Report: Bartolo Colon, Braves agree to deal
Friday November 11th, 2016

The Bartolo Colon era is over in New York.

The 43-year-old starting pitcher has agreed to terms on a free-agent contract with the Atlanta Braves, pending a physical,’s Mark Bowman reports. It marks the end of a rather fruitful three-year stint with the Mets that saw the righthander selected to his fourth career All-Star Game in 2016.

Colon went 15–8 with a 3.43 ERA over 191 2/3 innings last season, striking out 128 batters.

This marks the second signing of a veteran starter by Atlanta this week, after the team signed 42-year-old knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to a one-year deal on Thursday.
