    • Twins' Bartolo Colon: Grabs win in season finale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colon (7-14) allowed a single run on three hits and a walk while striking out four batters through 6.1 innings to take the win against Detroit on Sunday. The 44-year-old veteran will wrap up the regular season with a 5.18 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 5.6 K/9. While Colon managed to spin a number of solid outings throughout the year, his final numbers showcase his lack of reliability and upside in the majority of fantasy settings.

    • Twins' Bartolo Colon: Confirmed as Sunday's starter
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colon (illness) has been confirmed as Sunday's starter against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. He exited Tuesday's start after one inning due to an illness, but will be ready to take the ball in the final game of the regular season. Colon has a 5.50 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 43 strikeouts in 73.2 innings since joining the Twins, and those stats are actually an improvement over how he pitched with the Braves earlier this season. He should be avoided in any fantasy format where ratios need to be protected.

    • Twins' Bartolo Colon: Exits with illness Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colon exited Tuesday's game against the Indians after one inning with an undisclosed illness, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Colon was roughed up for two runs on three hits in the first frame before being removed from the game between innings with an illness. It's currently unclear if he'll make another start this season.

    • Colon (4-6) gave up six runs on seven hits -- including two homers -- over 3.1 innings in a losing effort against the Yankees on Wednesday. He struck out three and issued one walk. The 44-year-old has now given up 16 earned runs in his last three starts, with a 4:3 K:BB and four homers allowed in that span (11 innings). Colon lines up for two key starts next week (at CLE, vs DET), and if he comes through with strong outings and leads Minnesota to the postseason, he could make the ALDS rotation. Right now, he doesn't even seem deserving of a postseason roster spot.

    • Twins' Bartolo Colon: Takes 13th loss to Blue Jays
      By RotoWire Staff

      Colon (6-13) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks over six innings and took the loss Friday night against the Blue Jays. Colon was at least able to eat some innings after he lasted just five outs his last time out against the Royals. Unfortunately, though, the Jays got to Colon for a pair of home runs, giving him 25 allowed in as many starts. As good as Colon's control and command remains, his diminishing velocity means he has zero margin for error, and the Jays made him pay Friday night.
