Cubs place Prior, Wood on DL; Grissom retires

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

Cubs pitchers Mark Prior and Kerry Wood went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Neither move came as a surprise, as both have been rehabbing from injuries.

Prior, who has not pitched in a spring training game, has a strained muscle in the right shoulder. Wood had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee this month to repair a minor cartilage tear.

Also at Cubs' camp, Marquis Grissom announced his retirement after a 17-year major league career.

Grissom, 38, leaves as one of seven players in major league history to have 2,000 hits, 200 home runs and 400 stolen bases. He was a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner.
