3/26 Silva, Gorzelanny to start
Lou Piniella made his picks and Carlos Silva and Tom Gorzelanny will be in the rotation at the start of the season while Jeff Samardzija and Sean Marshall go to the bullpen. The team also sent seven players to the Minor League camp, and it appears that lefty James Russell has made the big league team. The Cubs sent Jeff Gray, Marcos Mateo and John Gaub to the Minors.
