White Sox Release Bartolo Colon

The White Sox released pitcher Bartolo Colon today, according to VP of communications Scott Reifert (via Twitter).  The big righty signed for $1MM in January and debuted late due to offseason surgery for bone chips in his elbow. A knee injury popped up in June, and Colon disappeared for a while instead of rehabbing in Charlotte.  He was activated in July, but the elbow starting barking soon after. 

Colon's make-good one-year deals with the White Sox and Red Sox were disappointments, so the 36-year-old will have to settle for a minor league contract next year.  He didn't pitch all that badly when he was out there, with a 4.09 ERA in those 19 starts.
