The New York Yankees probably won’t be counting on Bartolo Colon this season.

What could be clear soon: Bartolo Colon is not the answer at No. 5. His numbers were not that bad in his first outing—one run, two hits, two innings against the Phillies on Saturday. What doesn’t look so hot is Colon’s physique. Never svelte, he admitted to being 25 pounds overweight when he reported. Apparently he did more than rehab when sitting out the 2010 season.

Another candidate, Freddy Garcia, is scheduled for his first start on Thursday.

What has impressed early are the Yankees’ youngsters—22-year-old Dellin Betances and 19-year-old Manny Banuelos. Betances’ fastball was timed at 97 mph on Sunday, according to mlb.com, and Banuelos, a lefty, was throwing 93 on Monday.
