Free agent starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has been hospitalized after getting hit in the mouth with a "hard line drive" in a game in the Dominican Republic, reports Manolo Hernández Douen.
At this point, there is no further information on Colon's well being.
Colon, 39, was 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 91 strikeouts in 152 1/3 innings this season for the A's. He had resurrected his career in 2011 with the Yankees after undergoing a controversial stem-cell procedure. He then signed a one-year, $2 million contract with Oakland in the offseason.
But, on Aug. 22, it was revealed that Colon had failed a drug test -- showing heightened testosterone levels -- and thus was suspended for the remainder of the season. He actually still has five games left on his suspension for next season.
