Description: Mets starter Bartolo Colon is questionable for his next start on Saturday due to a back injury, according to the New York Daily News.
Insight: Colon dealt with the issue during Sunday's start and ended up allowing four homers and nine earned runs in five innings against the Angels.
 
4/13/2014 9:37:00 PM
Description: Mets starter Bartolo Colon served up four big flies to the Angels on Sunday.
Insight: Colon only gave up 14 HRs in 190 1/3 innings with the Athletics last year; he has allowed six in 18 this year. The right-hander went 2-0 with a 1.20 ERA against the Angels in 2013 but they crushed their former AL West counterpart on Sunday.
 
4/8/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Mets starter Bartolo Colon shut out the Braves over seven innings Tuesday to earn his first win with the team.
Insight: Colon scattered five hits and had a 5/0 K/BB. The 30-year-old walked just 29 batters in 190 1/3 innings last season and went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.

Insight: Colon had one of his best seasons in 2013, going 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 30 starts for the A's. He'll be 42 when his contract expires.
 
12/2/2013 8:32:00 PM
Description: Now that the A's have signed lefthander Scott Kazmir, they're probably out of the running for Bartolo Colon. SOURCE: Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: In an unusual move, Billy Beane opened up his pocket book and forked over $22 million for Kazmir, who figures to be a four or five starter at best. Given the team's tight budget, Colon is probably out of the equation. The 40-year-old had a resurgent season in 2013 and shouldn't have any difficulty securing a new contract.
 
Hot10/1/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Bartolo Colon will start Game 1 of the ALDS Friday against the Detroit Tigers. SOURCE: Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: Colon finished second in the American League with both a 2.65 ERA and 18 wins. In two starts against the Tigers this season, Colon threw 12 innings, allowed four runs on 15 hits and struck out six with no walks.
 
Hot9/28/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Athletics starter Bartolo Colon struck out eight and allowed two runs on three hits over six innings in his final start of the regular season Friday against the Mariners.
Insight: The 40-year-old went 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in his final four starts and won 18 games with six losses, a 2.65 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and a 1.37 BB/9 on the year. His performance really came out of nowhere after he went just 32-40 with a 4.38 ERA in 573 2/3 innings from 2006-12 and was suspended for PED use last season.
 
Hot9/21/2013 9:23:00 AM
Description: A's ace Bartolo Colon stayed hot by tossing six shutout innings Friday in a win over Minnesota.
Insight: The 40-year-old has been brilliant down the stretch. Over his three-game win streak, he's held opponents to one run in 20 innings. His strikeout to walk ratio over that span is 22 to three.
 
Hot9/14/2013 8:15:00 PM
Description: Oakland starter Bartolo Colon fired eight scoreless frames Saturday in a win over Texas.
Insight: Colon hit a rough patch right after the All-Star break but he's been brilliant since coming off the DL on August 29th. Over that span, he's 2-1 with a 1.13 ERA in 24 innings. The 16 wins Colon has collected this season are his most since 2005 when he won the Cy Young Award for Anaheim (21-8 that season).
 
8/29/2013 7:33:00 PM
Description: A's righthander Bartolo Colon pitched well in his return from a strained groin Thursday against the Tigers (5 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 K, 0 BB).
Insight: He would have picked up the win too, if not for Torii Hunter's game-winning homer in the ninth inning. Colon's numbers this year are a bit puzzling. Though he boasts a strong ERA (2.94 in 25 starts), opponents have actually hit pretty well against him (.270 AVG). Colon's next start is Tuesday against Texas.
 
8/27/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: The Athletics have confirmed that Bartolo Colon (groin) will start Thursday at Detroit, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com.
Insight: Colon lost two straight starts and posted a 13.50 ERA prior to going on the disabled list with a groin injury, but he had gone 11-1 with a 1.69 ERA in 15 starts before that.
 
8/26/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Oakland ace Bartolo Colon expects to return Thursday against Detroit. SOURCE: Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: Colon was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained groin. The 40-year-old righthander got off to an excellent start (12-3, 2.70 ERA before the All-Star break) but hasn't been able to keep it up in the second half (2-2, 4.23).
 
Cold8/17/2013 7:14:00 PM
Description: The A's have placed starter Bartolo Colon on the 15-day DL.
Insight: Colon has been bothered by a strained left groin. That might explain why he's struggled over his past two outings (0-2, 13.50 ERA).
 
8/7/2013 7:29:00 PM
Description: Oakland starter Bartolo Colon had one of his worst outings of the season Wednesday against the Reds (2 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 3 BB).
Insight: Colon (14-4, 2.75 ERA) can usually throw in the mid-90s but today his fastball never reached higher than 91. Manager Bob Melvin said a stomach bug may have had something to do with his struggles. Wednesday's loss ended a 15-game quality start streak for the veteran.
 
Hot8/5/2013 2:15:00 PM
Description: According to a Ken Rosenthal report, Bartolo Colon will not be hit with any further suspension.
Insight: The 40-year-old has gone 14-3 with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP this season after being suspended for 50 games last year.
 
Hot7/30/2013 8:42:00 PM
Description: According to Yahoo! Sports, the players involved with Biogenesis who already have been suspended for positive tests in the past -- Bartolo Colon, Yasmani Grandal and Melky Cabrera -- are likely to avoid another suspension.
Insight: Colon is the big fantasy name here. The 40-year-old has gone 14-3 with a 2.54 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP this season after being suspended for 50 games last year.
 
Hot7/21/2013 7:33:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Bartolo Colon continues to amaze -- the 40-year-old fired a four-hit shutout Sunday against the Angels.
Insight: Colon has posted a 1.43 ERA in 88 1/3 innings over his last 12 starts and gone 10-1 in that span. The right-hander has walked just 1.06 batters per nine innings this season and is 13-3 with a 2.52 ERA. Colon has done it by throwing his fastball 84.4 percent of the time, the highest rate in the majors by more than 10 percentage points.
 
Hot7/1/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Athletics starter Bartolo Colon went 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA in June and has won eight straight starts.
Insight: Colon posted a 1.37 ERA and a 1.68 BB/9 during his winning streak. He has surprisingly bounced back from his 50-game suspension last year and is 11-2 with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
 
Hot6/5/2013 7:55:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Bartolo Colon limited the Brewers to eight hits and one earned run over seven innings Wednesday to improve to 7-2 on the year.
