Chicago Cubs Roster Report 2009-05-18


Chicago Cubs Roster Report 2009-05-18
--LHP Sean Marshall had his turn in the rotation skipped over the weekend. He picked up a win in relief Saturday, and he'll start Thursday's series finale at St. Louis.

--RHP Jose Ascanio couldn't keep Sunday's game close, as he hit the first two batters he faced on two pitches in the seventh, when the Astros scored twice to take a 6-3 lead. Ascanio came up from the minor leagues last week and initially impressed manager Lou Piniella by throwing strikes. "I don't know what happened to Ascanio," Piniella said. "I just don't know. I don't know how ... I've never seen that, the first two pitches, two hit batters, and a wild pitch a few pitches later."

MEDICAL WATCH:

RHP Carlos Zambrano (strained left hamstring) went on the 15-day disabled list May 4. He will make a rehab start for Class A Daytona on May 17, and he could return to the Cubs on May 22.

RHP Chad Fox (right elbow inflammation) went on the 15-day disabled list May 10. He might miss the remainder of the season.

3B Aramis Ramirez (dislocated right shoulder) went on the 15-day disabled list May 9. He will miss approximately two months.
