Oakland Athletics Offseason 2012: Bartolo Colon Reportedly Signs One-Year Deal With A's

Bartolo Colon has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Athletics, according to ESPN’s Jayson Stark on Twitter.

The 38 year-old right-hander earned himself a 4.00 ERA along with a 7.4 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 for the New York Yankees last season in 164 1/3 innings of work. Colon signed a minor league contract with the Yanks last winter and was productive as their 5th starter in 2011, though seemed to slow down as the season went on a bit.

Colon didn’t pitch in 2010 due to injury, and has already had some questionable stem cells treatments to his elbow and rotator cuff. But for the right price, Colon could prove to be a nice pickup for the A’s.

The terms of the contract were not released.
