|Cubs Await League Feedback on Zambrano
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs were awaiting feedback from Major League Baseball to determine the length of Carlos Zambrano's suspension for his wild outburst on Friday.
The Cubs filed a report on the incident, and general manager Jim Hendry says he hopes to get a response "in the next day or so" after the league and players union look into it.
Zambrano unleashed a tirade against his teammates and had to be separated from Derrek Lee in the dugout after allowing four runs in the first inning of a 6-0 loss to the White Sox. He got sent home by manager Lou Piniella, was suspended indefinitely by the team and won't have a spot in the rotation when he comes back.
Hendry, speaking before Sunday's game, says he's been in contact with Zambrano's agent Barry Praver but not the pitcher. Nor has manager Lou Piniella.
