UPDATE: Carlos Silva released from hospital, but put on DL

Aug 2, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

UPDATE: Silva has been placed on the disabled list.
Carlos Silva was released from a Colorado hospital this morning after leaving yesterday’s start at Coors Field in the first inning with an abnormal heart rate.
According to the Cubs he’ll be examined further by a cardiologist after returning to Chicago and may avoid the disabled list because Thursday’s off day allows them to simply skip his next turn in the rotation.
Ultimately the time off may do Silva some good. Since beginning the season 9-2 with a 2.96 ERA to shock everyone after a brutal two-year stint in Seattle he’s 1-3 with a 16.43 ERA in his last four starts, allowing 14 runs on 21 hits and seven walks in 7.2 innings.

    I was at that game Sunday afternoon, I could tell there was something wrong with his set up and delivery and in between pitch times. I just thought the Rockos had got into his head early, and just threw him off kilter.
    I am glad to hear he is feeling better and on his way back to Chicago.
    GO CUBS!, next season is our season!

    “Wait ’til next year” . . . I’ve never heard that one from a Cubs fan!

    They’d have no reason to exist otherwise.
