Chicago’s pitching staff is getting a big boost today, as the Cubs activated both Ryan Dempster and Kerry Wood from the disabled list while sending Randy Wells and Scott Maine back to Triple-A.

Dempster has been out since April 18 with a quadriceps injury, while Wood has been sidelined by a shoulder injury since April 14.

Earlier this week manager Dale Sveum indicated that he might work Wood back into the late-inning mix somewhat slowly, perhaps giving him some appearances in the sixth- and seventh-innings as opposed to his usual eighth-inning role.

Dempster will return with a start this afternoon versus the Reds in Cincinnati, where he pitched for two seasons before joining the Cubs in 2004.

    He just doesn’t know how to win, apparently.
