Teams are expected to start calling the Mets about the availability of Bartolo Colon, but that hasn’t happened yet (Puma, July 15).
It was recently reported that the Mets already started getting calls on the 41-year-old pitcher (Cafardo, July 13).
The Yankees, A’s, Blue Jays, Angels, Orioles, Brewers, Indians, Pirates and Mariners have all been listed in reports as teams that could have interest in acquiring Colon.
According to former GM now ESPN analyst Jim Bowden, the Mets can expect to be offered one, good upper-level prospect for Colon (ESPN Insider, June 27).
Colon will earn $9 million this season, and is due $11 million in 2015.
