In a need of a lift in the rotation, the Phillies are taking a chance on Carlos Zambrano.
Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay is expected to miss six to eight weeks because of a strained right shoulder, the latest major setback for the five-time NL East champions.
Proefrock said Zambrano was sincere in wanting to prove he keep his emotions in check _ and get batters out.
"No promises are made. It's just an opportunity to add some starting pitching," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said.
