MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNMingling with Cubs players and staff on the field at Marlins Park before the teams’ game Monday, Zambrano hesitated at first, then showed an email from the independent Chicago Dogs, based in suburban Rosemont, Illinois, welcoming him to the 2019 team.Carlos Zambrano says he had “an encounter with God” that brought him back to baseball. https://t.co/7fyx3FigAz— Chicago Sun-Times (@Suntimes) April 16, 2019A year after what the Sun-Times described as a halfhearted comeback attempt in Mexico, he promised this, citing “an encounter with God”: He is serious about his attempt to return to the majors as a reliever.”Now I want to play,’’ he said. “Now I want to see what happens.”So, too, might Cubs fans.Recall that Zambrano, who arguably had the best pure stuff in a rotation that included Mark Prior and Kerry Wood, got in a fistfight in the dugout with catcher Michael Barrett in 2007, was suspended six games in 2009 after a heated argument with an umpire (and destroying a Gatorade dispenser) and in 2011 gave up five homers in a start in August, was ejected and cleaned out his locker in Atlanta and left Turner Field, reportedly telling teammates he was retiring.He never pitched for the Cubs again. They suspended him after the meltdown in Atlanta and new club president Theo Epstein traded him to the Marlins. Former Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano is plotting a comeback.Zambrano, a talented but mercurial right-hander with commanding stuff a decade ago, told the Chicago Sun-Times: ‘‘Why not? Bartolo [Colon] pitched until he was 45. I’m 37.” But, the Sun-Times noted, as often as old friends found him on the field Monday in Miami for hugs and jokes about whether he could pitch Monday, Zambrano “had an air of seriousness behind his smiles while he watched the Cubs take batting practice.”Last year in the Mexican League, his fastball touched 89 mph, tops in the league according to the story, and he said he hit 94 during winter ball in his native Venezuela.‘‘I want to see if I can throw 95 again,” he said.
