SP Bartolo Colon Signs One-Year Deal with Atlanta Braves

November 11th, 2016

The Atlanta Braves have gone back to the 40-plus well for the second day in a row, signing free agent pitcher Bartolo Colon to a one-year, $12.5 million deal. A day after signing R.A. Dickey, Atlanta brought in Colon's 3.43 ERA and 1.21 WHIP from last season with the hopes that he can bring some short-term stability to its rotation before the young arms in the farm system are ready to take over.
