Colon gets nod for Friday start

Although right-handed pitcher Bartolo Colon has not been officially announced as one of the starting pitchers in Friday's doubleheader, pitching coach Don Cooper confirmed that Colon will throw a side session Wednsday and be ready to pitch Friday.

Colon went on the 15-day disabled list on June 9 (retroactive to June 8) with left knee soreness.
