Colon: “I don’t know anything about” trade rumors

Bartolo Colon did his best to avoid the subject of trade rumors after his win over the Mariners on Wednesday, calling them a “decision for upper management.”

“I can’t control that stuff,” Colon said.

What Colon can control is making himself attractive to contenders, should the Mets fall out of realistic contention and decide to deal him. After posting a 5.88 ERA over his previous four starts, Colon rebounded by taking a perfect game into the seventh against the Mariners. He finished with 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball.

ESPN Deportes reported earlier this week that the Giants have expressed interest in the 41-year-old right-hander.
