Colon To Start Tuesday Despite Bad Outing, Hamstring

Jul 16, 2011 3:41 PM EST

The Yankees plan to start right-hander Bartolo Colon on Tuesday against the Rays despite a poor outing on Thursday and concerns about his hamstring.

Colon was admittedly tentative at times on Thursday and he lasted less than an inning in an eventual 16-7 loss to the Blue Jays.

"I think he just has to get it out of his head, because he tells me he's not feeling anything," manager Joe Girardi said. "If he's not feeling anything, he's got to put what happened behind him and just go out and pitch and cover the base normally."

Colon missed three weeks last month with a hamstring issue suffered while covering first base.
