Colon is 2-7 with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP at night.
During the day, the veteran righty is 6-2 with a 2.36 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP.
He easily could be 7-1, but the Yankees couldn't offer much run support in his last day start -- a 2-0 loss to Baltimore last Sunday.
Fortunately for the Yankees, Colon gets the ball Saturday afternoon against Toronto, on six days rest.
Joe Girardi hinted after Colon's last start the he preferred to start him during the day.
