A Stiff Shoulder for Zambrano?

According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times Wednesday morning, Carlos Zambranohas had stiffness in the right shoulder/neck area since his start Saturday against the Pirates.

The Cubs are keeping a close watch on Zambrano this week and he is still on schedule to make his next start on Friday in Pittsburgh against the Pirates.

The report indicated Zambrano has “minor discomfort when he turns his head to the left” and he threw his normal bullpen session on Tuesday. According to a report in the Tribune, Zambrano said he slept on it wrong.

This appears minor….but stay tuned.
