Chicago Cubs to skip Rich Harden's turn

Sep 17, 2009 - 6:36 PM CHICAGO(AP) -- The Cubs' Rich Harden will be replaced in the rotation for at least one start

Manager Lou Piniella said Tom Gorzelanny will start in Harden's place Monday when the Cubs play at Milwaukee. He said Gorzelanny may also start on Sept. 26 at San Francisco in place of Harden, who has struggled with high pitch counts and failed to make it past the fifth inning in his last four starts.

Eligible for free agency after the World Series, Harden lasted three innings Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers. He is 9-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 26 starts.
