Cubs say RHP Wood Returning for 2012
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs say free agent pitcher Kerry Wood will return for the 2012 season.

The team made the announcement Friday at the Cubs Convention, the club's annual fan festival. No contract details were provided.

The 34-year-old Wood went 3-5 with a 3.35 ERA in 55 relief appearances last year. He missed the end of the season because of a tear his left knee that needed arthroscopic surgery.

Wood wanted to stay with the Cubs. He lives in Chicago year-round, and the team's new management had made it clear that it wanted him back.
