The Chicago Cubs have placed Kerry Wood on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of shoulder inflammation retroactive to April 14.
To take his place on the roster, the Cubs have recalled left-handed reliever Scott Maine.
Wood, 34, has a 0-0 record with an 11.57 earned-run average in 2 1/3 innings and four strikeouts. He complained of right shoulder soreness last weekend and had cortisone shot Tuesday. He missed the Cubs' three-game series at Miami this week.
The 13-year veteran is in the second season of his second stint with the Cubs. He has a career record of 87-74 with a 3.66 ERA and 63 saves.
Maine has a 1-0 record and one save with a 1.42 ERA in 20 innings pitched for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs.
