3/12 Silva making progress

The Cubs saw progress in Carlos Silva’s outing. The right-hander threw three scoreless innings on Thursday against the Padres and gave up four hits and one walk.

“The first two innings, he threw across his body, which Larry [Rothschild] has been working on,” Lou Piniella said. “The last inning, he went away from it a little bit and old habits took over. He was better, no question.

“One thing about this guy here, he’s here to do a good job,” Piniella said. “He’s working hard, he’s serious minded about what he’s doing, he wants to improve and wants to help the team. Everything is positive.”
