Lou Piniella: Tom Gorzelanny to bullpen, Carlos Zambrano to start Wednesday

Cubs manager Lou Piniella today announced that Carlos Zambrano will return to the starting rotation Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Tom Gorzelanny will move to the bullpen to make room for Zambrano, whose last start came April 20.

“We talked to Gorzelanny about the fact that he’s going to the bullpen,” Piniella said. “We didn’t expect him to be happy about it and he wasn’t, but at the same time, we impressed on him that he could be very helpful to us.”
