Cubs Hoping to Avoid DL for Wood

Will he or won't he is the question of the day for Kerry Wood. It was announced last week that he had been suffering from a blister on this throwing hand for more than a couple weeks but was pitching anyway. It got so bad that he had to stop pitching but even with a week's rest, it has not improved enough for the Cubs to feel his return is imminent. The Chicago papers are reporting that his placement on the DL could come as early as tonight. This happens just as Soriano begins his rehab assignment in Mesa.

UPDATE: New treatment of the blister may keep Wood off the DL after all. We'll know more in the next day or two.
