Impact: The veteran's settled down since his nine-run explosion in Anaheim, with consecutive impressive home starts. Surprisingly, he's struck out 26 batters in 32 innings so far -- good for a 7.31 K/9, a huge improvement over last year's 5.53 mark.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon (back) suffered his third loss of the season Saturday, as the Mets were downed 7-5 by the Braves. He allowed three earned runs on eight hits and struck out six. Impact: The 283-pound veteran's ERA dropped to 5.40 and WHIP to 1.40 in the loss, but his 18 strikeouts still make him a serviceable option in deeper formats. Colon was hurt by his own throwing error in the third that scored two runs, though both ended up being earned when the next batter singled. He's slated to face the Cards in his next start Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon (back) will make his scheduled start Saturday against the Braves, as expected. Impact: A back issue threatened to keep Colon off the hill Saturday, but he'll be able to pitch through any lingering discomfort he may have. The right-hander has already faced Atlanta once this season, having tossed seven shutout innings in a win back on Apr. 8.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Terry Collins stated that Colon (back) will take the mound as scheduled Saturday versus the Braves, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Impact: Colon will tough out the back concern, which likely contributed to his porous outing Sunday at the Angels (nine earned runs and four homers allowed in five frames). In the meantime, he'll receive treatment to aid in returning to a semblance of full health.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon could miss his next start Saturday against the Braves due to a back issue, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Colon certainly didn't help fantasy owners Sunday against the Angels by getting walloped for nine runs and 11 hits over five innings, with the big right-hander attributing the balky back as a factor in the poor performance. He's since received treatment on the issue over the past couple of days, but it remains to be seen whether or not he'll recuperate enough before the weekend to toe the rubber for the Mets.(RotoWire, )

News: Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez hit consecutive home runs off Bartolo Colon in the first inning, setting the tone for the Los Angeles Angels' 14-2 rout of the New York Mets on Sunday in the decisive game of their interleague series. Impact: Colon (1-2, 6.00 ERA) gave up nine runs and 11 hits in five innings, allowing at least one hit to every batter in the Angels' starting lineup after pitching seven innings of six-hit ball last Tuesday during a 4-0 victory in Atlanta. The 40-year-old right-hander signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the Mets in December as a free agent after going 18-6 with a career-best 2.65 ERA in 30 starts for Oakland.(STATS, 6:24pm)
