Zambrano to the Jays

At TSN, they report on the signing of Victor Zambrano to the Blue Jays:

Unlike the recent signings of starters John Thomson and Tomo Ohka, Zambrano won't be 100 per cent at spring training. But he could be ready by mid-season, perhaps able to give the Jays a boost should one of their starters struggle or get injured.

''We've always liked his arm,'' said general manager J.P. Ricciardi. ''We like that he's pitched in the AL East with some success. There's still some rehab that needs to go on but we sent someone to watch him throw in Venezuela and it looks like he's coming back.''

The deal includes a club option for 2008.

Zambrano was 1-2 with a 6.75 earned-run average in five starts with the New York Mets last year before he came out of a game May 6 and was diagnosed with a torn flexor muscle.
