ATLANTA (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have placed pitcher Carlos
Zambrano on the disqualified list.
Zambrano cleaned out his locker and left the team after giving
up five homers and being ejected from Friday night's 10-4 loss to
the Braves. He did not return to the team Saturday.
General manager Jim Hendry said Saturday that Zambrano would
receive no pay for 30 days and would have no activity with the
Hendry says Zambrano's actions, including a brush-back pitch to
Chipper Jones that led to the ejection, are "intolerable."
Cubs manager Mike Quade said Friday night that Zambrano told
team personnel he might end his playing career.
