The Chicago Cubs would like to re-sign reliever Kerry Wood.
"He makes us a better organization," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "That's because of what he brings to the clubhouse as well as his leadership so I'd like to get him back in the fold and move forward with him."
Wood, 34, had a solid season as a setup man, going 3-5 with one save, 21 holds and a 3.35 ERA before he was shut down in September to undergo left knee surgery.
It was second stint with the Cubs after spending his first 10 years with the club.

"The past is the past no matter where you are,” Sveum said. “You’re...
Aramis Ramirez's free agency seemingly came at a great time. 2011 was his healthiest season since '08, and he bounced back offensively to win the National League's Silver Slugger award at third base. Also to his benefit: he's the only free agent third baseman likely to be viewed as a starter at the position.
The occasional trip to the disabled list had never...
Theo Epstein wants Kerry Wood back with the Cubs, and given the reliever's desire to retire rather than play for someone else, the new president of baseball operations should get his wish.
Dale Sveum was named the manager of the Chicago Cubs for the 2012 season. This is after he has been a coach in the majors for most of the last decade. Sveum has two World Series rings, one in 1998 with the Yankees and one in 2004 with the Red Sox.
