The Chicago Cubs are shifting Carlos Zambrano to the bullpen

With Ted Lilly ready to come off the D.L. the Cubs are going to shift Carlos Zambrano from the rotation to the bullpen to serve as the Cubs’ new set-up man. The Cubs’ bullpen is in shambles right now outside of closer Carlos Marmol and lefty Sean Marshall so this move definitely makes sense. Zambrano, by agreeing to move to the pen, is proving to be more of a team player than most people thought he was. He has started 4 games this season and he is 1-2 with a 7.45 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP. Zambrano has 26 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings this season so his stuff is still there and he might benefit from the move which is supposedly going to be temporary.

    Zambrano has the stuff to be a nasty set up man for the Cubs. I don’t think he will be too happy if the Cubs leave him in the pen too long though.
