Piniella shuffles rotation
Cubs manager Lou Piniella has altered his rotation for next week.
Due to the fact that the team has an off-day Monday, RHP Ryan Dempster will go Tuesday, LHP Ted Lilly on Wednesday, RHP Randy Wells on Thursday, LHP Tom Gorzelanny on Friday and RHP Carlos Silva on Saturday.
Before Silva’s start on Saturday, Piniella decided to flip-flop Silva and Gorzelanny next week. Piniella said that Silva’s right wrist had been bothering him, and he will have seven days between starts.
With the addition of Caridad, the team will have to make a roster move. For now there is no plan to move Carlos Zambrano back to the rotation. One of the young pitchers, either James Russell, Jeff Gray or Justin Berg will go to the minors when Caridad returns.
