Bartolo Colon SP NYM 19 hours ago

Colon (4-3) rebounded from last week's loss to the Nationals by limiting them to just one run on five hits over seven innings in Monday's win. He walked two and struck out two.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Monday was Colon's best outing since May 2 when he tossed eight scoreless innings against the Braves. His two strikeouts were a season low for the veteran (not counting his first start on April 3 cut short by rain). For the first time this season, the righty avoided giving up a home run in consecutive games. Colon continues to be a productive fantasy asset for the third straight decade.

Colon (3-3) had a rough time against the Nationals on Wednesday, giving up five hits, five walks, a hit batsman and three runs over 4.2 innings in a 7-1 loss.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He was fortunate to put 11 men on and yet give up just the three runs thanks to playing Houdini through the first four innings, but Colon let the Nats break a 1-1 tie in the fifth and was lifted after requiring 107 pitches to get just 14 outs. After the nearly 43-year-old righty put up a 2.82 ERA through his first seven appearances (six starts), regression seemed inevitable, and it's struck hard in his last two outings. That said, Wednesday's control problems were highly unusual for Colon -- he actually walked more batters in this one start than he had in 43.1 innings coming in. Unfortunately for Colon and his fantasy owners, he'll have to face these same hard-hitting Nationals again Monday.

Colon (3-2) gave up five runs on seven hits over five innings in a shutout loss to the Dodgers on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He had the misfortune of being matched up against Clayton Kershaw, who tossed a three-hit shutout on the other end, but it didn't exactly take a masterful performance to beat Colon in this one. Of course, he was about due for a dud, as Colon hadn't allowed more than three runs in any of his first six starts this season; the guy's good fortune can't last forever. He'll draw a tough one in his next start, which will come against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Colon (3-1) allowed three runs on six hits, including a home run, over 6.2 innings in a victory against the Padres on Saturday. He also had five strikeouts and one walk.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 42-year-old has managed to improve his strikeout and walk numbers with age. Last season, he had a career-best 5.67 K/BB and led the league with a 1.1 BB/9. This season, he owns a 0.9 BB/9 and incredible 9.33 K/BB. Colon has a 2.82 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 38. 1 innings this year. His next start will come Thursday against the Dodgers.

Colon (2-1) was masterful Monday, shutting out the Braves for eight innings while striking out seven. He allowed seven hits and did not walk a batter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Colon flies under the radar in the Mets' star-studded rotation, but he has been incredibly impressive in 2016. The veteran righty has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his starts this year and has walked a grand total of three batters compared to his 28 strikeouts. His next start comes Saturday against the Padres.

Colon (1-1) gave up eight hits and three runs while striking out four in five innings of work during Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran hurler was on the hook for the loss until his teammates bailed him out with a four-run seventh inning. Tuesday marked the second start in a row in which Colon did not factor into the decision. With 21 total strikeouts, it's been a solid season for the 42-year-old, but fantasy owners will need him to start picking up more wins.

Colon (1-1) pitched six innings, allowing three runs, four hits and a walk while striking out four against the Phillies on Wednesday. Despite leaving the game with a lead, he did not factor in the decision as the contest wound up going into extra innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

At age 42, Colon continues to amaze the baseball world as he logged his second quality start of 2016. The right-hander has started 30-plus games while throwing 190-plus innings in each of the last three seasons. In three starts so far this year, Colon has a 3.12 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 17.1 innings, and the veteran appears poised to have another productive campaign.

Colon (1-1)surrendered eight hits, two earned runs and a walk over 5.1 innings in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Indians. He struck out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The ageless right-hander turned in a shorter stint than in his 1-0, tough-luck loss to the Phillies in his last trip to the mound, but received sufficient run support on this occasion to garner the victory. Colon was relatively sharp, throwing 62 of his 97 pitches for strikes against his first major league club. He benefited from four home runs on the part of his offense, and has looked effective overall in back-to-back starts.

Colon limited the Phillies to just one run on five hits while striking out seven in six innings Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Colon's one mistake, a fastball that Ryan Howard hit out of the park to left field, costing him and the Mets the game. Colon was attempting to tie Pedro Martinez for second on the all-time list by Dominican-born pitchers with 218 wins behind Juan Marichal, who ranks first with 243 victories. He will get his next chance to tie that mark next week.

Colon will be the Mets' fifth starter until Zack Wheeler (elbow) returns from the disabled list, Matt Ehalt of NorthJersey.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wheeler's recovery and rehab from Tommy John surgery is expected to keep him off a major league mound until close to the All-Star break, so Colon's run as a starter will last around half the season before the veteran moves to a bullpen role. Although it's a reality that Colon won't be an every day starter for the whole season, he could potentially have fantasy value as a first half rental option.
