Eyre out with elbow tightness.

Thanks to

Reliever Scott Eyre was sidelined Sunday with tightness in his left elbow, which could create an opening in the Cubs' bullpen for one of the other left-handers in camp.

Sean Marshall was scheduled to start Thursday against the Brewers, but he has been scratched from that game so he can work out of the 'pen this week. Other candidates include Carmen Pignatiello, who has given up two hits over 6 1/3 scoreless innings, and Les Walrond, who has pitched six innings in relief.

I think Pignatiello should get the spot since he has not surrendered a run in 6 1/3 innings. I also am not opposed to Marshall but I think he should be in AAA starting.
