Cubs' Wood to miss at least one-start


Recommended Posts

Kerry Wood will miss at least one

start after getting a cortisone shot Thursday in his aching

right shoulder, which has forced him onto the disabled list

once already this season.


Wood lasted only three innings in the Chicago Cubs' 9-3

loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night, giving up

three solo homers. His shoulder was stiff and his fastball



Wood was examined Thursday by Dr. Tim Kremchek, who

consulted with a Cubs' doctor before giving the injection.

Wood will rest the shoulder for a couple of days before

seeing whether the cortisone gets rid of the inflammation and

pain and allows him to keep pitching.


??It's frustrating, especially with the amount of time

I've missed,'' said Wood, who was on the disabled list from

May 3 to June 29 with a sore shoulder. ??So we got the shot,

went with a little more aggressive treatment this time. We'll

see if that will take care of it.''
