Bartolo Colon lost a no-hit bid in the seventh-inning, but the Mets held on to beat the Mariners, 3-2, Wednesday afternoon.
The Mets are trying hard to trade Colon (Knobler, July 22), and the Giants have expressed interest (ESPN Deportes, July 22). Interested teams are asking the Mets to pay a portion of Colon’s $11 million salary for 2015, according to columnist Joel Sherman (NY Post, July 23). However, Sandy Alderson would prefer not to do that (Carig, July 22).
Ruben Tejada was hit in the head with a fastball in the fifth inning. He showed no concussion symptoms after the game and flew with the team to Milwaukee after the game.
