News: Colon allowed six runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings in the Mets' 7-2 loss to the Phillies on Saturday. Impact: Colon was rolling, shutting out the Phillies through four innings before Marlon Byrd homered leading off the fifth. It fell apart for him in the sixth, though, as he allowed singles to six of the first seven batters he faced before getting pulled. Unless a team makes a last-minute offer to the Mets, it looks like Colon will remain with the team for the remainder of 2014 but possibly get dealt this offseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon has drawn trade interest after clearing revocable waivers, but the Mets' ability to deal him may depend on how much of next year's $11 million salary they are willing to cover, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: The Dodgers, Royals and Angels are all believed to have varying degrees of interest in Colon. The Mets reportedly are willing to pay up to $2 million of his 2015 salary, though that might not be enough to return an attractive-enough package to warrant trading him now as opposed to the offseason. For now, Colon is slated to start Saturday; the trade deadline for postseason availability is Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Colon allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five in six innings in the Mets' 11-3 win over the Dodgers on Sunday. Impact: Colon earned his 12th win of the year in the start. He has now put together three straight quality starts, allowing four runs total, and his ERA improved to 3.82 after the strong outing. He'll be back on the mound Saturday against the Phillies.(RotoWire, )

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 earned the win in an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday in his first start since the death of his mother. Impact: Colon (12-10, 3.82 ERA) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings and struck out five in his first start since his mother Adriana passed away on Monday from breast cancer. After the game, the 41-year-old right-hander returned to the Dominican Republic to attend her funeral. (STATS, 11:55am)

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, )
