11/23 Zambrano update
Carlos Zambrano, who needed 10 stitches to fix a cut after he was hit in the face by a line drive, was not expected to pitch until next week so he has time to heal. According to a report out of Venezuela, Zambrano was to see a doctor on Friday and might be available to start for Caribes next Tuesday. His status is day to day. The Cubs pitcher had his best outing in Venezuela last Friday, giving up one unearned run on two hits and two walks over five innings for Caribes, but had to leave the game after he was hit by Ezequiel Carrera’s liner.
