Another Setback for Wood

Kerry Wood to have his knee scoped on Tuesday

According to several reports from Peoria, AZ the Cubs have announced that Kerry Wood will have arthroscopic surgery this Tuesday in Los Angeles on his right knee. All reports are indicating this is not a setback for Wood, who threw a bullpen session on Friday. I witnessed him throwing and practicing with the team and was very shocked at the report I heard on XM Radio when I left the park in Peoria.

If Wood is having problems, I feel this is a good time to do the surgery. The Cubs are saying this will only set him back two weeks.
