The Rangers are working on a big pitching signing.

Or, perhaps, more appropriately: Working on signing a big pitcher.

Big Bartolo Colon, king of the pitching GIF, and the Rangers have been engaged in significant talks on a minor league contract, a source confirmed after's Jesse Sanchez reported growing momentum.

Colon, who turns 45 in May, is looking to pitch in his 22nd season. At 5-11, 280 pounds, he is an anomaly on many fronts. The big right-hander was 7-14 last year, splitting the season between Atlanta and Minnesota. After an awful start with the Braves, he went 5-6 with Minnesota and compiled a 5.18 ERA in 80 innings over 15 starts. He has pitched with 11 major league teams since making his debut with Cleveland in 1997.
