Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon gave up six runs and eight hits in five innings Thursday, May 9, against the Cleveland Indians. Colon, who pitched for the Indians from 1997 to 2002, hadn't faced Cleveland since 2005. ''I felt good,'' Colon said. ''The only problem is the Cleveland team is hot right now.''

Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon threw a seven-inning, complete-game rain-shortened contest against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, April 23, and gave up three hits while walking one and striking out seven.
Fantasy Tip: The less-than-ideal conditions probably aided in Colon's effectiveness against Boston hitters because he was throwing strikes. Colon stays around the zone usually, though, making him less likely to hurt your WHIP.

Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon allowed one earned run, four hits and no walks over six innings in a win Wednesday, April 17, against the Houston Astros. He also struck out three batters in the 97-pitch quality start.
Fantasy Tip: Colon has yet to walk a batter in 19 innings this season, and he lowered his ERA to 3.32. He is a must-start fantasy option in AL-only leagues, and a decent option depending on the matchup in mixed formats.

The evidence given in Miami New Times linking New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez and others to the BioGenesis clinic in Florida is not enough for Major League Baseball to hand out suspension. MLB can discipline players without a positive test if there is a preponderance of evidence that the specific person doped or tried to dope. The ledgers that connect Rodriguez and the others to the clinic would have to be sworn to under oath by someone with direct knowledge of them, and Anthony Bosch has denied any wrongdoing in this situation. MLB would need a witness or some sort of documentation to suspend Rodriguez, Toronto Blue Jays OF Melky Cabrera, Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon, Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez, San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal or Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz. Cabrera, Colon and Grandal were each suspended 50 games last season after testing positive, and they would each face a second, 100-game ban if the league can establish that they used performance-enhancing drugs on other occasions.

Evidence has been discovered that the following players were sold performance-enhancing drugs from an anti-aging clinic in Miami called Biogenesis: New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez, Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez, Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz, Toronto Blue Jays OF Melky Cabrera, Detroit Tigers SP Cesar Carrillo, Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon and San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal.
Fantasy Tip: Some of the details aren't clear whether the players actually received or used banned substances. It's unclear whether any suspensions will or can be handed out. Losing Gonzalez or Cruz for 50 games would have significant fantasy implications. Stay tuned to this story, which should be a prevalent one for weeks to come.
