PEORIA, Ariz. -- The Cubs' pitching is falling into place, with Sean Marshall being named the fifth starter on Thursday and Aaron Heilman moving into the bullpen.


Cubs manager Lou Piniella made the announcement after a 9-2 win Thursday over the Seattle Mariners. Piniella wanted to talk to Heilman, who started the game, before he made it official.




Good. I like it just because I wanted Heilman in the pen. If he pitches like he did from 05-07 then the pen should be better than last year's, despite losing Wood. So at least we've seemingly upgraded in one area this offseason.
