Report: Bartolo Colon Made Available For Trade By New York Mets

Colon, BartoloIt looks like the New York Mets might be regretting one of their offseason signings as Bartolo Colon could be on the move soon.

With the Mets seven games behind a playoff spot during the All-Star break, ESPN New York reports that the team has made Colon available for a trade as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches.

After an 18-win 2013 season in which he had a minuscule¬†2.65 earned run average, the 41-year-old’s ERA is hovering near 4.00 this year with the Mets.

Colon is 8-8 this season with a 3.99 ERA and the Mets are sitting in third-place in the NL East.

ESPN New York also reports that the Mets are looking for improvements at shortstop and a power-hitting outfielder in exchange for their excess pitching which includes players such as Jonathon Niese, Zack Wheeler and Dillon Gee.
