Pitchers & Catchers Report + Cholo Zambrano

Some news on the Cubs roster front from yesterday-the Cubs, with the help of "Cholo" Zambrano, have now filled out that final available spot on the 40 man roster. Zambrano, as you can see in the above video and displayed below in all its gloriousness, have added his sweet ass new dirtbag moustache to the club. Welcome to the roster Cholo 'Stache.

In some other Cubs news from Day 1 of spring, Z's eye surgery to correct an astigmatism has been pushed back due to an infection in the eye. He's trying to clear it up with eye drops and should decide in about 3 weeks if he'll go ahead with the surgery.

Rich Harden still hasn't denied the Sun-Times' report that he's trying to condition his way through a small tear in his shoulder. Per the Trib, the Cubs plan to limit Harden's action in ST to keep him healthy. We can expect to see his action limited all year, I'd say.

Carlos Marmol has gone ahead and thrown it out there-he wants the closer's job. I'm still undecided as to whether or not he'll better serve the club there, or in a setup role that will allow him to come into more game-deciding decisions earlier in games. Marmol is going to pitch for the Dominican in the World Baseball Classic.
