Bartolo Colon Mulling Retirement After Signing Contract with Minnesota Twins

Bartolo Colon Mulling Retirement After Signing Contract with Minnesota Twins”

A four-time All-Star, Colon made his major-league debut in 1997 and the Twins will be his 10th major-league team. If Colon continues to get rocked and fails to deliver a respectable start in Los Angeles next week, he could decide to end his career before the Twins pull the plug on this experiment.

The Braves signed Colon to a one-year, $ 12.5 million contract last offseason but designated him for assignment after a 2-8 record and a 8.14 ERA in 13 starts. Kershaw has never faced the White Sox on the road. "I've been playing through some pain the last couple of days and hopefully, it's nothing big", he said.

On the day Michael Pineda had Tommy John surgery, Cessa's performance underscored the need for another pitcher to stabilize the rotation. The Yankees started to hit him more and hit harder by their third time through the order, knocking him out of the game with zero outs in the fifth inning after a single and two doubles tied the score at 3-3.

"It was pretty incredible". Brian Dozier tripled home a run, Miguel Sano scorched a pitch 420 feet into the bullpens for another, and the Yankees walked in a run. Girardi said. "He did a good job of controlling damage, but he just didn't have command".

For the Wednesday game, the Yankees will be bringing out LHP Jordan Montgomery. The 44-year-old right-hander didn't show much in his tuneup start for Triple-A Rochester either, as he allowed 4 hits and 4 runs over 3 2/3 frames with 5 strikeouts and 2 walks.

David Agus, director of the USC Norris Westside Cancer Center and CBS News medical contributor, said on "CBS This Morning". The concept, called CAR-T, was devised by the University of Pennsylvania and drug maker Novartis Corp.

He's still a circus clown, but this isn't his first rodeo, and as the Strib's Jim Souhan wrote, the Twins could use a veteran personality in the clubhouse, a la Torii Hunter in 2015, the only other season since 2010 the Twins have been in a playoff hunt in July.
