Bartolo Colon‘s last two starts haven’t been all that good. Larry Rothschild claims Colon is apprehensive about his hamstring injury, which is fine, but he did pitch very well against the Mets in his first start back. Hopefully Bart’s not running out of gas, but that’s very possible considering he’s thrown more innings this year (90.2) than he did last year (0), the year before that (62.1), the year before that (39), and two years before that (59.1). Just pay attention to his fastball, if he’s pounding the zone with it, he’ll be fine. If he starts mixing in more sliders than usual, then something’s up. Here’s the starting nine…
Bartolo Colon, SP
Tonight’s game starts a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on My9, not YES. Enjoy.
Rosterbation: In case you missed it, Sergio Mitre has been placed on the DL with a hat trick of ailments: shoulder tendinitis, rotator cuff inflammation, and a bacterial infection . Steve Garrison is up from Double-A Trenton. No word on Mr. Hat.
