Rich Harden and the Cubs have decided to shutdown the right-hander for the remainder of the year. He finishes 9-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 26 starts.

"It was a mutual decision," said Harden, who talked to Cubs GM Jim Hendry Thursday. "I'm still healthy, I feel good and I take that as a positive for the season."

There's nothing wrong, except a little fatigue because Harden has thrown a lot of pitches over a few innings. The move is precautionary, and he said if the Cubs were still in the race, Harden would pitch.

"I don't feel like I have anything to prove right now," he said.

He will be a free agent after this season.

"We'll see what happens," Harden said. "I really enjoyed my time pitching in Chicago. It's a good city, good fans, good team. It would be nice to come back and make a run for it."
