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.
