Cubs Talking with Zambrano’s Agent?

According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, Jim Hendry is in talks with Carlos Zambrano’s agent, Barry Praver, in the attempt to figure “out what Zambrano was actually thinking after walking out of the clubhouse Friday night and telling Cubs personnel he plans to retire.” Tribune sources indicated “the two sides have been in discussions and Zambrano has not filed any retirement papers.”

According to the Tribune, “if nothing is resolved by this afternoon, the Cubs are likely to place Zambrano on the restricted list indefinitely.”

Carlos Zambrano was placed on the restricted list last season after his blowup at the Cell in June.

The Tribune mentioned if Carlos Zambrano is put on the restricted list that could open a spot in the rotation for Casey Coleman.
