Quick hits: Wood blows another one

- Kerry Wood blew his second save in as many days against his former team. The Cubs defeated the Indians 6-5 in 13 innings on Saturday afternoon for their third consecutive walk-off win.

- Following up on an earlier story, Daisuke Matsuzaka’s next start will be skipped. He’s scheduled to examined by team doctors to determine whether his struggles are due to a physical problem. An MRI on his shoulder is not out of the question. He’s a good bet to follow a similar path to that of Chien-Ming Wang and Oliver Perez.

- Joey Votto will resume his rehab with Single-A Dayton on Saturday night. He could join the Reds when they return home on June 30. Votto has been sidelined since May 30 due to stress-related issues.

- Bothered by a sore left calf, Jermaine Dye is not expected to start again until Tuesday against the Dodgers.

- Carlos Beltran plans to get an MRI on his ailing right knee.

- And finally, it’s unclear whether anybody actually saw Pedro Martinez pitch in the Dominican Republic on Friday.
