SEATTLE (AP) -- Cubs right-hander Carlos Silva will get a couple extra days to rest his ailing right hamstring, taking him out of the series in Seattle against his former team.
Silva was scheduled to pitch Thursday but manager Lou Piniella says he now will go Saturday at the White Sox. Silva tweaked his hamstring during his last start Friday against the Angels.
Chicago traded mercurial slugger Milton Bradley to Seattle in December for Silva, who won five games in two years with the Mariners but is 8-2 with a 3.01 ERA so far for the Cubs.
Piniella says Ted Lilly will start Thursday's game.
Also for the Cubs, third baseman Aramis Ramirez will not come off the disabled list Wednesday. Piniella says the team is now planning to activate him on Friday.
