Colon becomes third active pitcher to beat all 30 teams

Minnesota Twins starter Bartolo Colon became the third active MLB pitcher to beat all 30 teams with a 12-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

“It means a lot to my career,” Colon said through a translator after matching the Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer and the Cubs’ John Lackey, who accomplished the feat last season. “Now, I haven’t won in two stadiums, so that’s the next goal.”

MLBTR: Bartolo Colon Drawing Interest From Mets, Others

You can never get enough BartoLOLo.

While it’s notable that the Mets moved so quickly on a fan favorite who so recently played such a significant role with the organization, it’s not yet clear that Colon is slated to return to Queens. The club doesn’t expect to hear back from Colon’s camp until tomorrow, says Puma. And other (as yet unnamed) organizations have also logged their interest in the veteran hurler, per James Wagner of the New York Times (via Twitter).

Colon, 44, washed out with the Braves this year. But Atlanta is paying his sizable guarantee the rest of the way, with other organizations free to retain him for nothing more than the league minimum salary (for whatever time he actually spends in the majors). And despite Colon’s significant struggles this year, it wasn’t long ago that he was a durable and effective starter for the Mets.

Braves Designate Bartolo Colon

The Braves announced that they have designated veteran righty Bartolo Colon for assignment. Atlanta selected the contract of southpaw Rex Brothers to take his roster spot.

It always hurts to drop a player who’s owed a big salary — in this case, $12.5MM on the year — but his performance left the team with little alternative. Colon, 44, carries an unsightly 8.14 ERA through 63 innings with 6.0 K/9 against 2.9 BB/9 and a 45.6% groundball rate.

Though a recent DL placement bought some time and afforded an opportunity for a reset, Colon struggled upon his return. He lasted only four innings against the Padres yesterday, coughing up six earned runs on eight hits and three walks.

So are there no more Expos?

Bartolo Colon (majors-worst 7.78 ERA) placed on disabled list

“Trade a player a year too early rather than a year too late.” ~ Branch Rickey

The Mets picked just the right time to let him go.

Mired in the worst stretch of his 20-year career, Bartolo Colon is now on the 10-day disabled list with what the Braves said was a left oblique strain.

The move was made Tuesday, a day after Colon (2-7) got rocked again for seven hits and eight earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings of an 11-4 loss to the Phillies, raising his majors-worst ERA to a staggering 7.78, nearly 1 1/2 runs higher than the next-worst among 88 qualified major league starters, and increasing his oppon
