Soto Rehab Start, Cubs could put Zambrano in Bullpen for Reds Series.

Goevany Soto catch and batted third for Doble A Tennessee Smokies.

First at-bat: Singled on a line drive to left field, also he drove in a run.

Second at-bat: Geovany Soto called out on strikes.

Third at-bat: Soto walks.

I will keep you posted if he rehabs tomorrow.

Lou Pinella said he might put Zambrano in the bullpen for the next couple of days until his start against the Rockies on Friday.

Manager Lou Piniella raised that possibility for the second consecutive night after another rough finish for a bullpen that has been worked hard lately - in large part because of Zambrano’s early exit Saturday because of lower- back stiffness.

”He’s got till Friday,” Piniella said of Zambrano’s anticipated fitness for his next scheduled start, ”unless we put him in the bullpen for a couple of days. We might need him there in Cincinnati.”

Said Zambrano, when told of Piniella’s comments: ”I’m not a reliever.” Chicago Sun-Times

I would imagine Pinella won't do this but it may not hurt if he goes to the bullpen for the first 2 games of the Reds series.

I will keep you posted and I will have Geovany Soto's rehab start for Tennessee Smokies later today or tomorrow.
