The New York Mets recently signed 40-year-old starting pitcher Bartolo Colon, and while he's always been a bit husky, it doesn't exactly look like he's in playing shape.

The Mets officially welcomed Colon with the following tweets from spring training. He's listed at 265 pounds, but he looks quite a bit larger judging from these pictures.

ESPN's Adam Rubin provided the following about Colon's weight:

Listed at 265 pounds by the Mets, Colon indicated that is not a concern.

"I'm not worried about my weight," he said. "I've always been a big guy and I've always pitched that way. I'm comfortable with that."

If Colon can post an ERA near his 2.65 from last season, I'm sure the Mets won't mind what kind of weight he's carrying around.
