One rehab stint down for Caridad

One rehab stint down for Caridad

PITTSBURGH -- Esmailin Caridad began his rehab outing at Triple-A Iowa on Monday, and gave up one hit, walked one and struck out one in one inning against New Orleans.

Caridad is on the disabled list because of a strained right forearm that sidelined him on April 12. He rehabbed in Mesa, Ariz., at the Cubs' extended spring camp.

Caridad was expected to pitch Wednesday for Iowa, and the Cubs will make a decision then as to whether to activate the right-hander.
