44-year-old journeyman pitcher Bartolo Colon is “strong like bull.”
Colon, to his credit, has the benefit of having some extra padding, especially in his midsection, weighing close to 300 pounds.
That certainly helped him during Wednesday’s game, when he got drilled in the gut by a 102 mph comebacker, which came off the bat of Jean Segura.
And yet, he was unfazed, and remained in the game.
Colon truly is an ageless wonder. This puts his greatness in perspective.
