Game 2 vs. White Sox
Prior to today’s game, Carlos Zambrano was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 19. The team announced yesterday that test results indicated a strain in his right shoulder. The injury is not considered serious, but post-game discussions led to the decision to hold him back from his next couple starts. He’ll be eligible to come off the DL during the early July series at St. Louis.
To replace him, the team recalled infielder/outfielder Eric Patterson. Normally, Patterson would not have been eligible to come back until June 27, 10 days after he was last sent to the minors. But in the case of injury, anybody may be recalled immediately.
