4/23 Big Z's first day at new job

Carlos Zambrano and closer Carlos Marmol headed out to the visitor’s bullpen at Miller Park after the third inning was completed on Friday. It’s the first step in Big Z’s transition from starting pitcher to reliever. Zambrano stopped to talk to third base umpire Wally Bell before walking across the outfield with Marmol. Lou Piniella said he didn’t expect to call on Zambrano Friday but wait until Saturday to give the right-hander a chance to “get acclimated.” Zambrano has not pitched in relief since 2002.
