Colon struck out five, ending the game with a 6.77 ERA and 1.62 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Fresh off becoming the oldest player in major league history to throw a complete game, Colon had his first scoreless start since Sept. 16, 2016, when he was still with the New York Mets. He was 2-8 with an 8.14 ERA in 13 starts when the Atlanta Braves released him on June 29. In five starts since joining the Twins in mid-July, the veteran right-hander has a 4.02 ERA with just three walks in 31 1/3 innings.

Colon struck out five, ending the game with a 7.32 ERA and 1.68 WHIP on the season. Analysis: At 44 years and 72 days, Colon is the oldest American League player to win a complete game since Nolan Ryan (45 years and 155 days) on July 4, 1992. Colon, who signed with Minnesota on July 7, has won games with 10 different teams, trailing the major league record of 11 set by LaTroy Hawkins, Mike Morgan and Ron Villone.

Analysis: The 44-year-old has given up 10 earned runs in 15 1/3 innings, without a victory.
July 31 8:12 AM PT9:12 AM MT10:12 AM CT11:12 AM ET11:12 ET15:12 GMT23:12 8:12 AM MST10:12 AM EST10:42 AM VEN19:12 UAE10:12 AM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk in 6.1 innings as the Minnesota Twins lost to the Oakland Athletics 6-5 on Sunday. Colon struck out one, ending the game with a 7.70 ERA and 1.75 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon had his best start yet with the Twins, though that's not saying much. He has a 9.79 ERA over his last seven outings overall, striking out just 15 in 30 1/3 innings.
July 25 1:45 PM PT2:45 PM MT3:45 PM CT4:45 PM ET16:45 ET20:45 GMT4:45 1:45 PM MST3:45 PM EST4:15 PM VEN0:45 UAE (+1)3:45 PM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed three runs on eight hits in 5.0 innings as the Minnesota Twins lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4 on Monday. Colon struck out two, ending the game with an 8.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon did throw strikes but ultimately turned in his second unspectacular start since joining the Twins after the All-Star break. With Minnesota just adding Jaime Garcia, the 44-year-old's days in the rotation may be numbered.
July 18 8:57 PM PT9:57 PM MT10:57 PM CT11:57 PM ET23:57 ET3:57 GMT11:57 8:57 PM MST10:57 PM EST11:27 PM VEN7:57 UAE (+1)10:57 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-9, allowing four runs on eight hits in 4.0 innings, as the Minnesota Twins lost to the New York Yankees 6-3 on Tuesday. Colon struck out three, ending the game with an 8.19 ERA and 1.79 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Making his 514th major league start and joining his 10th team, Colon started off strong but wore down quickly and has a 12.79 ERA in his last five starts. Target Field became the 45th major league park at which Colon has taken the mound.

Analysis: Colon was picked up by the Twins after the 44-year-old was released by the Atlanta Braves. The former AL Cy Young Award winner made one start with Triple-A Rochester, allowing four earned runs on as many hits in 3 2/3 innings against Lehigh Valley. Colon struggled to a 2-8 mark with an 8.14 ERA in 13 starts for the Braves before being designated for assignment.
July 7 6:33 PM PT7:33 PM MT8:33 PM CT9:33 PM ET21:33 ET1:33 GMT9:33 6:33 PM MST8:33 PM EST9:03 PM VEN5:33 UAE (+1)8:33 PM CT-Colon has agreed to terms on a minor league deal with the Twins. The 44-year-old with 235 career victories was designated for assignment last Thursday by the Braves, a day after a loss to San Diego dropped his record to 2-8. He had an 8.14 ERA in 13 starts. The Twins could bring him up to start as soon as July 18 against the New York Yankees. Analysis: Colon's successful run with the Mets from 2014-16 helped affirm his status as one of the game's most durable and popular players. He began his career with Cleveland in 1997 and won the AL Cy Young Award with the Angels in 2005. He is a four-time All-Star, most recently with the Mets last year, when he won 15 games with a 3.43 ERA.

