Mike Puma reports that the Mets "will listen to offers for Bartolo Colon and may actively shop the veteran right-hander."

Well, of course they are. Colon inked a two-year, $20 million contract over the winter and has pitched well of late after a slow start, putting up a 3.88 ERA over 16 starts overall. He's owed roughly $14.5 million through the end of 2015, but that shouldn't really be a stumbling block to get a deal done. Puma notes that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson "has no pressure to deal Colon, and the Mets could wait past the July 31 non-waiver deadline in attempting to maximize their return."
