Zambrano's Rehab Start

Carlos Zambrano pitch for the Daytona Cubs today against the Blue Jays minor league team, Dunedin Blue Jays .

Zambrano pitch three and two-thirds innings and gave up 5 hits, 4 earn runs, 3 walks and 1 strikeout with a fastball that top out at 94 mph. Zambrano threw 67 pitches and 42 for strikes.

The coaching staff said that Zambrano was having a hard time to fine his release point.

Zambrano will have another bullpen session next week before he takes the mound Friday, May 22nd at San Diego Padres at 9:05pm.

The good thing that came out of Zambrano's rehab start was he was feeling no pain in his leg when landing and his velocity was good. The bad was, Zambrano only pitching three and two thirds and giving up 5 hits and 4 earn runs, Zambrano also only struck out 1 batter to minor leaguers.

Lets just hope his outing stays in the minors and hope he pitches like he did when he threw the no hitter last year against the Astros.
