Colon expects short stint on DL

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Bartolo ColonThe Yankees have placed Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list, but the veteran right-hander doesn't expect to miss any more than 15 days.

"I feel good -- I just have a little bit of pain," Colon told reporters, including Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record. "After 15 days, I'll be back."

If Colon is correct, he'll miss just two starts with his left hamstring injuries. He would be eligible to start against June 28 against Milwaukee.

Colon left Saturday's game in the seventh inning after feeling "a tug" in the hamstring while covering first base.

The team also placed right-hander Amauri Sanit on the disabled list with an elbow injury and called up right-hander Hector Noesi and outfielder Chris Dickerson.
