Watch: Bartolo Colon chases A.J. Pierzynski on unassisted pickoff

Thursday April 23rd, 2015

All 285 pounds (at least) of Bartolo Colon chased down A.J. Pierzynski during Thursday's Mets-Braves for one of the more unusual pickoffs you'll ever see. 

Pierzynski broke for second too quickly and Colon ran after him, freezing him by faking the throw to first. 

Joe Nathan has torn UCL in right elbow, out for season

It was Colon's first successful pickoff since 2013 and only his fifth in the past 11 years.
