Braves' Colon to remain on DL with stiff back

Bartolo Colon's return to the Atlanta Braves' rotation has been put on hold, as manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that the 44-year-old right-hander will remain on the DL a bit longer because of a stiff back.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Matt Adams has done a great job filling in for Freddie Freeman in Atlanta (slugging .658 with the Braves), but once Freeman returns there may not be room for him. With today's pitcher-heavy rosters, it's hard to carry a 1B-only bench player. How about a trade to the Astros, where Carlos Beltran hasn't been that good, or the Royals, who could use a DH?
