Kerry Wood's 2011 option

19

Kerry Wood's 2011 option vests if he finishes 55 games in either 2009 or 2010. As Castrovince pointed out in his notes on Monday, he has finished 44 games so far with 26 games left to be played: * Regarding a CastroTurf Commenter's question about Kerry Wood's vesting option status, Wood has finished 44 games this season, with 26 to play. He needs to reach 55 for his $11 million option for 2011 to vest. It's starting to get interesting. While it still seems unlikely to me that Wood will reach 55 games finished this year, can anyone explain what recourse Wood would have if the Indians began to sit him in save situations? Is it merely to have the union and/or players association file a grievance with the owners, and if so, what exactly are their options once the grievance is filed?
