The Rangers announced Wednesday that they have returned Rule V pick pitcher Coty Woods to the Colorado Rockies. Woods made 10 appearances with the Rangers this spring, allowing three earned runs in 10 1/3 innings while striking out 10 batters. He'll add to the Rockies' Triple-A pitching depth.
The Rangers and Rockies are working out a deal for reliever Coty Woods. Texas selected Woods from the Rockies in the Rule-5 draft this offseason. The team would like to keep him, but not on the major-league roster. In order to do that, they would need to work out a trade with the Rockies. If a deal cannot be reached, the Rockies can get Woods back for $25,000
