Bartolo Colon made the worst start of the season by any Yankee starter Thursday night as he allowed eight runs, only three earned, on six hits, two walks, and no strikeouts as he got just two outs before he left the game. The Yankees went on to lose the game 16-7 in the first game back after the All-Star break.
Colon didn’t look like he was moving well out on the field and his pitches didn’t have the same crispness they had in the first half. So this start does raise concerns that he might not be 100 percent over his hamstring injury. It might not be a bad idea to call-up Ivan Nova and put Colon on the DL for a little while to be sure he is completely healthy.
