Cubs manager Dusty Baker said, "We'll see -- we're in the producing business, and Theriot has done well."
There is a chance that Theriot and Cedeno will get some playing time in the final weeks of the season. While the Cubs like Cedeno for their future, he might need a little time off because he has not been hitting well the past couple of months.
REPLAY: The Cubs will be trying to avoid their second season sweep of the year when they face Atlanta on Monday.
The Cubs already lost an entire season series against San Diego and are 0-6 against the Braves this year with one game to go after Sunday's 2-1 defeat. Rookie Juan Mateo gave up just two runs in seven innings, but it was not enough as the offense continued to sputter.
BY THE NUMBERS: 100 -- Stolen bases the Cubs had racked up when Derrek Lee swiped second in the seventh inning on Sept. 5. It's the first time the Cubs have had 100 or more steals since 1997.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "What people don't know is one of my legs (the right) is longer than the other. All Zambranos have that. My dad has that. That's one of my problems, too." -- Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano, on what might be causing his back pain throughout the past three seasons.
LHP Ryan O'Malley (strained left elbow) went on the disabled list Aug. 23 and was activated on Sept. 8.
RHP Carlos Zambrano (back pain) left the game Sept. 4 in the second inning. He had an MRI exam on Sept. 5, and he is day-to-day.
C Michael Barrett (intrascrotal hematoma) went on the disabled list Sept. 3, a day after he was hit in the groin by a foul tip and underwent surgery. He's likely out for the season.
SS Cesar Izturis (right hamstring) went on the disabled list Aug. 22. He is expected to be activated Sept. 11 or Sept. 12.
RHP Mark Prior (right shoulder tendinitis) went on the disabled list retroactive to Aug. 11.
RHP Kerry Wood (shoulder and knee surgery) went on the disabled list retroactive to June 7. His season ended July 7 when an MRI showed a partial tear in his rotator cuff. He has opted not to have surgery, and he hopes to be ready for spring training.
