4/25 Zambrano to go every other day
Don’t expect to see Carlos Zambrano come out of the bullpen on Sunday. Lou Piniella said he wants to give the right-hander three or four appearances before he uses him back to back in his new job as set-up pitcher. Big Z could be back in action Monday night when the Cubs play host to the Nationals at Wrigley Field.
Zambrano was sharp in his debut Saturday night, giving up one run in 1 1/3 innings of relief.
“I’ve said I’m appreciative that he’s doing this for us,” Piniella said. “It’s best for our baseball team. As long as he goes out there and gives us the best effort, that’s all we can expect.”
