Bartolo Colon Briefly Humbles A Younger, Larger Foe

The Twins will give him a chance to do better, too.

The end might be near for Big Sexy.

"I feel happy", Colon said through an interpreter after the game. Either way, at least for now, he's in the Twins' rotation and he'll be toeing the rubber tonight for a home date with the Yankees.

Colon wasn't brilliant by any stretch, including his waistline. While ultimately encountering a loss, Colon allowed four earned runs on eight hits in addition to notching three strikeouts.

Cessa hit Sano with a pitch and walked three in a laborious first inning to quickly fall behind, and he was pulled with two outs in the fourth and a 3-1 deficit.

The Atlanta Braves designated him for assignment after he went 2-8 with an 8.14 ERA in 13 starts. His fastballs average just 84-89 miles per hour. The line drive shot to the bullpen in left-center field was his first homer since participating in the home run derby during All-Star week.

Twins fans gave Colon a standing ovation as he walked on and off the field. He began his career with Cleveland in 1997 and won the AL Cy Young Award with the Angels in 2005.

Bartolo Colon can't get out of the 5th inning vs. Yankees and now is reportedly talking about retirement. He is a four-time All-Star, most recently with the Mets a year ago, when he won 15 games with a 3.43 ERA. Judge had two hits, two runs and an RBI on Tuesday; Castro was out of the lineup. Of the 22 homers, 17 have come off right-handed pitchers.

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com hears that Bartolo Colon is "focused on pitching for the Twins".

He's still a circus clown, but this isn't his first rodeo, and as the Strib's Jim Souhan wrote, the Twins could use a veteran personality in the clubhouse, a la Torii Hunter in 2015, the only other season since 2010 the Twins have been in a playoff hunt in July. I've thought about it, so we'll see. "He's a character of the game".
