Watch Bartolo Colon work out at his baseball academy to refine his game even further

In the genre of offseason workout videos, Bartolo Colon's are blockbusters. Every winter, he travels to his baseball academy in the Dominican Republic and puts all of MLB on notice: He will come back bigger, stronger, Bartolo-er.

Last year, he slammed some giant ropes in January and hit the first home run of his 19-year career in May. This year, via MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez:

Seeing the master at work gave former teammate Noah Syndergaard some very mixed emotions:

Bartolo needs 11 wins to surpass Hall of Famer Juan Marichal as the winningest pitcher from the Dominican Republic. If he keeps working out like this, who knows what he'll accomplish with the Braves in 2017.
