June 6 2:01 PM PT3:01 PM MT4:01 PM CT5:01 PM ET17:01 ET21:01 GMT5:01 2:01 PM MST4:01 PM EST4:31 PM VEN1:01 UAE (+1)4:01 PM CT-The Atlanta Braves have placed right-hander Bartolo Colon on the 10-day disabled list with a strain in his left side. The move Tuesday comes one day after Colon allowed eight runs in 3 2/3 innings in an 11-4 loss to Philadelphia. Following the game, the 44-year-old Colon said, ''Physically and mentally I still feel good.''
Analysis: Braves manager Brian Snitker says Colon has received treatment ''for a while'' for the oblique problem, but added he doesn't believe the injury is ''huge.'' Colon (2-7) has the highest ERA in the majors among qualified pitchers, at 7.78. He has failed to pitch more than 5 2/3 innings in eight straight starts, the longest streak of his career.
June 6 9:34 PM PT10:34 PM MT11:34 PM CT12:34 AM ET0:34 ET4:34 GMT12:34 9:34 PM MST11:34 PM EST12:04 AM VEN8:34 UAE11:34 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-7, allowing eight runs on seven hits and two walks in 3.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 11-4 on Monday. Colon struck out four, ending the game with a 7.78 ERA and 1.71 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The 44-year-old lost his third consecutive start and has permitted at least seven runs in each of those outings, and it appears he's finally reached the end of the line. If the Braves were planning on moving Colon at the trade deadline, it'll be a very tough sell to get anything in return.
May 31 9:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET12:37 ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST12:07 PM VEN20:37 UAE11:37 AM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-6, allowing nine runs - two earned - on seven hits and one walk in 2.1 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Los Angeles Angels 9-3 on Tuesday. Colon struck out two, ending the game with a 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Colon was undone a bit by his defense in this one. Although he gave up seven hits and got just seven outs in his latest unimpressive outing, Atlanta seemed to take the loss as a result of group ineptitude. ''I don't know that I've ever witnessed anything like that, and I've been at all the levels,'' Braves manager Brian Snitker said. ''I don't know. It was a little bit of everything. I don't know, because I didn't count, how many extra outs we gave them.''
May 25 12:40 PM PT1:40 PM MT2:40 PM CT3:40 PM ET15:40 ET19:40 GMT3:40 12:40 PM MST2:40 PM EST3:10 PM VEN23:40 UAE2:40 PM CT-Bartolo Colon fell to 2-5, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-4 on Thursday. Colon struck out one, ending the game with a 6.96 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: An All-Star last season for the Mets, Colon has been charged with five or more runs in half of his 10 starts with the Braves.
May 20 8:09 PM PT9:09 PM MT10:09 PM CT11:09 PM ET23:09 ET3:09 GMT11:09 8:09 PM MST10:09 PM EST10:39 PM VEN7:09 UAE (+1)10:09 PM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed two runs - one earned - on seven hits in 4.1 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Washington Nationals 5-2 on Saturday. Colon struck out six, ending the game with a 6.38 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Colon labored again in this one, throwing 97 pitches before he was removed with the Braves holding a 3-2 lead. The soon-to-be 44-year-old hasn't lasted past 5 2/3 innings in any of his past five starts, a stretch in which he's 1-2 with an 8.25 ERA.

Colon struck out one.
Analysis: The 43-year-old allowed fewer than four runs for the third time in eight starts this season as his ERA fell from 7.22 to 6.80.

Colon struck out three, ending the game with a 7.22 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Colon is 0-2 with an 11.66 ERA over his last three starts, allowing five homers in 14 2/3 innings.

Colon did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 6.27 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Colon has been torched for 15 runs and 28 hits over 16 innings in his last three starts for an 8.44 ERA.
Apr. 29 1:46 PM PT2:46 PM MT3:46 PM CT4:46 PM ET16:46 ET20:46 GMT4:46 1:46 PM MST3:46 PM EST4:16 PM VEN0:46 UAE (+1)3:46 PM CT-Bartolo Colon allowed six runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 10-8 on Friday. Colon struck out five, ending the game with a 5.59 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Colon has been tagged for at least four runs in three of his last four starts and has given up a combined 21 hits in the last two. However, he could be a good play Wednesday when he pitches at home against the Mets. He held his former team to one run and two hits in six innings in his Braves debut, and in his only home start this year, Colon limited San Diego to one run and one hit in seven innings.
Apr. 16 5:06 PM PT6:06 PM MT7:06 PM CT8:06 PM ET20:06 ET0:06 GMT8:06 5:06 PM MST7:06 PM EST7:36 PM VEN4:06 UAE (+1)7:06 PM CT-Colon allowed just one hit - a solo homer in the second inning - over seven masterful frames to defeat the Padres on Sunday. The ageless right-hander added six strikeouts and issued only one walk.
Analysis: The 43-year-old was tagged for six runs over four innings in his previous start, but threw six innings of one-run ball against his former Mets team in his season debut. Colon's next outing comes against the Phillies, a team he went 7-2 with a 2.92 ERA against over the previous two years.
Apr. 6 7:15 AM PT8:15 AM MT9:15 AM CT10:15 AM ET10:15 ET14:15 GMT22:15 7:15 AM MST9:15 AM EST9:45 AM VEN18:15 UAE9:15 AM CT-Returning to Citi Field, Colon allowed a solo homer, one other hit and fanned six in six innings of a 3-1, 12-inning victory over the Mets on Wednesday.
Analysis: Colon was perhaps the most popular Mets player over the previous three seasons. He led the team in wins, starts and innings last year, then became a free agent, left the pitching-rich Mets and signed with a guaranteed spot in the Braves' rotation. The Mets honored Colon with a pregame montage on the video board, highlighting his pitching, fielding and first career home run last year.
