CHICAGO—Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano will be placed on the restricted list, effective Tuesday, and will undergo evaluation for anger issues by doctors picked by Major League Baseball and the Players Association.
Zambrano has been suspended without pay since a dugout tantrum after the first inning of Friday’s Cubs game against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The pitcher came off the field after the White Sox had taken a 4-0 lead and accused his teammates of not making plays behind him. The right-hander served up a three-run homer to Carlos Quentin that inning.
On Wednesday, Zambrano will be evaluated in New York and the appropriate treatment will then be determined. Cubs general manager Jim Hendry didn’t specify what types of doctors would be involved in the initial evaluation.
