Veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon admitted that he is pondering retirement after his first outing with the Minnesota Twins. Meanwhile, Pablo Sandoval has been released by the Boston Red Sox and is now working on a contract with his old team, the San Franciso Giants. Also, Nolan Arendo has a historic day as the Colorado Rockies won their fourth straight game.

Colon says next start important for future

Bartolo Colon, who recently joined the Minnesota Twins, says that he next start again the Los Angeles Dodgers with be an important game in terms of if he will continue to play. Colon says that he is grateful to the Twins for giving him a chance, as he started his first game for them two days ago against the New York Yankees.

However, he says his poor play this season is making him think about calling it a career at age 44.

The Atlanta Braves originally signed Colon to a one-year, $12.5 million deal, but designated him for assignment after his poor play. He was then released and the Twins signed him on July 7th. Following his game on Tuesday, he was the 28th different pitcher and 11th different starter for the Twins this season. He also became the oldest pitcher to start a game in Twins history. This season Colon sports a 2-9 record, allowing 100 hits against only 45 strikeouts with an 8.19 ERA.

Sandoval returning to the Giants

Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox release their big free agent signing of 2014, Pablo Sandoval, after a disappointing run with the team.

He signed a five-year, $95 million dollar contract and the Red Sox will now owe him the remaining $49 million after Sandoval was released when he didn't report after being designated for assignment. Now, Sandoval is returning to the San Francisco Giants pending a physical and will start playing in Triple-A Sacramento.

In three seasons with the Red Sox, Sandoval only played in 161 games and had 575 at-bats. He had 136 hits, 53 runs, 14 home runs and his batting average was .237.

Nolan Arendo's historic day

Nolan Arendo had himself a historic day, as his Colorado Rockies easily rolled past the San Diego Padres 18-4.

In six at-bats, Arendo racked up 5 hits, 4 runs, 7 RBI and hit three home runs. He became the third player this season and the first in Rockies history to have at least 5 hits and three home runs in a game. The other two players to do so this year were the Reds Scooter Gennett and the Nationals Anthony Rendon. He also became only the 17th player in MLB history to hit for the cycle and have a three home run game in the same season.
