Colon has shown durability before, throwing 200+ innings in 7 of his 10 pro seasons, and has looked good coming back ahead of schedule and throwing mid 90s in rehab starts. Might be too early to pull the trigger in mixed leagues, but AL only...what are you waiting for?
He's not THAT good, and won't be a perennial Cy Young contender. Everything went his way in 2005 (and I was fortunate to own him that year) but he walks too many guys and gives up quite a few HR. His WHIP varies wildly from 1.2-1.4 typically.
He's still a good fantasy pitcher though. But his peripherals are no Cy Young-calibre.
