Ozzie is scouting Bartolo Colon:

Free-agent ace Bartolo Colon could be making a return to Chicago.

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has traveled to the Dominican Republic to see Colon pitch in the Dominican winter league. Guillen says he wanted to see if Colon was healthy because -- if so -- he could be "an important part of the team for the White Sox."

Rotoworld gives us Colon's line: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 K, 0 BB. Buster Olney says "the Mets backed off after taking a closer look at the condition of his right arm."
