Mets | Bartolo Colon unlikely to be trade chip

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 07:30:05 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon is unlikely to be traded this season unless it somehow improved the team's chance at the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is 4-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 25 K's in 32 2/3 innings. At $5,200 (10.4% of your cap), he's at a decent price for a midrange start on FantasyScore.

Mets | Bartolo Colon relying on heater

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:29:07 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon dealt with a blister on his throwing hand that affected him on offspeed pitches, and no qualified pitcher has thrown a higher percentage of fastballs than Colon (88.1%) this season. Colon also led the league last year in fastball percentage (82.6%) and in 2013 (85.5%).

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has won the first four starts of the season for the first time in his long career. He already beat the Marlins this year back on April 17 and allowed just one earned run in seven innings. Colon was 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA against Miami last year in 14 2/3 innings, too. Don't expect his 7.96 K/9 to last all year with a predictable arsenal. With things going in his favor right now, he's not a bad candidate for your daily rosters, but don't expect many strikeouts the second time around against Miami.

Mets | Bartolo Colon first to four wins

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:38:12 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon became the first pitcher to four wins by beating the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 23. Colon gave up three runs in six innings to win his first four starts of the season for the first time in his career. He has struck out 23 hitters and walked only one so far in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Colon's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) nice start, he remains mainly a matchup play at FantasyScore. His K/9 of 8.10 is prime for regression as the season advances, too.

Mets | Bartolo Colon a Brave killer?

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 10:07:42 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon is 5-2 with a 2.25 career ERA against the Atlanta Braves in seven appearances, and he has never gone less than seven innings against them and never allowed more than three runs.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is an under-the-radar play at FantasyScore tonight against the Braves. Look to him if you want to save some money for the rest of your lineup.

Mets | Bartolo Colon continues solid start

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:07:22 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon improved to 3-0 on the year with a win over the Miami Marlins Friday, April 17, lowering his ERA to 2.25.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has allowed three earned runs or less and struck out at least five in all three starts, and while he is unlikely to sustain his current pace, there is no reason you can't ride Colon at FantasyScore until he cools off.

Mets | Bartolo Colon sharp in opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 20:20:06 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon allowed just one run and three hits with a walk and eight strikeouts over six innings in a win Monday, April 6, against the Washington Nationals. He threw 59 of his 86 pitches for strikes. At 41, he is the oldest opening day starting pitcher since 2006.

Fantasy Tip: Colon proved he still has a little bit left in the tank. Colon will be opposed by Atlanta's Alex Wood on the road Sunday in what appears to be a favorable matchup. At $5,600 (or 11.2% of cap) he is a solid mid-level value in FantasyScore.

Mets | Bartolo Colon starting Monday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 04:00:25 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon will start Monday, April 6, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a good matchup for Colon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) on many levels. The Nationals are pegged by many as the best team in baseball and they snagged a prize free agent in Scherzer, which will make this matchup more difficult. Add in a 1-4 mark and 4.50 ERA against the Nats last season, and you have the makings of a bad start waiting to happen. He isn't worth the money.

Mets | Manager sets front of Mets' rotation

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:05:24 -0700

New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Jacob deGrom and Matt Harvey will pitch the first three games of the season against the Washington Nationals, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), deGrom ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) and Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) are risky options for FantasyScore players with the Mets visiting the high-powered Nationals in their season-opening series. Still, deGrom and Harvey have the strikeout upside to offset some of the risk of a potent line, Colon, though, doesn't.

Mets | Bartolo Colon opening day starter?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:30:28 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon's scheduled final two Grapefruit League starts would line up with him starting opening day, but manager Terry Collins didn't make an official announcement. Colon will make his starts next week in minor league games in order to avoid facing the Washington Nationals, the Mets' opening day opponent.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a poor option for FantasyScore games in the season opener since the Nationals project to be one of the better offenses in baseball. He's also nothing more than a late-round rotation filler in large mixed leagues.

Mets | Bartolo Colon could start opener

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 10:33:28 -0800

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon is in the running to start Opening Day against the Washington Nationals April 6. According to multiple sources, Colon and one unnamed starter are being considered by team officials to make the start.

Fantasy Tip: The 41-year-old Colon has made six career Opening Day starts and topped 200 innings last season for the first time since 2005. His record (15-13) and ERA (4.09) were mediocre, but he struck out approximately five batters for every walk he allowed. Given his age, he could be available in the later rounds of mixed fantasy league drafts.
