It’s my favorite day of the week, Bartday. Bartolo Colon will make his second start off the disabled list, and his first looked like vintage Bart. He was fastball heavy, throwing the two-seamer inside to lefties for called strike threes, getting batters to stare at the four-seamer on the outer half. It’s gorgeous. Here’s the lineup…
Bartolo Colon, SP
First pitch is scheduled for a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on YES locally or MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.
Mariano Rivera Update: Mo threw today and felt fine, so he’s available to pitch tonight if needed. He will, however, skip out on the All-Star Game next week.
