Bartolo Colon notches win No. 241
Monday was quite a day for anniversaries.
Facing James Shields of the San Diego Padres, with a man on base and two outs in the second inning, Colon mashed a 1-1 fastball more than 365 feet over the left field wall at Petco Park.
The then-42-year-old savored every second of the moment. Actually, he savored almost 31 seconds as he rounded the bases.
On Monday, a club source told the Star Telegram's Jeff Wilson that the Rangers were not interested in pursuing Matt Harvey of the New York Mets. Harvey was designated for assignment Saturday by the club after refusing an assignment to the minor leagues.
That news means Colon will continue to have opportunities to pick up starts.
