Jose Contreras bound for the NL West?

Nov 30, 2009, 9:30 AM EDT

The Diamond Notes blog translates an article from El Nuevo Herald (a McClatchy-published Spanish language paper published in Miami) in which it is reported that Jose Contreras, late of his apparently unsuccessful workouts for the Softbank Hawks — is likely to end up with the Rockies, Diamondbacks or Dodgers.

The paper also reports that two AL Central teams are interested in his services. It doesn’t say who they are, but the Royals have been bottom feeding on pitching lately.  And you have to figure that, even though he was traded, Contreras didn’t burn any bridges with the White Sox. By all accounts he’s a nice guy and a good teammate.

And hey, if guys like Jeff Weaver and Livan Hernandez keeps finding major league work, why not Contreras?

    Okay, let’s see, in the past week we’ve had Contreras in Tokyo, Hanshin, Hiroshima and now….Kansas City or with the Rocky Mountain Oysters? Man, he gets around, doesn’t he? What did he do, buy himself a matter transporter or something? I just hope he checks the passenger chamber for flies before he hits the “send” button.
