Lukewarm Stove: Kerry Wood Still on Cubs’ Radar

Chicago Cubs Rumors

You didn’t forget about Kerry Wood already, did you? The Chicago Cubs certainly didn’t.


Cubs icon Kerry Wood will be looked at as a possible addition. Wood will have to accept a setup role — he was Cleveland’s closer for the better part of two seasons before getting traded to the Yankees in July. Wood and the Cubs would seem to be a good matchup. However, money constraints might hurt the team’s ability to bring back a reliever of Wood’s caliber. ESPN Chicago.

The Cubs will almost certainly look to “hometown” Wood, and ask him to take a lower salary to pitch for the Cubs. The team could certainly use a veteran, reliable late-inning reliever, so let’s hope Wood’s heartstrings are easily tugged.
