5/3 Zambrano update
Carlos Zambrano could miss his next start after suffering a strained left hamstring Sunday. Zambrano was injured in the fifth after he hit a bunt single. He stretched with his left leg to reach first base, and came up limping. Big Z was to undergo an MRI Sunday night, and Lou Piniella said they’d know more on Monday. Asked about Zambrano’s next start, which would be Friday in Milwaukee, Piniella said it’s in doubt.
“I would say right now that’s in jeopardy, and if I had to guess, I’d say no,” Piniella said.
Expect the Cubs to call up a Minor Leaguer if needed.
