Silva to rejoin Cubs shortly after rehab start

|
WASHINGTON -- Right-hander Carlos Silva will make a Minor League rehabilitation start for Class A Peoria on Friday and is expected to pitch three of four innings or 45 pitches. Barring any problems in that outing, Silva will rejoin the Cubs soon after.

"We'd like to see [Silva] throw well and get him back," interim manager Mike Quade said. "The more options the better [as] we're approaching September."

Silva, who is 10-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 20 starts, has been on the 15-day disabled list since Aug. 2 for a cardiac evaluation. He underwent a cardiac ablation, an outpatient procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, on Aug. 9.

"He says he feels great after that [procedure]," Quade said. "You know, technology's amazing. Rebuilding a guy's arm and rebuilding a guy's heart. Unbelievable."
