Wood Unlikely To Approve Trade

Cubs veteran Kerry Wood will not approve any trade proposed to him by the Cubs, tweets Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.  It's more likely that the right-hander signs a new deal with the club.

In late June, Wood said that it would take a "great" offer for himself and the Cubs organization for him to sign off on a trade.  Several teams would like to acquire Wood and his affordable $1.5MM salary, including the Diamondbacks.  The 34-year-old would likely find himself with a number of attractive options but it seems as though he'd prefer to stay put given his ties to the Chicago area.

In 33 appearances for the Cubs this season, Wood has a 3.45 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and 5.2 BB/9.
