8/4 Zambrano to start Monday
Carlos Zambrano will be back in the Cubs rotation Monday night, making his first start since June 25 against the Giants. Zambrano was demoted to the bullpen after he was activated from the restricted list last Friday. He has made two appearances since then, his longest a 53-pitch outing on Sunday. Lou Piniella said he expected Zambrano to be able to go at least 75 pitches Monday. In nine starts this year, including Opening Day, Zambrano was 3-5 with a 6.12 ERA.
