It is official, according Ben Shpigel of the New York Times, New York Yankee pitcher Bartolo Colon will be placed on the 15-day DL, following a misstep while running to first-base to get an out.

Whether Colon will have to be out longer has not been decided, but regardless it is another blow to the already injury riddled Yankees.

Colon has been the biggest surprise and a sure contender for the MLB Comeback Player of the Year, which not most likely pends on how long he is sidelined.

In his nine Yankee starts, Colon has a 4-3 record, posting a 3.39 ERA, with 66 strikeouts, one complete game shutout and has gone just shy of 72 innings total.

On Saturday, Colon was on his way to what could have been his second complete game of the season, as he held the Cleveland Indians scoreless through 6 2/3 innings.

As the saying goes, When It Rains, It Pours, but usually a rainbow follows, with a pot of good luck.

Okay, the was cheesy and ridiculous but better to think positive when you realize your team is in some serious trouble.
