Colon, the 28th pitcher and 11th starter used by the Twins in 2017, started the season with the Atlanta Braves before being released.

Clayton Kershaw pitches for the first time since the All-Star break, trying extend a couple of big winning streaks for the Dodgers.

He has struggled to an 8.19 ERA in 14 appearances this season and surrendered four runs on eight hits across four-plus innings against the Yankees in his Twins debut on Tuesday. "It could have turned out better, that's for sure". Luckily, the Twins picked him up.

Colon (2-9) allowed eight hits and four runs with no walks and three strikeouts in four innings against the Yankees. And the thing I was always impressed with, from afar and then being on his team, the command of his fastball.

Ronald Torreyes led off with a single, Brett Gardner and Gary Sanchez followed with sharply hit doubles, and Molitor came to get a pitcher he once faced himself, two decades ago.

"We're in a tough stretch where we're not playing great and we go out there and make a move still, that makes you feel like the front office and the team believes in us", third baseman Chase Headley said. But Colon - who was warmly welcomed by the 33,114 fans in the stands before the game, and received a rousing ovation as he left (despite actually increasing his season ERA from 8.14 to 8.19) - was pleased with the debut.

But Joe Girardi, the Yankees manager when Colon put up an 8-10 record with a 4.00 ERA in 2011, said he wasn't surprised the righthander is still going. "I think that the movement that he has is still really good, so it took our guys a little time to figure him out".

In the Monday opener, the Twins secured a 4-2 win. But that's all the offense the Twins could provide their new teammate.
