      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.

      Travis Wood: Cut loose by Padres

      Travis Wood was released by the Padres on Wednesday.Wood will hit the open market after being designated for assignment earlier in the week and subsequently passing through waivers untouched. The 30-year-old southpaw struggled in 2017, posting a 6.80 ERA and 1.73 WHIP across 94 innings split between the Royals and Padres. While his 4.00 ERA from 2010-2016 will likely help him latch on elsewhere, Wood's days as a viable fantasy option may ultimately be behind him.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Designated for assignment

      Travis Wood was designated for assignment by the San Diego Padres on Sunday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.Wood was designated for assignment to make room on San Diego's 40-man roster. He had a down season in 2017, accruing a 6.80 ERA over 94.0 innings with both the Royals and the Padres, likely prompting this roster move. There's a good chance Wood will be picked up off waivers. The 30-year-old looks to have several good years still left in the tank.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Tagged for six runs in loss

      Travis Wood (4-7) took the loss Monday against the Dodgers, allowing six runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in 4.2 innings.The southpaw had the tall task of taking on Yu Darvish and a 99-win team, but he did little to limit the damage. Wood allowed runs in all but one inning he pitched and only threw 62 of his 107 offerings for strikes. He may not make another start this season, and if that proves to be the case, Wood will finish the year with an ERA and K:BB of 6.80 and 65:45, respectively.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Fires quality start in win

      Travis Wood (3-3) tossed six innings of two-run ball Tuesday, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three and picking up the win over the Diamondbacks.Wood had given up 15 earned runs over his last two starts, so it's understandable if fantasy owners bypassed this surprising start against a dangerous Arizona lineup. It wasn't all roses for the veteran southpaw, as he gave up two more homers to bring his season average up to 1.8 HR/9 through 89.1 innings. Wood should be considered a low-end streaming option in his last scheduled start of the season against the Dodgers next Monday.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Serves up nine runs in Tuesday's loss

      Travis Wood (3-6) was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Twins. He allowed a career-high nine runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over 2.1 innings.Wood allowed 10 baserunners and was only able to record five outs in Tuesday's disastrous outing. The 30-year-old has now allowed 15 earned runs over his past two starts and has raised his ERA to an unsightly 6.80 on the season. The San Diego Padres are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but Wood could soon find himself out of a starting job if his struggles continue.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Shelled in loss

      Travis Wood (2-2) lasted just two innings Tuesday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits with a walk and a strikeout in a losing effort against the Cardinals.Wood was able to to hit a home run for the second consecutive start, but he also failed to complete five frames on the mound in both outings. The veteran southpaw has provided mixed results since joining the San Diego Padres' rotation (5.03 ERA), so it will be tough to trust him in his next start against the Twins next Monday.

      Padres' Travis Wood: Limited by high pitch count

      Travis Wood danced around 10 baserunners (four walks) while holding the Giants scoreless over 4.1 innings Wednesday. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision in a 5-0 win.Wood pitched in and out of trouble all night, but a high pitch count (97 pitches) led to an early hook and no win for his fantasy owners. The 30-year-old's poor control (4.1 BB/9) and susceptibility to the long ball (1.7) have limited his value in seven starts with the San Diego Padres. Wood shouldn't be considered anything more than a low-end streaming option in deep leagues when he takes on the Cardinals next Monday.
