The Cleveland Indians are close to getting their closer.
The club has offered free agent Kerry Wood, the former Chicago Cubs starter-turned-reliever, a two-year contract, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the sides are still working through details at the winter meetings in Las Vegas.
Wood, who has had numerous injury problems in the past, needs to pass a physical before the deal can be completed.
I like this a lot, at least they'll have a closer with, you know, "closer stuff". That's my analysis, go see DiaTribe for actual knowledge.
