Bartolo Colon [2]The Athletics are planning to make a one-year offer to free agent pitcher Bartolo Colon, the ace of this year’s staff.

Colon told A’s writers during the playoffs that he might be interested in playing three more years in total. However, the A’s apparently would like to keep Colon, who’s 40 now, on a one-year deal, if possible.
