Last Two Colon starts:

L 6.1IP, 11H, 7ER, 2HR
L 4.1IP, 10H, 6ER, 2HR

Is Colon 5 still worth a roster spot?

I'm really not sure why he's playing so poorly. His shoulder may be tiring being that it's probably not 100% yet.

I'm so lucky I sold high on him. I turned Colon & Swisher into Travis Hafner.

I am happy I am against Colon's owner this week up huge in ERA after Johan/Gaudin had solid starts.

I would just wait it out with Colon for now but watch starting him against really good offenses.

I would hardly consider Seattle a really good offense

After getting knocked around for nine runs Monday against the Mariners, Bartolo Colon said that he was "bothered all game" by tightness in his triceps.

Guess I'll wait on Colon...or maybe grab Slowey :-?

Colon has been pitching with an injury his last 2 turns. Something to do with his forearm. He can't get "as loose as he would like." Apparently he feels it is not DL-serious. Regardless, it seems to be potentailly serious to the future health of the Angels.

After getting knocked around for nine runs Monday against the Mariners, Bartolo Colon said that he was "bothered all game" by tightness in his triceps.
Good thing he stayed in so long. "It's not pain, but it doesn't allow me to get as loose as I want to get," Colon said. "I don't want it to affect the way I pitch. I don't want it to carry through the rest of the season." After starting the season 5-0 with a 3.69 ERA, Colon has allowed 15 runs over his last 10 2/3 innings.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Bartolo Colon (triceps) "appears headed to the disabled list."

Colon said afterward that tightness in his triceps bothered him throughout Monday's start, in which he allowed nine runs. "You're always concerned with that," manager Mike Scioscia said. "If he doesn't make progress over the next couple of days, we'll consider different things. Extra rest could be the answer." If Colon is indeed placed on the DL, the Angels would likely either call up Joe Saunders from Triple-A or move Dustin Moseley into the rotation. May. 30 - 8:47 am et
