Carolos Zambrano update

Back is much better news than arm/elbow

CHICAGO -- Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano had to leave Monday's game after 1 1/3 innings because of stiffness in his lower back.
It was the shortest outing of Zambrano's career. His previous top abbreviated stint was June 22, 2005, against Milwaukee, when he lasted 1 2/3 innings.

Zambrano struggled to throw strikes from the start and needed 31 pitches to get through the first inning. The Pirates loaded the bases on two straight walks and an infield hit by Freddy Sanchez. Jason Bay hit an RBI single and Xavier Nady cleared the bases with a double into the gap in right-center to make it 4-0.

The Cubs starter, who leads the National League in walks and ranks among the leaders in several other categories, walked the first batter in the second and gave up a single. Two batters later, Cubs athletic trainer Mark O'Neal went to the mound, and Zambrano was pulled.

The Cubs starter gave up five runs, four earned, on four hits and four walks over 1 1/3 innings while striking out one, throwing 43 pitches (23 strikes). Zambrano leads the National League in pitches thrown this season, totaling 3,282, including Monday's game. He was averaging 112 pitches per start.

From Rotoworld: Sep. 5 - 9:29 am et
Carlos Zambrano (lower-back) was told by a team physician that his season could be over.

"I feel like my back was locked," Zambrano said. "The doctor talked to me [about] what can happen, 'If we want to stop you for this year.' I don't know. That's their decision." Zambrano will have an MRI on Tuesday and will attempt to test his back with a side session at some point this week.

From Rotoworld:Sep. 5 - 7:53 pm et

An MRI exam of Carlos Zambrano's back Tuesday revealed no significant damage.

"There is some muscular skeletal spasms that are protecting what you would call early signs of degeneration in his lower back, which athletes are prone to get," trainer Mark O'Neal said. Zambrano, who made the choice to pitch Monday even though he was sore going in, indicated that he was in no rush to return. "I want to pitch, but I can't risk my career for this," he said.
