Wood (knee) was released by the Tigers on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
This isn't all too surprising, as Wood is expected to miss the entire 2018 season after tearing his ACL and medial meniscus during his Grapefruit League debut last week. He's set to undergo surgery to repair his knee Wednesday, after which he'll turn his attention to getting ready for the 2019 season.
Wood is scheduled to have surgery on his knee Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Wood is set to go under the knife after suffering a torn ACL and a torn medial meniscus during his Grapefruit League debut last week. The 31-year-old will now turn his attention towards rehabbing for 2019 as he's expected to miss the entire 2018 campaign while recovering.
Wood, who was spotted on crutches Saturday at Tigers' camp, said he is hoping to have surgery on his knee early next week, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Wood tore his ACL and medial meniscus in Thursday's spring training game while attempting to catch an opponent in a rundown between bases. The lefty, who joined Detroit in the offseason, is most likely out for the season and will turn his attention to rehabbing for 2019.
Wood suffered a torn ACL and medial meniscus in Thursday's spring training game, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The injury occurred while Wood was attempting to catch an opposing player in a rundown during the third inning, and he fell to the ground in obvious pain. Beck notes that Wood is weighing surgical options, but it appears that the lefty's first season in a Detroit uniform has come to a very early end.
Wood limped off the field after suffering an apparent knee injury during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, Anthony Fenech of the MLB Network reports.
Wood fell to the ground in obvious pain after attempting to catch an opposing player in a rundown during the third inning of Thursday's contest. 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. The club released a statement that he exited with a left knee sprain, but there will likely be another update on his status in the coming days.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Wood signed a minor-league contract with the 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.
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.
Wood was designated for assignment by the 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.
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.
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.
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 Padres are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but Wood could soon find himself out of a starting job if his struggles continue.
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 Padres' rotation (5.03 ERA), so it will be tough to trust him in his next start against the Twins next Monday.
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 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.
Wood gave up five runs on nine hits while walking two and striking out three over five innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.
Wood labored through five innings (100 pitches) and was victimized by Giancarlo Stanton home runs on two separate occasions. This was the second time he surrendered five earned runs in his last four starts. The soft-tossing lefty has struggled limiting the long ball (1.9 HR/9) since joining the Padres' rotation July 28. That said, Wood has performed well in three home starts (2-0 with a 1.00 ERA), giving him streaming appeal in deeper formats. The 30-year-old's next outing comes in the friendly confines of Petco Park in a favorable matchup against the Giants next Wednesday.
Wood (2-1) was charged with one unearned on three hits over seven innings in a win over the Nationals on Saturday. He issued two walks and struck out two.
It wasn't the same vaunted Washington lineup we've seen for most of the year -- they were without Daniel Murphy and Bryce Harper -- but it was an impressive effort nonetheless. Wood caught the Nats looking at 19 called strikes, and he has now allowed a total of two earned runs in his last three starts (17 innings). Assuming all of the other Padres starters stay on schedule, Wood will face the Marlins in Miami his next time out.
Wood allowed two runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Monday against Philadelphia.
Wood has managed just one start of more than five innings since entering the San Diego rotation July 28. He owns a 5.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over his four starts in a Padres uniform, and despite 22 strikeouts in just 21 innings, he looks to be a fantasy non-factor the rest of the way.
