Wood to face hitters in simulated game
"He looked great," Indians manager Manny Acta said.
Acta said Wood will face hitters in a simulated game next week when the Indians play in Minnesota.
Wood made two appearances in spring training before a muscle in his upper back started bothering him. It's likely the right-hander will go on a minor league rehabilitation assignment before being activated.
Wood is making $10.5 million in the last season of a two-year contract.
