DETROIT — Bartolo Colon threw two innings in extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla., today. He threw 19 pitches during the game, then threw another 16 pitches in a bullpen session. He was only scheduled to pitch two innings, in which he gave up a hit and got a strikeout.
Colon is expected to rejoin the team in Detroit this week. As we reported on Friday, Colon will be re-evaluated by the major league training staff, then will head to Pawtucket for a start on Saturday. It’s not yet known how many starts he will need at the minor league level, but the plan is to build up his pitches and innings so he can make a start for the Red Sox in the near future.
