JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Carlos Zambrano says his spring training is off to a good start as he tries to come back from the worst year of his career.
The three-time All-Star's first throwing session Wednesday included plenty of strikes and one brushback pitch -- to Ozzie Guillen. The Miami Marlins' manager was leaning on a bat near home plate, watching Zambrano work, when a fastball came whizzing his way.
Guillen let out a yelp and dodged the pitch with a frantic skip.
Zambrano wore out his welcome with the Chicago Cubs because of a combative personality, so there are likely more brushbacks to come. He had a series of run-ins with teammates, management and umpires before his 11-year career with the Cubs ended last August.
