.
Altho it is doubtful either will ever make an impact.
.
I bet, if they hadn’t given Lakind 400k, he woulda been cut, too.

Colla had some major league potential as Tim pointed out, but it certainly looked like that would be as a middle reliever at best. They seem to have a lot of AAA pitching right now though, so Colla may have been back in Altoona.
I guess the other thing to notice is the fact they got rid of four lefties all at once, though the LaKind conversion cuts that to three.
