Two seasons removed from his tenure in Oakland, 43-year-old Bartolo Colon is a free agent again. But does the reliable righty make sense on the 2016 A's?
The A's designated Fernando Abad and Craig Gentry for assignment 10 days ago, but they'll keep both veterans after clearing waivers on Monday.
After reacquiring Jed Lowrie Wednesday, A's GM David Forst said he expects the infielder to play everyday, which could signal another trade on the horizon.
