Wood progresses, but may need rehab stint
CHICAGO -- Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood, on the disabled list with right shoulder fatigue, was expected to start throwing off the mound soon.

"He feels a lot better," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Monday of Wood, who was placed on the disabled list Friday, retroactive to April 14. "We'll get him off the mound here pretty quick and see how that goes. He's making a lot of improvement and says he feels great."

Wood, who last pitched April 13, received a cortisone shot in his shoulder on Wednesday. He may need some game action in the Minor Leagues, Sveum said.

"There's a chance we might," Sveum said about a rehab assignment. "It only helps us and helps him, too. It's different when you get out on that mound. We don't want to activate somebody and then we're right back to where we were."
