New York Yankees: Bartolo Colon Nothing Special in »

Most of the questions the New York Yankees have this spring training surround their starting rotation. Will A.J. Burnett show signs of bouncing back, and who will win the fourth and fifth spots in the rotation? One of the pitchers trying to win one of the spots in the Yankees’ rotation is Bartolo Colon.
