Kerry Wood Status Quo

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IMarch 22, 2010

Kerry Wood’s spent 12 seasons in the bigs. He’s also made 12 trips to the DL, and a 13th is in the making.

Prognosis: a strained muscle below his lower right shoulder–out 6-8 weeks.

The Indians had to know this was coming. But they still forked over $20.5M for two-years. Foolish.

Last season the 32-year-old went 3-3, 4.25 ERA, and 20-of-26 in save chances. Decent, but clearly not worth the money.

If Wood recovers my guess is the Tribe eats some of the contract and deals him by the end of July. Somebody will take him, I just hope the Cubs are not that desperate.
