Cubs reliever Kerry Wood expects to come off the 15-day disabled list in time for a weekend series against the White Sox.

Wood has been sidelined by a blister on his right index finger.

He says Thursday that he ''felt great'' during a bullpen session Wednesday. Manager Mike Quade says the team's medical personnel will decide if the veteran is activated Friday.

Wood is 1-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 24 appearances

Wood rejoined the Cubs in the offseason, signing a $1.5 million, one-year contract when he might have gotten more elsewhere.
