      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Intends to pitch in 2019

      Bartolo Colon said he would like to pitch in 2019, Doug Padilla of MLB.com reports.Colon will pitch in the Dominican League this winter, agreeing to make at least six appearances, at least one in every stadium in the league. That smacks of a retirement tour, but the 45-year-old right-hander insists he wants to come back for a 22nd season. Colon has made just three appearances for the Texas Rangers in September, with two of those three being relief outings after a start Sept. 5, when he allowed five runs in four innings against the Angels. He had been Texas' most consistent starter over the first two months of the season but has a 7.48 ERA since June 1.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Makes relief appearance Wednesday

      Bartolo Colon allowed one run on three hits in 1.1 innings of relief in Wednesday's loss to the Rays.This was Colon's first appearance since being removed from the Texas Rangers' starting rotation -- 14 days since he last pitched. That's a clear sign he's not in the team's plans for the rest of the season. The Rangers prefer to give innings to the young relievers called up for September.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Removed from rotation

      Bartolo Colon will be removed from the rotation going forward, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.In a lost season for the Texas Rangers, there's little reason to give innings to a 45-year-old when they could go to young pitchers who are part of the team's future. Adrian Sampson, who was five years old when Colon made his MLB debut, will take Colon's spot moving forward. Colon will be available out of the bullpen, but even there, the Rangers would likely prefer to give younger pitchers the opportunities.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: May not start Tuesday

      Bartolo Colon may not start Tuesday when his next likely turn in the rotation is due, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.Texas manager Jeff Banister is exploring options, including replacing Colon with Adrian Sampson, who was an effective starter for Triple-A Round Rock. Keeping Colon in the rotation makes no sense for multiple reasons: He blocks important development innings for young pitchers, he hasn't been effective since the All-Star break (2-5, 8.12 ERA), and he's earning incentive bonuses of $150,000 for every 10 innings he throws beyond 130.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: No plans to retire

      Bartolo Colon has no plans to retire and hopes to return to the Texas Rangers next season, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.Despite Colon's intentions, it's far from guaranteed that the 45-year-old will be able to find work in 2019. He's posted a 5.55 ERA this season after recording a 6.48 ERA last year, and he's been worse as the season has gone on, struggling to a 7.04 ERA over his last 17 starts. At this point, the more pressing question for Colon is whether or not he'll remain in the rotation down the stretch, with the Rangers reportedly wanting to give Adrian Sampson a shot to start.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Takes 12th loss

      Bartolo Colon (7-12) took the loss Wednesday, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk over four innings while striking out three as the Angels romped to a 9-3 win over the Texas Rangers.The 45-year-old has been brutal in the second half, and Colon now has an 8.12 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break. With the Rangers just playing out the string on the season and lacking any pitching prospects to audition in the rotation, however, he'll keep taking the mound every fifth day or so, with his next outing set for Tuesday in a road rematch against the Angels.

      Bartolo Colon (illness) will start Wednesday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.Colon was expected to start Sunday but was skipped due to a stomach virus.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Returns from DL, won't start Sunday

      Bartolo Colon (back) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Saturday but will not start Sunday due to a stomach virus.Colon landed on the DL last week with a lower-back strain and was able to miss the minimum 10 days. The 45-year-old's next turn in the rotation would come Saturday at Oakland, but it remains unclear if the Texas Rangers will wait until then or simply re-insert him once available.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Set to rejoin rotation Sunday

      Bartolo Colon (back) is scheduled to start Sunday against the Twins, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.Colon's stay on the disabled list will be a brief one, with the veteran right-hander slated to rejoin the rotation the first day he's eligible. The 45-year-old has posted an unremarkable 5.45 ERA across 140.1 innings this season.

      Rangers' Bartolo Colon: Will return as starter after injury

      Manager Jeff Banister said Bartolo Colon (hamstring) will return to the starting rotation when he's ready to pitch, Martin Oppegaard of MLB.com reports. The 45-year-old Colon was placed on the disabled list Friday.Prior to Colon landing on the disabled list, there was speculation that he would be removed from the rotation and replaced by a young arm that could use the exposure to major-league hitters. Banister's comments suggest Colon will continue to get starts, although as the schedule moves into September, we suspect some of the organization's roster-expansion callups to take turns in the rotation. The Texas Rangers will have multiple spots in the 2019 rotation up for grabs, and it makes sense to evaluate pitchers other than Colon.
