The Texas Rangers truly can’t get enough pitching, can they?

After already acquiring starters Doug Fister, Mike Minor, and Matt Moore this offseason, Texas has added Bartolo Colon to the mix, as the 44-year old signed a Minor League deal last Sunday with an invite to Spring Training.

According to MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan, Colon will earn $1.75 million plus incentives.

“Bartolo brings a track record of durability and success in the Major Leagues. He pounds the strike zone and provides quality competition for our rotation,” said Rangers general manager Jon Daniels.

Colon went 7-14 with a 6.48 ERA in 28 games/starts in 2017 for the Atlanta Braves (13 starts, 8.14 ERA) and Minnesota Twins (15 starts, 5.18 ERA).

In 21 Major League seasons for 10 teams since 1997, Colon is 240-176 with a 4.04 ERA.

Colon’s 240 wins and 528 games started ranks first among active pitchers. He also ranks second with 37 complete games (CC Sabathia, 38) and 3,315 1/3 innings pitched (Sabathia, 3,317).
