Colon (6-3) was hammered for nine runs (eight earned) on 11 hits and a pair of walks over 4.1 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Regression has come painfully for Colon, who's been torn up to the tune of 26 hits -- five of them homers -- and 17 earned runs over 15.1 innings in his last three starts. In fact, Colon's only prevented the opposing offense from hitting a home run one time in nine tries. The bright side of being around the plate so much is that Colon still has an insane 46:3 K:BB for the season, but he's clearly an ERA risk with the amount of contact he gives up. He'll draw the Phillies on Monday.

Colon allowed six runs (five earned) on seven hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out two over five innings of a 7-0 loss to the Brewers on Friday night.

Colon (6-2, 3.86 ERA) is always around the plate (he hasn't walked a hitter since his first start of the season) tossing 52 of 62 pitches for strikes, but he allowed two more home runs which has been his downfall. He typically limits the damage by not issuing free passes, but he can be pretty hittable which is always a concern.

Colon tossed six innings and picked up his sixth win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Phillies. He allowed four earned runs, eight hits, and posted a 6:0 K:BB ratio in the game.

The four earned runs tied a season high for Colon and he also allowed a home run for the sixth time in seven starts, but that did not prevent him from coming away with another victory. Colon owns a 0.99 WHIP on the season and has yet to walk a batter since Opening Day.

Colon was masterful Tuesday, allowing six hits and one run while striking out nine to earn his MLB-leading fifth win in the Mets 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

Colon struggled with his fastball early, but was able to utilize his slider and change-up to retire hitters. He has walked just one batter in 40 innings so far this season, which looks even more amazing when compared to his 34 strikeouts. Colon's BABIP is likely to rise, which will mean some regression, but his ability to add and take off his fastball should enable him to weather the storm.

Colon (4-1) took his first loss of the year Wednesday in Miami, giving up four runs on nine hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out two without a walk.

Despite this being his worst start of the year, Colon continued to show masterful control, as he avoided walking a batter for the fourth consecutive outing and has issued just one base on balls all year. That's helped Colon keep his WHIP down so far -- it's still just 0.98 -- but considering that he's only posted a marker under 1.20 once in the last eight seasons, it seems likely that there are some more course corrections to come.

Colon picked up his MLB-leading fourth win with six innings of three-run ball Thursday against the Braves. He struck out five, allowed seven hits and walked none.

Colon has simply been a revelation so far this year, as those four victories -- joined by a 2.77 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 23 strikeouts (with just one walk) in 26 innings -- have made him one of the National League's most valuable pitchers in April. Who saw that coming?

Colon allowed just one run on six hits, he did not walk a batter, and struck out five over seven innings of a 4-1 win against Miami Friday night.

The young guns in the Mets' rotation get most of the ink, but Colon is now 3-0 with a solid 2.25 ERA over his first three 2015 starts. He is typically efficient - he tossed 66 of 91 pitches for strikes in this one - so even though he isn't likely to keep up his current pace, he can be a productive part of a fantasy rotation.
