Report: Francis decision within days

Jeff Francis

Starting Pitcher
Colorado Rockies


Free agent left-hander Jeff Francis' decision to re-sign with the Colorado Rockies or head elsewhere could be made within days, writes Jim Armstrong in the Denver Post. The report lists the Mets, Brewers, Pirates and Nationals as other suitors for Francis.

After undergoing February 2009 shoulder surgery and missing that entire season, Francis returned May 16 and made 20 appearances (19 starts) the remainder of 2010.

A Mets insider told ESPNNewYork.com on Friday that the team was more likely to sign a free agent than complete a trade to add a starting pitcher.
