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)

News: Colon was torched for nine runs on 11 hits and two walks over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Angels. He gave up four homers, including three in a row in the first inning. Impact: The outing comes as a pretty big shock when you consider Colon's recent success against the Angels as a member of the A's over the last two years.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon improved to 1-1 Tuesday, throwing seven shutout innings while surrendering six hits in a win at Atlanta. Impact: Somehow the ageless Colon may again prove to be an asset in fantasy circles.(STATS, 5:56pm)
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Colon shut down the Braves on Tuesday, giving up zero runs on six hits with five strikeouts to pick up his first win of the season. Impact: He kept the ball in the park Tuesday, which will be a key component of Colon having a solid season. He gave up a pair of homers in his first start of the season in a loss, but rebounded nicely, and will look to stay hot Sunday against the Angels in Anaheim.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon struck out four and did not walk a batter, but gave up three runs on nine hits -- including a pair of homers -- over six innings in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday. Impact: Ian Desmond and Gio Gonzalez took Colon deep in the fifth inning, to make the free-agent addition a loser in his debut with the Mets. Colon will make a pair of road starts next week, facing the Braves on Tuesday before an April 13 start against the Angels.(RotoWire, )
