Multiple media reports out of Des Moines say that Carlos Zambrano will pitch at least one game for the Iowa Cubs this week.

Des Moines Register:

Carlos Zambrano will start his minor league rehab in Des Moines, Iowa Cubs officials said Saturday.

He is expected to be with the team during Tuesday’s doubleheader against Oklahoma City that starts at 5 p.m. at Principal Park. Whether he pitches Tuesday, or during Wednesday’s 7 p.m. game, also at Principal Park, is uncertain.


Iowa Cubs team sources say they are expecting Carlos Zambrano to pitch for the I-Cubs this week. He’ll take the mound at Principal Park against Oklahoma City on either Tuesdays or Wednesday.

There is no confirmation of this from either the Iowa Cubs or Chicago Cubs officially — yet.
