Zambrano is still a possibility

Jeremy Cothran at North Jersey, writes about the Mets and Victor Zambrano:

Free-agent pitcher Victor Zambrano is still a possibility to re-sign, according to a person close to those negotiations, but nothing is expected to be finalized in the near future.

Zambrano, who has offers from other clubs on the table, is still recovering from surgery last May for a torn ligament in his right elbow. The Venezuelan right-hander has been inconsistent in his three years with the Mets, compiling a record of 10-14 and an ERA of 4.25, but is another arm for the team's depleted rotation.

I think Zambrano would be a great pickup on a minor league contract. I think he's a better pitcher then Mets fans give him credit for and he was playing hurt. I would go as far as to say (maybe not out of ST) he would end up a starter.
