UPDATE: Wood scratched from scheduled outing

SATURDAY, 6:31pm: Enjoy spring training traditions?  Here’s one for you:

According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Indians closer Kerry Wood was scratched from a scheduled one-inning appearance Saturday due to right arm soreness.  The Indians are calling it “spring-training soreness,” but that won’t stop the punch lines.  Wood has a well-chronicled history of arm issues and seems to miss time ever year (or every spring) because of some kind of ailment.

24-year-old righty Chris Perez is already breathing down Wood’s neck for Cleveland’s ninth-inning role and the former Cubs starter has supposedly been on the trading block all spring.  He had a 1.38 WHIP and a 63/28 K/BB ratio in 55 innings last season while tallying 20 saves in 26 chances.  Perez, acquired last season from the Cardinals in a package for Mark DeRosa, had a 1.19 WHIP and a 68/27 K/BB ratio in 57 frames.

    No paint will level the scratches and black is difficult to match also the shine whether it is flat or high gloss.

    I think I know what you’re saying, spambot. Kerry Wood’s arm is like a car that’s been in a bad collision; you can bang out the dents and buff out the scratches, but the frame damage will always come back to haunt you.
