Are the Twins ready to start Colon? We'll find out this weekend

Twins fans have to wait another day or two for decision on Bartolo Colon

Twins fans will have to wait a little longer until they find out when they will see Bartolo Colon on the mound for Minnesota.

After the 44-year-old was scheduled for a tune-up start with Triple-A Rochester Thursday night, Twins fans did the math and it appeared Colon was on track to start July 18th against the New York Yankees.

However after a lackluster start Thursday, a decision on whether to call up Big Sexy in time for the weekend is officially on hold. Colon surrendered four runs over three innings with five strikeouts and two walks for the Twins' Triple-A affiliate.

"I felt fine. I had to take a long trip last night, so I was a little tired," Colon told the Star Tribune after the game.

Sans Bartolo Colon (for now), the Twins will kick off their post-All-Star break campaign on the road against the AL's hottest first-half team in the Houston Astros.

Jose Berrios is on the mound for the Twins Friday night in Houston.
