Overnight Dispatches

From Rotoworld:

Kerry Wood will make his next start Sunday on five days’ rest. With the Cubs not playing on Thursday they could have elected to skip Glendon Rusch in the rotation, but they are doing the prudent thing and giving Wood’s cranky shoulder an extra day off.

Brandon Webb threw seven scoreless innings against the Mets on Wednesday but wasn’t involved in the decision of a 1-0 game that lasted 13 innings. One of the best pitching matchups of the year saw the red-hot Webb against the future Hall of Famer in Pedro Martinez. Neither pitcher allowed a run in a combined 15 innings of work. Webb was trying to become the first pitcher to record his ninth win of the season. Despite the lack of a win, he still was able to extend his scoreless innings streak to 25. Webb had thrown back-to-back complete game shutouts against the Braves and Reds in his previous two outings.

Jeff Kent, still dealing with soreness in his left wrist, will have an MRI on Thursday when the Dodgers return to Los Angeles. “We’ve got to find out for sure,” manager Grady Little said. “It’s a little better, but it’s not good enough to play.” If Kent goes on the DL, the Dodgers would likely bring back Oscar Robles.

Clay Hensley improved to 4-3 by holding the Rockies to two runs in six innings on Wednesday. Hensley ends the month of May at 3-1 with a 2.93 ERA in six starts. He’s not much of an option in shallow formats, but he should continue to provide value in NL-only leagues.

Taylor Buchholz surrendered three runs in five innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals. Buchholz, Cardinals starter Jeff Suppan and the subsequent relievers all had to deal with a maddingly inconsistent strike zone from Gary Darling in this one. Buchholz was OK, mainly because he had Juan Encarnacion to bail him out of trouble. With the bases loaded in the first, Encarnacion hit a lazy fly to right on the first pitch he saw for the final out of the inning. In the fifth, Buchholz made Encarnacion look terrible on a strikeout with runners on second and third, only to give up a run when Brad Ausmus failed to handle strike three. Buchholz gets the Cubs next, making him worth using in NL-only leagues for one week at least.
