(AP) Bartolo Colon will start for the Oakland Athletics in Game 1 of their AL division series against Detroit on Friday night, his first postseason appearance in eight years.


Manager Bob Melvin made the announcement before a workout Tuesday at the Coliseum, where the grounds crew worked fto prepare the field two days after the NFL's Oakland Raiders played a home game. The Game 2 starter for the AL West champions is rookie Sonny Gray. A.J. Griffin is out with elbow tendinitis.


A year after Colon missed the playoffs for Oakland while serving a 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test, he won 18 games and is getting another chance on baseball's big stage at age 40, and in his first playoff appearance since 2005 with the Angels.
