9/8 Cubs rotation vs Brewers – UPDATED

Tom Gorzelanny, sidelined with a hairline fracture under the nail of his left pinkie finger, will throw a bullpen session this weekend. Gorzelanny (7-8, 3.90 ERA) was hit on the hand by a line drive by Pittsburgh’s Jose Tabata in the third inning Sept. 1. The lefty has been able to play catch.

“It’s still sore from bruising,” Gorzelanny said Wednesday. “When I’m throwing or holding [the ball] it doesn’t feel bad.”

The Cubs will keep the starting rotation in line for the weekend series against Milwaukee, which opens Friday. Carlos Zambrano (7-6, 4.23 ERA) will start Friday, followed by Ryan Dempster (12-10, 3.76 ERA) and rookie Casey Coleman (1-1 , 5.81 ERA).
