Dempster to DL with broken toe

How about this? The Cubs just announced they’ve put pitcher Ryan Dempster on the DL with a “great right toe fracture.” That’s not so great. Demp was supposed to start tonight, but Big Z will replace him. The Cubs have recalled Kevin Hart from Iowa to start tomorrow’s series finale with the Braves. Dempster is 5-5 with a 4.09 ERA in 17 starts. Hart was 0-0 with a 1.59 ERA in 4 relief appearances with the Cubs this year. He had spent part of this year as a starter at Iowa, going 3-3 with a 3.10 ERA. Zambrano is going on short rest, as he pitched last Friday against the Brewers, going 7 innings and getting a no-decision in the Cubs' 2-1, 10-inning victory. Of course, much more later.
