MEXICO CITY (AP) — Bartolo Colón is headed to Mexico.
The right-hander, who will turn 47 in May, has signed with the Monclova Acereros of the Mexican Baseball League.
The Acereros, defending champions of the Triple-A circuit, announced the signing of the Dominican right-hander Friday. The team didn’t provide details of the contract.
“Bartolo Colón would be an important piece of the pitching staff of the current champions, becoming one of the bigger signings in our baseball history,” the team said in a press release. “The ‘Big Sexy’ show would be something the Monclova fans will be to enjoy.”
Colón hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2018 with the Texas Rangers.
