The second NL Central Ace landed on the DL because of an injury sustained while batting. If you recall, Chris Carpenter injured his rib cage swinging a bat. This time it was Carlos Zambrano, who strained his hamstring trying to beat out a bunt.
Zambrano is expected to miss two or three weeks. He was 3-1 with 33 Ks, a 4.50 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Randy Wells, who is 3-0 with 19 Ks, a 3.13 ERA, and 1.09 WHIP in 23 Innings for Triple-A Iowa, will get the call while Big Z recovers.
