After getting tuned up in extended spring training Carlos Zambrano has joined the Phillies’ high Single-A affiliate in Clearwater and will start for the Thrashers tonight.

Zambrano signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies two weeks ago and with Roy Halladay and John Lannan both on the disabled list he definitely has an opportunity to get back to the majors relatively quickly.

Zambrano is still just 31 years old, but he had a 4.49 ERA and terrible 95/75 K/BB ratio in 132 innings for the Marlins last season, including a 6.60 ERA and more walks (46) than strikeouts (39) in his final 59 innings.

    Gatorade water coolers everywhere are trembling right now…one bad outing and he’ll return to finish the job he started so many nights in Chicago. By the way, aren’t they the Threshers and not the Thrashers?

    Just keep a supply of thorozine on hand and make sure he’s medicated and things might work out for him.
