Zambrano Leaves Game with "Shoulder Discomfort"

Yuh-yo. Carlos Zambrano was pulled from tonight's 5-4 L to the Rays in the 7th inning with what is being termed as "right shoulder discomfort." Z had made it through 6 and 2/3 innings and had thrown 100 pitches. Doesn't seem to be much word as yet on the extent of the problems, or if any truly exist. I'll imagine the team will further examine Z tomorrow and we should know more in the next day or two. Stay tuned. (Actually-just heard on Sportscenter that Z is leaving the team to fly back to Chi-Town to have his shoulder examined. And BBTN says Z will definitely be getting an MRI on Thursday. Precautionary or is it time to worry here?)

In other news from tonight's game...
  • Jim Edmonds also left early with left foot soreness being blamed on the number of artificial turf games the Cubs have had of late.
  • With Reed Johnson banged up, Sweet Lou started Fukudome in the leadoff spot tonight and says he's the leadoff man until Soriano returns from the DL, at least. Well...that was quick. Too much roster tinkering lately, Lou.
