Bartolo Colon has more wins than any other Major League pitcher from Latin America, but he has another lofty goal.
"This year is almost getting close to the end. But there is one thing that I will look for, is Juan Marichal has more innings than me," Colon said through an interpreter. "For the Dominicans, I want to beat him also."
Colon would have to throw 61 2/3 more innings to pass Marichal on the innings pitched list. To pass his fellow countryman, Colon would likely have to return for a 22nd season in 2019.
Marichal, who threw 244 complete games in his career, pitched 3,507 innings in 471 games over 16 years.
Colon is at 3,445 2/3 career innings, the most among active pitchers.
