Carlos Zambrano took another big step toward returning from his team-issued suspension on Saturday night with two scoreless innings of relief for Triple-A Iowa. This according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.
Big Z used 29 pitches. He allowed only one hit and struck out three while also notching his first minor-league hold. Zambrano will make one more rehab appearance — maybe two — before rejoining the Cubs next weekend. He will work as a reliever once he is cleared to return to the big leagues.
Zambrano has not spoken to the media since his June 25 dugout tirade and is not expected to do so before he returns to the majors. That’s probably for the best.
