Cubs Place Ryan Dempster On DL

Well, this is a surprise. "Great right toe fracture?" Hmmm. Carlos Zambrano will start tonight instead. From the press release:

The Chicago Cubs today placed right-handed pitcher Ryan Dempster on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 3) with a great right toe fracture. To replace Dempster on the roster, the Cubs recalled right-handed pitcher Kevin Hart from Triple-A Iowa.

Carlos Zambrano, who was scheduled to start tomorrow, will instead make the start tonight against the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field. Hart is scheduled to start the series finale for the Cubs tomorrow afternoon.
