Colon's $12.5M salary with #Braves will be his highest since 2007, when he earned $16M with #Angels .

'Old man' Colón gets a US$12.5M from the Braves

These funds that many assumed to be allocated to Colon can be redistributed in a myriad of ways. He also gave the Mets pitching depth in a season plagued by injuries.
