Zam­brano may re­join Cubs by end of month

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO — Car­los Zam­brano could re­join the Chicago Cubs by the end of the month. Man­ager Lou Piniella says the righthander will likely pitch a sim­u­lated game to­day at the team’s train­ing com­plex in Ari­zona, with his next stop at Triple-A Iowa.

Zam­brano re­ported to Ari­zona last week af­ter com­plet­ing anger man­age­ment ses­sions fol­low­ing his dugout con­fronta­tion with Der­rek Lee in a game against the White Sox on June 25. The team sus­pended him with­out pay for three games, then placed him on the re­stricted list on June 29.

He is ex­pected to pitch out of the bullpen when he re­turns. Zam­brano is 3-6 with a 5.66 ERA in 22 games this sea­son.
