Jasen Vinlove / USA TODAY Sports

Bartolo Colon wasn't out of the big leagues for long.

The 44-year-old right-hander will make his first start for the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at Target Field, according to multiple reports.

Colon was signed to a minor-league deal by the Twins last week after he was released by the Atlanta Braves on July 6.

The veteran and owner of a 2005 Cy Young award was 2-8 with an 8.14 ERA prior to his release.

He made one start for the Twins' Triple-A affiliate in Rochester this past Thursday, allowing four earned runs in 3 2/3 innings, while striking out five.

Over the course of his 20-year career in the show, the four-time All-Star owns a 235-170 record with a 4.02 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 522 appearances, 513 of which have been starts.
