Scouting Report
: A Cy Young award winner in 2005, Colon struggled through injury problems in 2006 and 2007, including a torn rotator cuff, from which pitchers are rarely able to fully return.   Prior to his injuries, his 4-seamer regularly hit the mid 90s, complemented by an excellent sinker, a decent slider, and an average changeup.  In March 2008, Colon's fastball was sitting between 88 and 91 mph.   In early May, he was getting up around 93 mph (pay no attention to the inaccurate radar readings of 97 mph from the McCoy Stadium gun).  His command remains very good. If his velocity remains around 92-93 mph, Colon should still have some success as he's smart on the mound and mixes his pitches well.  However, his endurance is an increasing concern, which is not surprising given his size.
