After overview of Kerry Wood's actions following his outing Tuesday evening, Mlb has made the decision that no disciplinary action is going to be taken from the 34-year-old right-hander.
Wood first thrown his glove in to the stands then his cap while exiting the area after quitting two runs in a single inning of labor towards the Atlanta Braves. Wood joined inside a tie game and also the Braves wound up using the lead permanently.
Manager Dale Sveum were built with a mixed response to Wood’s actions saying it wasn't ideal behavior, but he understood where it had been originating from.
“I don’t condone it or wish it to occur constantly, but everyone knows within this game there's frustration that occurs,” Sveum stated before Wednesday’s game.
Sveum also stated he still expects on using Wood at the end of-inning situations but this is not on consecutive days. Wood continues to be on the limited schedule since spring training as he pitched under six innings in Cactus League play.
In 2 excursions since coming from the disabled list due to shoulder irritation, Wood has quit a set of runs every time.
Throwing equipment in to the stands in the way that Wood did Tuesday was thought to warrant a maximum of an excellent, but an Major league baseball representative stated there is pointless for punishment.
