Following yesterday's report that the Chicago Cubs have offered Kerry Wood a "substantial raise" comes word from Jon Paul Morosi via twitter that they're close to a one-year deal which includes a 2013 option.

He earned $1.5 million in 2011 and if Jed Hoyer's comments are true would stand to make a bit more. Jon Heyman echoes yesterday's rumors that Philly would still pursue him, just in case:

  • Wood close to deal? " Muskat Ramblings
    "He did miss time because of a blister and ended his season in September because of a torn meniscus in his left knee. The right-hander gave the Cubs a hometown discount in 2011, signing a one-year, $1.5 million deal to come back."
