Colon named NL Player of the Week


Major League Baseball named Bartolo Colon Co-NL Player of the Week for the week of May 2-8, with Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist, yesterday afternoon. Colon went 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA last week, with one walk and twelve strikeouts. A few notable accomplishments over the past week include, on May 2nd Colon tossed eight shutout innings against Atlanta, to move past Pedro Martinez into second place with 220 wins by a Dominican-born pitcher. On May 7th against San Diego, he picked up the win and became the oldest player to hit his first major league home run. This was Colon’s fifth Player of the Week honor, and his second award in the last two years with Mets. He won once last year during the week of August 31-September 6. In recognition of his National League Player of the Week Award, Colon will receive a custom watch. The award couldn’t have gone to a better individual than Colon.
