Cubs might extend Prior rehab
Kerry Wood's tenuous status might complicate Mark Prior's return to the Cubs.
The bullpen is always on call with Wood unlikely to pitch more than five or six innings during the early stages of his big-league comeback. Asking the relievers to cover as many as four innings for Prior, too, would give manager Dusty Baker some valid concerns about the long-term impact on his bullpen.
So when Prior makes his third minor-league rehab start Thursday, it might not be his final one. The Cubs want him "overready.''
