    Colon's last start with Mets?

    Colon's last start with Mets?
    August, 24, 2014
    By AJ Mass | ESPN Insider


    Bartolo Colon is scheduled to pitch Sunday for the New York Mets when they square off against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and there's an outside chance that this outing could be his last for the team.

    As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports, Colon was placed on revocable waivers Saturday, noting that the Los Angeles Angels might be interested in Colon, but cautioning that they'd be the last team to get a shot at claiming the pitcher.

    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York explains the move: "If Colon is claimed, the Mets can pull him back and be unable to trade him, work out a trade with the claiming team, or dump the $11 million contract for 2015 on the claiming club. There may be a fair chance Colon clears waivers because of that contract dump potential. If Colon clears, the Mets are free to deal him to any club for the remainder of the month."

    Should Colon shine on Sunday, especially given the tragedy of the recent death of his mother, it could well motivate a contending team to decide they want to add him to their roster for the stretch run.

    Hopefully they get something of value for him if so.

    Let him walk for nothing if it means Mets can spend that 11 mill

    How funny will it be for a team to block the move and get stuck with him.

    Agreed. If someone claims him, I'd just let him go if they can't work out a trade.

    Ya I don't think he will get blocked by a team who isn't prepared to get him because I think sandy might just let him go for nothing at this point

    I think it's a very good bet that he clears.

    If a team does clock him, use that to get what you want. Or Dump him. Its a win win

    There could be a non playoff contending team that wants him for $11m next year. Could beat what is out there in the FA market.

    They will not trade Seager, Pederson, or Urias. Seager is probably the most valuable.

    I'd be surprised if we even got a single Top 10 guy for Colon. The best we can hope for is a lotto ticket type project like Michael Medina,
