 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Suspended pitcher Bartolo Colon is getting a second chance with the Oakland Athletics, agreeing to terms on a one-year contract.
The AL West champions made the announcement Saturday. The 39-year-old Colon was suspended for 50 games on Aug. 22 after testing positive for testosterone. The ban will run five games into the 2013 season.
The former Cy Young winner went 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA in 24 starts for Oakland last season, his 15th in the majors.
Oakland could have a spot at the back end of its rotation after lefty Dallas Braden chose free agency rather than accept a minor league assignment. The status of Brandon McCarthy is unclear after he was hit in the head by a line drive last month and needed brain surgery.
