Carlos Zambrano’s back must have responded well to his throwing session yesterday, as the Chicago Cubs have already scheduled a rehab outing for him tomorrow with the team’s A-ball affiliate in Peoria.

A little more info for those of you in the Peoria area who might want to get a look at Z:

Zambrano is expected to start for the Chiefs though a pitch count was not given, and the game will be followed by a Spectacular Fireworks Show. Tickets are available immediately at www.peoriachiefs.com or by calling 1-866-MYTICKET. The O’Brien Field Box Office will open at 10:00 a.m. on Friday for those wishing to purchase tickets in person. Due to the Major League rehab, the Never-A-Wasted ticket policy is suspended for Friday’s game.

Assuming the start goes well, Zambrano should be ready to come off the disabled list and start just after the All-Star break next week.

  • die hard

    gut telling me that he will go on 60 day after rehab try…another casualty of pitching coach who was not experienced enough to take on a major league pitching staff…like asking a stable boy to train a horse to compete in triple crown…long shot
