Cubs' Silva to start Tuesday in return from heart procedure wire reports

CHICAGO -- Carlos Silva is scheduled to start Tuesday for the Chicago Cubs against Houston after missing more than a month because of a heart problem.

He takes the spot of Tom Gorzelanny, who will miss at least one turn in the rotation after being hit in the left hand by a line drive against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Silva, 10-5 with a 3.92 ERA, has not pitched since Aug. 1. He underwent a surgical procedure called cardiac ablation to correct a problem with his heart rate.

Interim manager Mike Quade says Casey Coleman will start Monday unless he's pressed into relief work.
