Reported by the Boston Globe, the Sox could be looking for Kerry Wood to be a late inning reliever. This all depends on whether the Cubs can iron out a deal with him. Apparently he wants to return to the Cubs but if he can’t the Sox would be interested.
From the source:
An interesting pitcher on Boston’s radar is Cubs free agent righthander Kerry Wood, who made the transition from oft-injured starter to reliever. Wood is trying to work out something with the Cubs, but if it doesn’t happen, he could be precisely the type of power arm the Sox like to have late in the game – the role they envisioned for Eric Gagné.
