starts covering 35 1/3 innings, Colon (6-5) has allowed only seven earned runs. He owns a 4.15 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP through 13 starts (84 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at St. Louis.
