Mets | Bartolo Colon pitches well in loss

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 16:06:14 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon allowed one run on six hits in seven innings against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 26, but suffered his fourth loss of the season. He struck out two batters and walked one.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last seven starts and has a solid 2.86 ERA this season. He is scheduled to face the Chicago Cubs in his next start, which makes him a risky option in some fantasy leagues.

Mets | Bartolo Colon set to start Sunday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:02:04 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) has been confirmed as the team's starting pitcher for Sunday, June 26, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Colon left the team briefly to attend his son's graduation in New Jersey, but his status was really never in doubt after completing a bullpen session on Thursday. He makes for a solid, low-cost option in DFS and should be a respectable start in regular leagues as well.

Mets | Bartolo Colon expected to start Sunday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:01:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) will throw a bullpen session to test his bruised right thumb Thursday, June 23, and is still expected to start against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 26, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is having a nice season with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP, but his 56 strikeouts through 81 innings limit his upside. He's a viable own in deep mixed leagues, and this is a nice matchup to start him in all fantasy formats. Just confirm he's over his thumb injury before locking him into lineups.

Mets | Bartolo Colon suffers thumb injury

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 19:30:04 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) was lifted from his start Tuesday, June 21, against the Kansas City Royals after just four pitches after suffering a bruised thumb on a comebacker in the first inning. Manager Terry Collins said Colon's thumb swelled pretty badly, and he will be re-evaluated Wednesday, June 22. It's uncertain if he'll need a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but the team scratched SP Logan Verrett from his start at Class AAA just in case.

Fantasy Tip: Colon should be reserved in all fantasy leagues, as this certainly sounds like a DL move. However, wait until it is made official, especially if you're in a weekly league, as you have plenty of time to make a decision. Verrett has pitched well when filling in, and he is the logical choice to move into the rotation if Colon is forced to the shelf.

Mets | Bartolo Colon leaves start early

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 16:45:06 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) left his start early Tuesday, June 21, because of a right thumb contusion. X-rays on his thumb came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for a possible timetable in the next day or two. Colon has pitched well so far this season and should be a starting option in most mixed leagues when he is healthy.

Mets | Rotation flip for the Mets vs. Royals

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 11:17:08 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon will start against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, June 21, and SP Noah Syndergaard will face the Royals Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: There is limited fantasy impact here, but it does set up Colon to be a two-start pitcher this week instead of Syndergaard. You're rolling with Syndergaard regardless, but it does make Colon a little more valuable this week. The Royals have scored the eighth-fewest runs in the league this season, so it is a solid matchup for both.

Rangers | Cole Hamels nets 2,000th strikeout

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:32:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels netted his 2,000th career strikeout Sunday, June 12. Only six other pitchers active (Bartolo Colon, CC Sabathia, Felix Hernandez, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Justin Verlander) have 2,000 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big honor for Hamels, whose 5-1 record and 78 strikeouts make him a popular fantasy option in daily, AL and mixed formats.

Mets | Solid outing for Bartolo Colon

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 23:39:15 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon allowed eight hits and one run in seven innings Thursday, June 9, as the Mets beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-2. It was Colon's fifth win in eight decisions.

Fantasy Tip: He may be a little on the weighty side, but Colon still possesses a decent arm at age 43. He's one of the more reliable older pitchers in the national League and a decent option in DFS and other fantasy formats.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson not hitting Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:52:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 29, against the New York Mets. OF Yasiel Puig is in right field and will hit fifth against Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like Thompson and Puig are going back and forth in right field and platooning a bit, but Puig had four of the seven starts this week. If Thompson and Puig continue this pure platoon, neither player is a solid fantasy start in weekly or annual leagues. However, DFS players can benefit from this situation. Thompson may come off the bench for pinch-hit duties Sunday night, but he should still be seated.

Mets | Bartolo Colon pitches well

Mon, 23 May 2016 22:06:25 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon allowed one run on five hits in seven innings against the Washington Nationals Monday, May 23, to earn his fourth win of the season. He struck out two batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has pitched well this season and has allowed more than three runs in only one of his 10 starts. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in his next start and should be a solid starting option in most leagues.
