CHICAGO -- Cubs right-hander Kerry Wood threw off flat
ground, and Mark Prior pitched a regular side session at Wrigley
Field on Monday.
Wood missed his scheduled start Sunday after feeling tightness
in his right triceps. Tests showed inflammation but no tears, and
the Cubs are hoping he won't have to miss more than the one start.
He'll throw off flat ground again Tuesday.
Prior, on the disabled list since the start of the season because of an inflamed Achilles tendon and sore elbow, is on track to
return in June. He pitched two innings Saturday during an extended
spring training game in Mesa, Ariz., and could go to Class A
Lansing on Thursday for a rehab start.
