Carlos Zambrano's exile will come to an end on Friday.
Zambrano, who's been on the restricted list since a dugout blowup in late June on the South Side, will finally have a chance to apologize to the team -- in person -- when the Cubs open a three-game series in Denver.
"We're looking forward to the apology. I think that's what needs to happen, said Derrek Lee. "We also need him on the field. We know what he's capable of. It'll be good to see the Big Z back."
