Bartolo Colon agrees to minor league deal with Yankees
Bartolo Colon's fortunes have dipped since winning 21 games and the Cy Young Award with the Angels in 2005. But Colon appears to be ready for a comeback attempt, this time as part of the New York Yankees organization.
The 37-year-old right-handed pitcher has agreed to a minor league contract with the Yankees. He has been out of the major leagues since being released by the Chicago White Sox in September 2009 after going 3-6 with a 4.19 earned-run average in 12 starts.
Colon went 46-33 in four seasons with the Angels from 2004-07. He has a 14-21 record since going 21-8 in 2005.
