8/4 Silva still being tested
Carlos Silva was able to play catch Wednesday but is still undergoing tests to determine what caused the abnormal heart rate that forced him out of his last start.
Silva was pulled Sunday after facing four batters in Colorado, spent the night at a Denver hospital, and flew back to Chicago Monday. He was being examined by cardiologist Mark Upton.
Silva was placed on the disabled list Monday to give him time to get treatmeent. But during his throw session Wednesday, he showed he hasn’t lost his stuff.
“He throws a pretty good sinker,” said Carlos Zambrano, who played catch with Silva under the watchful eye of athletic trainer Mark O’Neal. “I thought I had a good sinker but I think he’s close or similar to my sinker.”
