5/27 Big Z hospitalized

Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano was hospitalized Thursday because of pain in his lower right side. Lou Piniella said Zambrano had “appendicitis-type symptoms” but the Cubs later reported that tests were negative and the problem was pain in his side. Zambrano reported the problem to the athletic trainers shortly before Thursday’s game started and he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital to be examined. There’s no word on his availability this weekend.
