The Arizona Diamondbacks keep looking to improve their pitching staff this offseason as Jayson Stark reports that the D-backs are interested in free agent starter Batrolo Colon

Per Jayson Stark on Twitter:

The 38 year-old right-hander earned himself a 4.00 ERA along with a 7.4 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 for the New York Yankees last season in 164 1/3 innings of work. Colon signed a minor league contract with the Yanks last winter and was productive as their 5th starter in 2011, though seemed to slow down as the season went on a bit.

Colon didn't pitch in 2010 due to injury, and has already had some questionable stem cells treatments to his elbow and rotator cuff. But for the right price, Colon could prove to be a nice pickup for Arizona.
