Mets Rumors: Angels not interested in Bartolo Colon

Mets Rumors:

According to the LA Times, The Angels do not appear to be interested in acquiring New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon.

There is heavy speculation that the Angels, who lost their top starting pitcher, Garrett Richards, to season-ending knee surgery last week and young left-hander Tyler Skaggs to Tommy John surgery in early August, would claim Colon if he got to them on waivers or pursue a trade for him if he cleared waivers.

But 29 teams, including the Angels, passed on Colon through waivers, according to Fox Sports. The Angels could have gained an exclusive 48-hour negotiating window with the Mets had they claimed Colon, but they also would have run the risk of having to assume the pitcher’s hefty contract if the Mets let him go via a waiver claim.
