Bartolo Colon agrees to minor league deal with Yankees

Colon_250 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.
