He was able to get up and limp to the dugout, but manager Ron Gardenhire and head athletic trainer Doug Teter immediately ran out to check on him while he was writhing on the ground, according to Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group.

      Tigers' Travis Wood: Cleared for spring debut

      Travis Wood (finger) will make an appearance in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.Wood has remained on a normal throwing program throughout the spring, but a January bow-hunting accident resulted in the 31-year-old entering camp with a splint on his index finger of his right (non-throwing) hand. The injury initially prevented Wood from fielding his position, but after getting the protection removed from his finger more than week ago, he was cleared to resume full activity. With Wood now ready to pitch in exhibition contests, he'll look to solidify a spot as a long reliever out of the Detroit bullpen.

      Tigers' Travis Wood: Faces hitters Tuesday

      Travis Wood (finger) threw live batting practice Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.Wood was previously unable to take part in catching and fielding drills during camp until he had pins removed Monday from his broken right index finger, which he injured in a January hunting accident. The lefty had been able to stay on track with his throwing program even while he was unable to catch, but now that he's able to defend his position, he shouldn't face any restrictions in his bid to win a back-end rotation spot or role as a long man out of the Detroit bullpen.

      Tigers' Travis Wood: Gets splint removed

      Travis Wood had the splint on his right index finger removed Friday and isn't expected to face any limitations while playing catch during spring training, Katie Strang of The Athletic Detroit reports.Since the injury was to his non-throwing hand, Wood, who required stitches for the digit following a January crossbow accident, had been able to throw bullpen sessions and take part in long toss when pitchers reported to camp last week, but was unable to don a glove while wearing the splint. After meeting with team doctors, Wood received the green light to remove the protection from his finger and looks like he'll now be able to proceed uninhibited in his quest for an Opening Day roster spot with Detroit. It's unlikely that Wood, a non-roster invitee, will merit serious consideration for the back end of the Detroit Tigers' rotation, but his existing familiarity with new pitching coach Chris Bosio from their time together with the Cubs along with Detroit's lack of lefty relief options could aid the 31-year-old's chances of claiming a bullpen gig.

      Tigers' Travis Wood: Unable to catch while dealing with finger injury

      Travis Wood had a pin inserted into his right index finger following a January bow-hunting accident and is unable to catch, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.Fortunately for the 31-year-old, the finger issue doesn't hinder him while he's throwing, so he should remain on a normal program throughout the spring as he looks to stake his claim to a spot at the back of the rotation or as a long man out of the bullpen. However, until he's able to ditch the splint on his finger and is cleared to resume catching and fielding, Wood's Grapefruit League debut could be delayed a bit.

      Tigers' Travis Wood: Inks minor-league deal with Tigers

      Travis Wood signed a minor-league contract with the Detroit Tigers on Monday which includes an invitation to spring training.Wood has found a new home after being released by the Padres earlier in the offseason. The 30-year-old struggled mightily in 2017, posting a career-worst 6.80 ERA and 1.73 WHIP across 94 innings split between the Royals and Padres. It appears he'll compete for a spot in the Tigers' rotation during spring after working as both a starter and reliever in 2017; there's a chance he winds up in the bullpen if he's unable to lock down a rotation spot. Regardless of his role, Wood will look to bounce back in 2018 with an ERA closer to his 4.26 career mark.
