Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano may be working his way back into the starting rotation.
Chicago manager Lou Piniella said Zambrano would be "stretched out" so he can be switched from short to long relief.
"He [Lou Piniella] told me today there may be a chance I'll go back to the rotation," Zambrano said. "We'll see how everything works out in the next few days for me."
Since joining the bullpen on April 24, Zambrano has pitched in eight games and has a 6.23 ERA.
