The Cubs have sent Kerry Wood back to Chicago for a cortisone shot in his right shoulder.

Wood has had shoulder issues "on and off" since spring training, according to general manager Jed Hoyer.

The right-hander was shut down for 10 days in mid-March without any explanation except to say they were "saving bullets."
