Wood could miss two months

Indians closer Kerry Wood is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a moderate strain in the right lat muscle  (upper back).

Wood has not pitched since experiencing discomfort in the area on March 10.

The Indians do not feel it is a long-term injury.

Right-hander Chris Perez is expected to fill the closer role while Wood rehabilitates the injury.
