Wiki

Kerry Lee Wood (born June 16, 1977) is a National Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Wood recorded over 200 strikeouts in four out of his first five seasons, with a high of 266 in 2003.

Wood has struggled with injuries throughout his career, being placed on the disabled list 14 times in the 13 seasons of his major league career. He missed the entire 1999 season due to elbow surgery in spring training. In recent years, he has had three serious arm injuries, and started only a total of 14 major league games from Opening Day 2005 through the middle of 2006. Wood returned to the Cubs during the 2007 season as a relief pitcher, and served as the team's closer in 2008.

Wood became a phenomenon while attending MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, for his first three seasons of high school baseball. He continued his domination of batters at Grand Prairie High School in his final season as a high school player.
