News: Colon was reinstated from the bereavement list Friday. Impact: The right-hander has rejoined the Mets after spending several days away with his critically ill mother, and is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers. Colon has turned in quality starts in four of his last five turns, with the lone hiccup being a six-run outing against the Giants on Aug. 3.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon (personal) will be placed on the bereavement list, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports. Impact: Colon was scratched from Monday's start to spend time with his ailing mother, who is dealing with a critical illness. The Mets will give Colon all the time he needs to take care of things on the personal front, with Carlos Torres temporarily taking his spot in the rotation and Gonzalez Germen coming up from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his spot on the active roster.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon will not start Monday against the Cubs. Impact: Colon flew home to visit his critically ill mother Monday and will be replaced by Carlos Torres on the mound. It's unclear how long he will require, but the team will likely offer sufficient time for him to do what he needs.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon allowed two runs - one earned - on six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in seven innings in the Mets' 2-1 loss to the Nationals on Wednesday. Impact: Colon was able to work in-and-out of trouble while also mixing in dominant innings. He was cruising into the seventh, but surrendered a leadoff double and then a single, which resulted in a Juan Lagares error, putting both runners in scoring position. A pair of sacrifice flies plated both runs, making Colon, who continues to pitch well, a hard-luck loser.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon allowed one run and six hits over eight innings in Friday's 5-4 win at Philadelphia. Impact: Colon won his 200th career game and improved to 3-1 with a 3.25 ERA over his last four starts.(STATS, 6:45pm)
Fri. Aug 8, 2014
News: Colon turned in eight strong innings Friday night versus the Phillies, giving up just one run on six hits while picking up six strikeouts en route to the 200th victory of his career. Impact: After struggling in his first attempt to reach the 200-win milestone, Colon bounced back for a brilliant effort Friday night. Obviously, the 41-year-old veteran has had a successful career in the big leagues over the past 17 years and seems to still have quite a bit left in the tank. Colon will carry an 11-9 record and sub-4.00 ERA into Wednesday's outing versus the Nationals.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon endured a nightmarish performance in Sunday's 9-0 loss to San Francisco, giving up six runs and eight hits in a season worst-matching 4 2-3 innings. Impact: Though he was coming off back-to-back victories, Colon owns a 5.12 ERA over his last seven starts. He might be too unpredictable to be relied on for the rest of the fantasy season.(STATS, 6:00pm)
