A major league source observed Colon’s start with the Charlotte Knights yesterday and compared it favorably to his April 23 start against the Baltimore Orioles:

“He definitely threw more breaking pitches and change-ups. You could notice he was throwing more sliders and wasn’t afraid to throw them to left-handers as well as right-handers. He was throwing in the 88-to-90 (mph) range. It looked like when he wanted to throw harder, he did. He was throwing more four-seam fastballs. I could tell because he was trying to raise the hitters’ eye level.”

UPDATE: Colon’s next start will be Tuesday for Class-A Kannapolis against Savannah.
