• Colon returning to Athletics with drug regrets

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Feb 19, 2013
    Bartolo Colon knew he had failed a drug test for about six weeks before he got hit with a 50-game suspension last season. Not only did the unlikely AL West champions re-sign Colon, they gave him a raise with a $3 million, one-year contract. He made several starts for the Oakland Athletics while knowing he probably wouldn't participate in the pennant race. Through a translator, the former Cy Young Award winner with 171 career victories expressed regret for his past mistakes and hope for his future.
