Bartolo Colon Signs Minor League Deal With Minnesota Twins

08 Juillet 2017

The Twins won't expect Colon to be one of its top pitchers if he ultimately finds his way onto its rotation, but he should eat up innings and solidify a pitching staff in need of another solid arm if he can turn around his disappointing form from earlier in the season.

Bartolo Colon, a favorite of Mets fans during his three seasons in NY, reached a minor league deal with the Minnesota Twins on Friday. "#BigSexy", the Twins wrote on the team's official Twitter account on Friday.

The Braves ultimately designated him for assignment in June, however, after he went just 2-8 with an 8.14 ERA and 1.78 WHIP.

Oilers sign Jokinen to one-year deal
The Oilers will be happy to take on a one-year deal with a veteran who has played almost 900 games in the National Hockey League . Jokinen, 34, had 28 points (11 goals, 17 assists) in 69 games with the Florida Panthers last season and was an alternate captain.

A four-time All-Star and the 2005 American League Cy Young victor for the Los Angeles Angels, Colon continued to defy his age, going 44-34 with a 3.90 ERA over the previous three seasons for the New York Mets.

His Cy Young season came with the Angeles in 2005, winning a career-high 21 games opposite eight losses and posting a 3.48 ERA and 157 strikeouts in 33 starts.
