Rehab Start a Success for Silva

By Chris Rewers on Saturday, August 28, 2010

Carlos Silva, in his first rehab start since going on the disabled list Aug. 1 with an abnormal heart rate, allowed two hits in 2 2/3 shutout innings Friday to help the host Peoria Chiefs claim a 3-1 Midwest League victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

Silva, who threw 51 pitches (32 for strikes), said he expects to throw a bullpen session Sunday and then make one more rehab appearance with the Class A Chiefs on Wednesday against the host Kane County Cougars in Geneva. He struck out one and walked none.

The 31-year-old right-hander, who was acquired in exchange for Milton Bradley in a trade last offseason with the Seattle Mariners, is 10-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 20 starts with the Cubs this season.

Silva began the season 8-0, but is just 1-2 with an 11.37 ERA in three starts since the All-Star break.
