Chicago Cubs Rumors 2012: Team Not Done Acquiring Pitching, Hopes To Re-Sign Kerry Wood

Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Friday that the club is still in the market for starting pitching:

"We're not finished acquiring starting pitchers," Hoyer said on Friday. "We want to have as much depth as possible.

"At this point, we're still very much in the process of gathering as many quality arms as we can, and we'll put those pieces in place as we get closer to Spring Training," he said.

Hoyer also indicated that the team is still negotiating with pitcher Kerry Wood, and that they've made it "very clear" that they would like Wood with the Cubs in 2012.
