5/25 Rotation this week
The Cubs rotation for the rest of the week will be Tom Gorzelanny on Wednesday, followed by Ted Lilly Thursday, and Randy Wells, Carlos Silva and Ryan Dempster against the Cardinals Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
Wednesday will be Gorzelanny’s first start since he was struck on the ring finger of his left hand May 20 in Philadlephia. He had returned to Chicago after that game to be examined and to be with his wife Lindsey for the birth of their first child on Friday.
“It was good timing to be able to go home,” Gorzelanny said Tuesday. “It was nice to be able to help my wife out and get her back home and give her a hand.”
On Monday, the lefty threw a side session at Wrigley and passed all the tests.
