CHICAGO -- Perhaps only Blake DeWitt is a big fan of the rain currently delaying the Chicago Cubs-Los Angeles Dodgers game at Wrigley Field on Sunday afternoon.

DeWitt is set to be designated for assignment so that Travis Wood can pitch in Sunday’s game. But that move won’t become official until just before game time. If the game isn’t started then no move is expected.

As of 2:15 p.m. CST, DeWitt technically was still on the Cubs roster.

Because it is the Dodgers’ final trip to Chicago everything is being done to make sure the game is played and it becomes official.

If it doesn’t happen, though, Wood won’t be needed to pitch and DeWitt can presumably keep his roster spot, unless a different move will be made.
