Report: Bartolo Colon interested in Mets reunion
Bartolo Colon wants to return to the New York Mets.
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Colon would go as far as to take a minor league deal to return to the Mets, where he played from 2014 through 2016.
However, the interest is not entirely mutual.
Heard Bartolo Colon might be open to a minor-league deal, but only for a return to Mets. Sounds like the Mets' interest is minimal at this point.

At this point, it seems more like nostalgia than any real need if the Mets were to bring Colon back. He posted an ugly 6.48 ERA last season between Atlanta and Minnesota, though he does have some incentive to keep playing as long as he can.
