8/25 Silva to Peoria Friday
Cubs pitcher Carlos Silva will make a rehab start Friday for the Class A Peoria Chiefs against Cedar Rapids. Silva, 31, has been on the disabled list because of an abnormal heart rate. He underwent a procedure Aug. 9, and threw a simulated game last Sunday in Chicago. Silva is the third Cubs player to rehab in Peoria this year. Aramis Ramirez and Ted Lilly also made appearances for the Class A team.
