Colon Signs Minor League Deal


Bartolo Colon has reportedly signed a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox.

If he makes the cut for the Opening Day roster, the husky right-hander would be a temporary replacement for veteran starter Curt Schilling, who will continue to rehab a shoulder injury into the first part of this season.

The 2007 season was plagued by injury for the former Los Angeles Angels hurler, as he finished with a 6-8 record and 6.34 ERA, the crappiest mark of his 11-year career. However, he's still a two-time 20-game champ and 2005 AL Cy Young Award winner, boasting a career 146-95 record and 4.10 ERA.

Get ready for a 4-way slugfest for the 5th spot in the rotation between Colon, Clay Buchholz, Julian Tavarez and Kyle Synder.

Spanks for the link love.

Going to be a battle to get to the clubhouse spread with Colon around.
