Bartolo Colon and Mets agree to $7.25-million deal

Right-hander Bartolo Colon has agreed to a $7.25-million, one-year contract to remain with the New York Mets, a person familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

"I know there's talks with him going on," Manager Terry Collins said. "We told him, 'Look, there may be a starting spot for you early in the season.' So I hope they can get something done."

Colon, 42, was 14-13 with a 4.16 earned-run average in 31 starts and two relief appearances this year, and had a 2.08 ERA in seven relief appearances during the postseason.
