WHBF-TV, a CBS affiliate for the Quad Cities, reports that Ozzie Guillen was present in the Dominican Republic yesterday to watch Bartolo Colon pitch. Guillen was sent to gauge Colon’s health.
Health is the reason the Mets reportedly backed off on Colon. The big righty pitched for the White Sox in 2003, racking up 242 innings with a 3.87 ERA. Chicago’s rotation could use a little depth, in Ken Rosenthal’s opinion.
