Cubs' Silva on DL for Cardiac Evaluation
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs placed Carlos Silva on the disabled list for a cardiac evaluation, one day after he left in the first inning of a start against the Colorado Rockies with an abnormal heart rate.

Silva was back in Chicago on Monday after spending the night in a Denver hospital. There is no timetable for his return as he undergoes tests.

A trainer went to the mound after Silva walked the second batter he faced Sunday. Silva stayed in and allowed a single to Carlos Gonzalez and a ground-rule double to Troy Tulowitzki.

Interim manager Allan Trammell and the trainer went back to the mound, and Silva was replaced.
