12/11 Winter league update
Bryan LaHair drew two walks and singled in Magallanes’ 4-2 win over Lara Saturday in Venezuelan Winter League play. On Friday, Cubs prospect Austin Bibens-Dirkx gave up three hits over seven innings but did not get a decision in Caracas’ 3-0 win over Zulia. Bibens-Dirkx struck out one and walked two for Zulia.
* Carlos Zambrano was expected to return to the mound this week in Venezuela and could start on Wednesday. Zambrano has been sidelined after taking a line drive off his face on Nov. 18 while pitching for Caribes.
