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.
My guess, given Wood makes a full recovery, is the Tribe eats some of the contract and deals Kerry by the end of July. Somebody will take him, I just hope the Cubs are not that desperate.