Analysis: It's possible this is the end of the line for the burly 44-year-old, who had a rough outing Wednesday in his return from the disabled list.
June 29 10:29 AM PT11:29 AM MT12:29 PM CT1:29 PM ET13:29 ET17:29 GMT1:29 10:29 AM MST12:29 PM EST12:59 PM VEN21:29 UAE12:29 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-8, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks in 4.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the San Diego Padres 7-4 on Wednesday. Colon struck out two, ending the game with an 8.14 ERA and 1.78 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Pitching for the first time since going on the disabled list with a strained left oblique on June 6, Colon's return to Petco Park, where he hit his only career homer last season, was less than triumphant. He next takes the ball Wednesday against the Astros.
June 6 2:01 PM PT3:01 PM MT4:01 PM CT5:01 PM ET17:01 ET21:01 GMT5:01 2:01 PM MST4:01 PM EST4:31 PM VEN1:01 UAE (+1)4:01 PM CT-Colon (strained oblique) is coming off the DL on Wednesday to start in San Diego. Analysis: An All-Star last season with the New York Mets, Colon has been a major disappointment for the Braves. He is 2-7 with a 7.78 ERA, surrendering at least five earned runs in six of his 12 starts. He went on the DL after giving up eight runs in 3 2/3 innings against Philadelphia on June 5.
June 6 9:34 PM PT10:34 PM MT11:34 PM CT12:34 AM ET0:34 ET4:34 GMT12:34 9:34 PM MST11:34 PM EST12:04 AM VEN8:34 UAE11:34 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-7, allowing eight runs on seven hits and two walks in 3.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 11-4 on Monday. Colon struck out four, ending the game with a 7.78 ERA and 1.71 WHIP on the season. Analysis: The 44-year-old lost his third consecutive start and has permitted at least seven runs in each of those outings, and it appears he's finally reached the end of the line. If the Braves were planning on moving Colon at the trade deadline, it'll be a very tough sell to get anything in return.
May 31 9:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET12:37 ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST12:07 PM VEN20:37 UAE11:37 AM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-6, allowing nine runs - two earned - on seven hits and one walk in 2.1 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Los Angeles Angels 9-3 on Tuesday. Colon struck out two, ending the game with a 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon was undone a bit by his defense in this one. Although he gave up seven hits and got just seven outs in his latest unimpressive outing, Atlanta seemed to take the loss as a result of group ineptitude. ''I don't know that I've ever witnessed anything like that, and I've been at all the levels,'' Braves manager Brian Snitker said. ''I don't know. It was a little bit of everything. I don't know, because I didn't count, how many extra outs we gave them.''

Colon struck out one, ending the game with a 6.96 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season. Analysis: An All-Star last season for the Mets, Colon has been charged with five or more runs in half of his 10 starts with the Braves.
May 20 8:09 PM PT9:09 PM MT10:09 PM CT11:09 PM ET23:09 ET3:09 GMT11:09 8:09 PM MST10:09 PM EST10:39 PM VEN7:09 UAE (+1)10:09 PM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed two runs - one earned - on seven hits in 4.1 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Washington Nationals 5-2 on Saturday. Colon struck out six, ending the game with a 6.38 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon labored again in this one, throwing 97 pitches before he was removed with the Braves holding a 3-2 lead. The soon-to-be 44-year-old hasn't lasted past 5 2/3 innings in any of his past five starts, a stretch in which he's 1-2 with an 8.25 ERA.

Colon struck out one. Analysis: The 43-year-old allowed fewer than four runs for the third time in eight starts this season as his ERA fell from 7.22 to 6.80.
May 10 12:24 PM PT1:24 PM MT2:24 PM CT3:24 PM ET15:24 ET19:24 GMT3:24 12:24 PM MST2:24 PM EST2:54 PM VEN23:24 UAE2:24 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 1-4, allowing eight runs on eight hits in 5.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Houston Astros 8-3 on Tuesday. Colon struck out three, ending the game with a 7.22 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon is 0-2 with an 11.66 ERA over his last three starts, allowing five homers in 14 2/3 innings.
May 4 10:01 PM PT11:01 PM MT12:01 AM CT1:01 AM ET1:01 ET5:01 GMT13:01 10:01 PM MST12:01 AM EST12:31 AM VEN9:01 UAE12:01 AM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 1-3, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks in 4.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the New York Mets 16-5 on Wednesday. Colon did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 6.27 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon has been torched for 15 runs and 28 hits over 16 innings in his last three starts for an 8.44 ERA.
Apr. 29 1:46 PM PT2:46 PM MT3:46 PM CT4:46 PM ET16:46 ET20:46 GMT4:46 1:46 PM MST3:46 PM EST4:16 PM VEN0:46 UAE (+1)3:46 PM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed six runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 10-8 on Friday. Colon struck out five, ending the game with a 5.59 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season. Analysis: Colon has been tagged for at least four runs in three of his last four starts and has given up a combined 21 hits in the last two. However, he could be a good play Wednesday when he pitches at home against the Mets. He held his former team to one run and two hits in six innings in his Braves debut, and in his only home start this year, Colon limited San Diego to one run and one hit in seven innings.
Apr. 16 5:06 PM PT6:06 PM MT7:06 PM CT8:06 PM ET20:06 ET0:06 GMT8:06 5:06 PM MST7:06 PM EST7:36 PM VEN4:06 UAE (+1)7:06 PM CT-Colon allowed just one hit - a solo homer in the second inning - over seven masterful frames to defeat the Padres on Sunday. The ageless right-hander added six strikeouts and issued only one walk. Analysis: The 43-year-old was tagged for six runs over four innings in his previous start, but threw six innings of one-run ball against his former Mets team in his season debut. Colon's next outing comes against the Phillies, a team he went 7-2 with a 2.92 ERA against over the previous two years.
Apr. 6 7:15 AM PT8:15 AM MT9:15 AM CT10:15 AM ET10:15 ET14:15 GMT22:15 7:15 AM MST9:15 AM EST9:45 AM VEN18:15 UAE9:15 AM CT-Returning to Citi Field, Colon allowed a solo homer, one other hit and fanned six in six innings of a 3-1, 12-inning victory over the Mets on Wednesday. Analysis: Colon was perhaps the most popular Mets player over the previous three seasons. He led the team in wins, starts and innings last year, then became a free agent, left the pitching-rich Mets and signed with a guaranteed spot in the Braves' rotation. The Mets honored Colon with a pregame montage on the video board, highlighting his pitching, fielding and first career home run last year.
