    Wood's MRI Comes Back Negative

    August 21, 2001

    By Sheila Dwyer, Shoulder1 Staff

    Chicago Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood has been on the disabled list since August 4th with tendonitis in his shoulder. Though results of an MRI taken on August 20th revealed no serious damage to the joint, Wood is expected to be benched until September 1st.

    Team doctors insisted on an MRI for Wood because the pitcher felt constant discomfort in his shoulder. They wanted to make sure Wood’s shoulder had not sustained structural damage. “He had soreness one day in the front,” said Cubs manager Don Baylor. “The following day it was in the back. That was a red flag.”

    The team looks forward to having Wood back in the game in early September. “We’ll give [his shoulder] a chance to really get strong. He’ll do his workout exercises. That’s our target date,” Baylor said. “It’s been a roller coaster ride ever since his departure from the rotation. It’s been a juggling act.”

    Wood was the National League’s Rookie of the Year in 1998. He missed the 1999 season, however, due to elbow ligament replacement surgery. So far this season, he has racked up 10 wins and 6 losses with a 3.50 ERA.
