Zambrano Won’t Pitch for Cubs This Season
The Chicago Cubs have announced that suspended right-hander Carlos Zambrano is done for the season.
The Cubs said they would resume paying the troubled pitcher when his suspension ends on September 11, but there would not be time for him to get prepared to pitch again.
Zambrano was suspended for 30 days without pay by former general manager Jim Hendry after Zambrano was ejected for throwing at Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones. After his ejection he cleaned out his locker and said he was retiring.
The Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance over the suspension. That is not expected to be settled before the end of the season.
