9/7 Injury updates
Third baseman Aramis Ramirez did not start for the second straight game because of a sore right quad. He continued to get treatment and was not available to pinch-hit. His status was day to day. The Cubs called up infielder Bobby Scales from Triple-A Iowa as insurance.
Pitcher Tom Gorzelanny threw on the side but has not been penciled into the rotation yet. With the return of Carlos Silva from the disabled list and Jeff Samardzija joining the team from Triple-A Iowa, the Cubs may tinker with their rotation. Right now, Carlos Zambrano and Ryan Dempster are scheduled to pitch Friday and Saturday in Milwaukee. Casey Coleman is slated for Sunday but that may change.
