He will go on DL then come back after a rehab assignment. Reports say he will be working in the Cubs' bullpen to reduce stress on his arm. If he doesn't perform well, he might need offseason surgery.

What does this spell for his value?? Is it too early to assume he will be groomed as a closer? Are his SP days numbered?

Here's a link to the story.

I would assume based on what I'm reading here that there's a very good chance this will happen. I would assume (note that I do NOT have any inside information) that they would not want him to close. I would think that the amount of time it would take him to get ready as well as the fact that he's just now moving to the pen from the SP role would make them prefer him as a guy that might come in and pitch both the 7th and 8th. I could of course be dead wrong and seeing as how this is Dusty Baker we're talking about he may decide to have Wood pitch every day for 3 innings a day ;)[/url]

Trainer Mark O'Neal reiterated that Wood will have arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder after the season to "clean up" fraying in the rotator cuff and labrum, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Because doctors have told Wood he can't damage the shoulder any more by finishing the season, the surgery may be delayed until the offseason as long as Wood can show that he can pitch effectively as a reliever. In his last start, Wednesday in Cincinnati, his velocity dropped to 87 miles-per-hour on his fastball. Wood by his own admission won't be able to survive long unless he can increase his velocity through his current throwing program. The Cubs won't know the extent of the damage until the operation. So if he has the surgery in October or November, there is no telling how long his recovery time will be. "It depends on the severity of what they have to do when they get in there," O'Neal said. "If it's done at the end of the season and it's a simple debridement of the cuff and labrum, then he would be ready by spring training." Wood has felt improvement in his shoulder after getting a cortisone shot Thursday in Cincinnati. "The last three days I have thrown," he said of playing catch.

I dropped him for whatever scrub was pitching for SF last night. Had a great outing too...much better than the non-outings I've been getting from Wood lately.
