From Rotoworld, Rotowire:

Manager Dusty Baker said that Carlos Marmol will get the nod on Wednesday as originally planned after flirting with the idea of having Angel Guzman take his place, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Marmol has given up 11 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings over his last two starts.

Mark Mulder has been exercising and taking anti-inflammatory medication for his ailing pitching shoulder. Mulder, who is suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome, will be examined on Saturday to determine how a week off has helped the irritated joint

Prince Fielder hit his 15th and 16th homers Monday in the victory over the Cubs. Both were solo shots. Fielder’s last nine homers have come with the bases empty. He’s hitting .242 with one homer in 66 at-bats with RISP this season, something that should be a factor when it comes to determining the NL Rookie of the Year.

While hooked up to a motion-analysis device, Kerry Wood threw a side session in front of Dr. Tim Kremchek on Monday. A small imbalance between the anterior and posterior muscles in his shoulder was found. “Basically, there’s a slight imbalance there and it’s something we need to work on — that we have been working on — and that’s where his soreness is coming from,” trainer Mark O’Neal said. Wood will be shut down for four to five days, and concentrate on correcting the imbalance and then begin to do side work. It sounds like he’ll miss a month if all goes perfectly. Another setback could see him shut down for the season.
