Bartolo Colon's Retirement Announcement Brings End To Mets' Era.

The end of a ‘sexy’ era has come. 50-year-old Bartolo Colon has officially announced retirement from baseball, though he has not pitched in the Majors since 2018.

Bartolo Colon will officially retire as a member of the New York Mets on September 17th. He played for the Mets from 2014-2016, becoming a beloved fan favorite to many.

As a Met, Colon appeared in 98 games, posting a 3.90 ERA in 588.2 innings that was accompanied by a 44-34 record.

Colon was part of the powerful Mets starting rotation of Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz, during the 2016 World Series bid. The retirement of Bartolo "Big Sexy" Colon as a Met now officially caps off the last player of that rotation to leave Citi Field.

Overall, the big righty played for 11 different teams throughout his 21 year career, including a brief year-long stay with the Yankees.
