With Carlos Zambrano on the restricted list and John Grabow having left last night’s game with a recurrence of his knee injury, the Cubs will need two roster replacements today. Bruce Levine fills us in:
Right-handed pitcher Jeff Stevens and left-handed pitcher James Russell will be recalled from Triple-A Iowa prior to Tuesday’s game against the Pirates. Stevens replaces Carlos Zambrano on the roster and Russell replaces John Grabow, who reinjured his left knee in the seventh inning of Monday’s 2-1 loss to the Pirates.
Grabow will see an orthopedic specialist on Tuesday to determine what type of damage was done on Monday night. The Cubs put Grabow on the disabled list immediately after the game.
