5/24 Zambrano sim game

Carlos Zambrano threw 73 pitches Monday in a simulated game at Wrigley Field, his first extended outing since switching to the bullpen on April 22. Zambrano is being stretched out so he can return to the rotation. Lou Piniella said Sunday that Big Z’s first start would be on the road. That means he’ll miss the upcoming series against the Dodgers and Cardinals. The Cubs begin a nine-game trip on May 31 in Pittsburgh.

No stats are kept during a sim game except the pitch count. Jeff Baker and Tyler Colvin faced Zambrano in the workout.
