The ageless wonder that goes by Colon continued to pitch solid baseball in his last outing at came against the Detroit Tigers. He put in five innings of work giving up two earned off of three hits while striking out four and walking one.
In 43.1 innings of work, Colon has posted a solid strikeout (6.02 K/9) to walk (0.83 BB/9) rate, but has struggled with the long ball giving up eight in his last four starts. His 3.32 ERA is encouraging, but once his lucky .211 BABIP regresses, that ERA should fall more towards his 4.85 FIP as his 43.9% hard contact percentage will eventually be his downfall.
Texas has been playing sub-par baseball in the last week winning two of their five contests. During that time their lineup has been struggling as they are slashing just .210/.267/.357 to go with 12 extra-base hits and only 12 RBI.
We thought Ariel Miranda was going to be given the spot start here but late Tuesday night the M’s announced that Christian Bergman would be called up. The 30-year-old went 3-3 with a 3.40 ERA in eight starts for Tacoma. He was 4-5 with a 5.00 ERA last year for Seattle.
Seattle will have to figure out and adjust to life without Robinson Cano as he was just struck with an 80-game suspension for violating drug agreement.
Seattle has been playing solid baseball winning four of their last seven contests. During that span their lineup has been solid as well slashing .272/.357/.427 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 32 RBI.

Bergman will be working on a spot start, and with pitchers being creatures of habit, this may not bode well for whoever they choose. Seattle should be able to knock Colon for some runs, but I expect Texas to just out score Seattle in this outing.
