Kerry Wood owners...time to get your hopes up.

Wood struck out 12 in a rehab start topping 97 mph. Should make a start on the 17th.

Rotoworld wrote: Kerry Wood (shoulder) struck out 12 in five scoreless innings during his rehab start for low Single-A Peoria on Saturday.
Wood gave up one hit, walked one and hit a batter in a 70-pitch outing. He touched 97 mph on the radar gun. "I probably have got one more (minor league appearance), and then I'll be ready to go," he said. "I feel good and I've been recovering pretty well. I just need to get that pitch count up there and be able to go deep into games." If all goes well, Wood will return to the rotation on May 17. Rich Hill would likely head back to the minors then.

Let's hope he can stay healthy till the 17th

I just picked up Wood off the WW. Dropped Freel I can't wait to get those strikeouts because I badly need them.

Give him one good start, and sell high.

I've been there, hoping for him to stay healthy. I'd be very surprised if he does not re-injure himself within a couple of months.

I've got Wood.
And I'm not letting go of him.

The problem is that his ceiling is so high and his risk so severe that I don't think I can get enough for him in a trade. Maybe if he can get a couple weeks behind him people will fall for a trade, but until then...

He might but people are so down on Wood I think it'll take more than one start before you can sell at all. Anyway, my team could really use the shot in the arm so here's to Wood staying healthy and doing well. ;-D

Unless you get huge value for Wood there is no point trading him. His upside is so much higher then his trade value. I feel I would rather take the risk because if you trade him and he stays healthy odds are you got ripped because your not getting much value form him right now. If you don't trade him he might get injured but he might be awesome. So IMO I would rather keep him then trade him.

Update:

Kerry Wood, coming back from arthroscopic shoulder surgery, most likely will make his first start of the season Thursday when the Chicago Cubs play the Washington Nationals.

Thanks for the head's up. Normally I'd like to sit a guy coming off rehab but a start against the Nationals is tempting.
