Colon (14-8) lasted just 2.1 innings against the Marlins on Monday, allowing seven runs on eight hits, no walks, and no strikeouts, taking the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Dee Gordon drove Colon's third pitch of the night over the right field fence in what was an emotional start to the game for the Marlins. Things didn't get much better for Colon, who allowed four runs in the second and two in the third before being removed after 47 pitches. Colon entered Monday having thrown five consecutive quality starts, however, so fantasy owners have reason to hope he can bounce back in his final start of the regular season in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Colon went 6.2 innings of two-run ball Wednesday, allowing six hits and no walks while striking out six and earning a no-decision against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Colon was cruising through six innings Wednesday, pitching a three-hit shutout with six strikeouts. An Anthony Recker home run in the seventh spoiled the shutout, but Colon was still in line for his 15th win until the Mets bullpen allowed runs in the eighth and ninth innings to lose the game 4-3. Colon is 14-7 with an excellent 3.12 ERA on the year, and has pitched even better of late, going 4-0 with a 2.35 ERA in his last seven starts. He is a big reason why the Mets are right in contention for a wild card berth despite scoring the second fewest runs in baseball.

Colon (14-7) fired seven innings of scoreless, three-hit ball against the Twins on Friday, walking two and striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless righty tamed what has generally been a potent offense in recent weeks, throwing 67 of 94 pitches for strikes over an efficient seven innings. Colon has four quality starts in a row, along with victories in his last four decisions. He'll look to continue his strong stretch when he takes on the Braves next Wednesday.

Colon allowed three runs on four hits and one walk Saturday against Atlanta while striking out two. He did not factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless Colon continues to play a critical role in keeping the Mets' playoffs aspirations alive. The 43-year-old is 13-7 on the season with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He has also become more effective as the season has progressed, having logged quality starts in seven of his last eight appearances.

Colon will have his start moved up to Saturday, Marc Carig of Newsday Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was revealed that Seth Lugo had a blister in his last start, so the Mets seem inclined to let his finger heal an extra day. This allows Colon to slide up and square off against John Gant. This doesn't change his outlook all that much considering Williams Perez was the pitcher he would've faced on Sunday, but either way, the 43-year-old is an intriguing play against the dreary Atlanta offense this weekend.

Colon (13-7) shut out the Reds for six innings on Monday, allowing just five hits while walking one and striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his age and physique, Colon has been one of the few Mets pitchers to stay healthy and productive this season. The 43-year-old has allowed two earned runs or fewer in six of his last seven starts. He'll carry a 3.22 ERA into his start Saturday against the Braves.

Colon was terrific Wednesday, throwing seven innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out three and earning a no-decision against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Unfortunately for Colon, the Mets offense was unable to score more than two runs until the eighth inning, so he failed to earn what would have been his 13th win of the year. Colon's fastball sits in the high 80's and isn't blowing people away, as evidenced by his 106 strikeouts in 158.2 innings. Yet he's getting the job done, and now has a 3.35 ERA over 27 starts for the Mets in his age 43 season. He'll next take the hill against the Reds on Monday.

Colon (11-7) gave up two earned runs on nine hits and a walk over 6.1 innings in Saturday's 9-5 victory over the Giants. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless righty fired 72 of his 103 pitches for strikes and impressively got ahead with first-pitch strikes on 23 of the 27 hitters he faced. Colon bounced back nicely after lasting only four innings against the D-backs in his last start and now has quality starts in three of his four trips to the mound in August. He'll look to extend the positive momentum on Friday versus the Phillies.

Colon (10-7) allowed five runs (but just two earned) on nine hits and two walks with one strikeout over four innings against Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Colon wasn't helped by his defense, but he also wasn't fooling Diamondbacks hitters. He managed just two swinging strikes on 81 pitches and was tagged for four extra-bases, including a Paul Goldschmidt triple. The Diamondbacks are the only one of the 30 major league teams Colon has yet to beat in his career, and he'll have to wait to nab that elusive win. On the bright side, Colon hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his three August starts and hasn't allowed a home run in 17.2 innings.

Colon threw seven solid innings Wednesday, allowing just one run on seven hits and a walk while fanning eight Diamondbacks hitters and earning a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the strong effort, Colon was in line for the loss until the ninth inning when Kelly Johnson hit a pinch-hit, game-tying home run. Colon has been either very good or very bad of late, allowing five or more runs three times in his past seven starts, but allowing one or no earned runs in the other four. But on the whole, Colon has been a solid performer for the Mets, posting a 3.35 ERA over 23 starts. Colon should get a pair of road starts next week, first in Arizona and then in San Fransisco.
