Cubs RHP Kerry Wood, who left his last game after two innings, will miss at least one start because of a sore pitching arm.

Tests performed on Wood by team physicians yesterday backed up the diagnosis of Lewis Yocum, who discovered inflammation in Wood's right triceps but found no structural damage or tears in the muscles or tendons, according to the Chicago Tribune.

* WILLIAMS LAWSUIT: The executor of Ted Williams's estate has sued the late Hall of Famer's oldest daughter and her husband, alleging they violated an agreement by repeatedly voicing their opposition to the placement of his body in deep freeze at an Arizona lab. The lawsuit said Bobby Jo and Mark Ferrell have continued to publicize their objections, despite the daughter's agreeing in late 2002 to drop her opposition to the decision by her siblings, the late John Henry Williams and Claudia Williams to send the body to the Alcor Life Extension Foundation.

* TEST FOR LEITER: Mets LHP Al Leiter traveled back to New York for tests on his sore pitching shoulder, including an MRI exam today. Manager Art Howe said Leiter felt soreness Wednesday, one day after allowing five runs in four innings.
