Zambrano joins RHP Alfredo Aceves, LHP Phil Coke, and RHP George Kontos as Trenton pitchers who have won the Bank of America Pitcher of the Week award this season.

Zambrano made a pair of starts for the Thunder last week and had a record of 2-0, with 11 strikeouts, and compiled a 0.75 ERA in 12.0 innings pitched. Zambrano, who is a native of Los Teques, Venezuela, made his first start of the week last Monday night at Reading.

The 33-year old also faced Reading in his second appearance of the week, and surrendered one run on three hits with one walk. He also recorded six strikeouts over seven innings to pick up the victory at Waterfront Park. Zambrano has a career record of 45-44 with a 4.64 ERA in 187 Major League appearances during parts of seven seasons with Tampa Bay, New York (NL), Toronto and Baltimore.

    What blows me away are the walks per 9 – Zambrano’s problem has always been control.

    I know he used to sit 92-95 with his FB – where’s the gun showing him now?

    You also wonder if he’ll be promoted to AAA and/or to the Bronx. With Rasner struggling, he could also end up in the majors pretty soon

    A nice Cadillac car service picked him up from the stadium on Sunday afternoon. Not sure where he was going. He had a small suitcase with him…no equipment bag though.

    Zambrano was pitching around 88-91 if I remember correctly. I think I have it somewhere in the game thread in which he pitched.
