Rumored Colon trade
1) The Expos, Marlins and Reds have been working on a deal that would send Bartolo Colon to the Marlins, Brad Penny to the Reds, a group of prospects to the Expos, with other fringe players involved in the deal. But, those talks have fallen apart, due to concerns over the health of Penny's arm.
According to Marlins GM Larry Beinfest, "At this time we are not optimistic about landing Bartolo Colon. I don't know if that involves further discussion or not. We have certainly made an effort here. We have had discussions, but I don't know where it goes from here.
2) John Franco, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, threw 20 pitches off a mound yesterday and isn't expected to throw off a mound again until spring training. The Mets are hoping he'll be ready to pitch in June.
After a 4.05 ERA/0 RSAA in 2001, Franco missed the entire 2002 season and has a 2.75 career ERA, compared to his league average of 3.92, and 153 RSAA in 998 games.
3) Astros P Carlos Hernandez will be examined by noted doctor James Andrews, due to discomfort in his left shoulder.
After starting his career with a 1.02 ERA/7 RSAA in 3 starts in 2001, Hernandez had a 4.38 ERA/-1 RSAA in 23 games (21 starts) in 2002.

7) The Diamondbacks re-signed P Elmer Dessens to a 2 year, $7.3 million contract, with a team option for 2005.
After 4.28 ERA/12 RSAA and 4.48 ERA/-4 RSAA seasons, Dessens had a surprise 3.03 ERA/28 RSAA in 30 starts. He has a 4.29 career ERA, compared to his league average of 4.34, and 16 RSAA in 165 games and has never had consecutive years with a positive RSAA.
