Now Commenting On:

Bartolo Colon has been scratched from Monday's start. Carlos Torres will start for the Mets.

Colon's mother is critically ill and he is flying home to be with her, Terry Collins said.

Collins said he hopes to get four -- maybe five -- innings out of Torres.

The team expects to put Colon on the bereavement list on Tuesday, which will allow them to add another pitcher in his place.
