    Carlos Zambrano to the DL

    The Cubs placed Carlos Zambrano on the 15-day disabled list Friday with lower back soreness, a move he didn't try to fight.

    Zambrano said he'd been "feeling weird" the last two or three starts, but Thursday's one-inning outing was the worst, and he aggravated it on a play at first base.





    "Any time I go to the DL, believe me, it makes me angry," he said. "But I know the Cubs do it for a reason— to protect me."

    General manager Jim Hendry said that to "rush him out there for one more (start), to me, made no sense. He certainly wanted to pitch one more time."

    Triple-A Iowa starter Ramon Ortiz will take Zambrano's spot in the rotation next Tuesday. Zambrano will return the weekend after the All-Star break, missing two starts.

    He'd pitched well. It's about right this year.

    It's been so hard to watch the Cubs, when 40-60% of our rotation as been on the DL almost the whole year.
