Angels' Blake Wood: Shifts to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

Wood's move to the 60-day disabled list opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for David Fletcher's contract selection. Wood is expected to miss the remainder of the 2018 season and a good chunk of the 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May.

Angels' Blake Wood: Undergoes successful surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Thursday.

Wood will now be sidelined for the next 12-to-14 months while recovering from the procedure. He'll likely be shifted to the 60-day disabled list at some point to free up a 40-man roster spot for the Angels.

Angels' Blake Wood: Set to undergo Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday.

Wood had been dealing with damage to his UCL, and it's since been announced that he'll require Tommy John surgery. He'll be forced to miss the rest of the 2018 season, and likely most of the 2019 campaign as he works his way back.

Angels' Blake Wood: Dealing with damaged UCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) underwent an MRI which revealed damage to his UCL.

This is an unfortunate development for Wood, as the veteran right-hander was on the cusp of returning from an elbow impingement before suffering the setback. He's set to receive a second opinion before determining the next step. As is often the case with UCL injuries, Tommy John surgery is firmly on the table for Wood.

Angels' Blake Wood: Ready to rejoin club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) said Friday he is ready to rejoin the Angels, but he may make another rehab appearance, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Wood allowed a run in 1.2 innings pitched over his two rehab appearances, but most importantly, his elbow is feeling fine after the work. The Angels may delay his return until this weekend for roster management reasons, though, and they may want him to make another rehab appearance to keep his arm warm. The Angels have an off-day Monday, so Wood's latest return date would likely be Tuesday against the Blue Jays

Angels' Blake Wood: Works second rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) allowed one run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning for High-A Inland Empire Thursday, striking out one and totaling 18 pitches, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander appeared to get through the assignment without major hitches, despite the mediocre line, but the club will soon provide information on his next steps. Wood could rejoin the club in the coming days.

Angels' Blake Wood: Another rehab outing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) will make another minor-league rehab appearance Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

The 32-year-old, who has been sidelined since April 23 with an elbow injury, tossed a scoreless inning in his first rehab appearance for High-A Inland Empire on Monday. It's unclear where Wood will report for Thursday's outing at this point, but he could be back with the Angels shortly thereafter if everything goes off without a hitch.

May 16, 2018 01:48 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: Slated for another rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) will likely require at least one more rehab appearance, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Wood tossed a 13-pitch scoreless inning for High-A Inland Empire on Monday in his first rehab game. The 32-year-old could return for this weekend's series against the Rays if one additional rehab appearance is all that's needed, but the specifics of where and when that outing will occur are currently unavailable.

Angels' Blake Wood: Begins rehab assignment Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment at High-A Inland Empire on Monday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wood, who has been on the disabled list since April 21, began throwing off a mound Friday. The expected length of the rehab assignment is unknown at this point, but the 32-year-old appears to be nearing his potential return to the Angels.

May 11, 2018 05:04 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: Throws off mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) threw off a mound Wednesday and again Friday, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wood has been out since late April with an elbow impingement. He's likely to begin a rehab assignment next week. Prior to the injury, he was throwing well, recording a 2.31 ERA in 11.2 innings.

Angels' Blake Wood: Closing in on mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) is expected to throw a bullpen session in the near future, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Wood's return to mound work was supposedly imminent for a few days, but the Angels have been reluctant to clear him to do so while he continues to experience some minor inflammation in his right elbow. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since April 21 with the injury and will almost certainly require a minor-league rehab assignment before coming off the 10-day disabled list.

May 2, 2018 01:36 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: In midst of throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood (elbow) said Tuesday that he has resumed a throwing program but has yet to progress to mound work, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Wood is now pain free after an elbow impingement resulted in him landing on the 10-day disabled list April 23, but there probably won't be a clear timetable for his return until he progresses to facing hitters. The right-hander, who sported a 2.31 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 11.2 innings prior to hitting the DL, is expected to be used in middle relief once he's activated.

April 24, 2018 11:04 AM
Angels' Blake Wood: Dealing with elbow impingement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood's previously undisclosed injury is an elbow impingement, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The severity of the issue and the length of Wood's recovery are not yet clear. Eduardo Paredes was called up to the big leagues to take Wood's place.

April 23, 2018 05:00 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: Out with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood was placed on the disabled list Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Wood's injury is not yet known. Through his first 13 appearances this season, the 32-year-old has a solid 2.31 ERA, though his strikeout rate (21.3 percent) and walk rate (14.9 percent) are each trending in the wrong direction compared to last year.

Angels' Blake Wood: Picks up hold Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood recorded two outs while allowing a hit Friday, picking up the hold in a 2-1 victory over the Athletics.

Wood picked up his second hold of the young season after posting just three in 72 appearances last year. Those in holds leagues shouldn't overreact, as the 32-year-old has several arms ahead of him in the Angels' bullpen, so the holds may be few and far between over the course of the season.

Angels' Blake Wood: Avoids arbitration with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood agreed to a one-year, $1.45 million deal with the Angels on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

Splitting time between the Reds and the Angels last season, Wood posted a 5.45 ERA while striking out 84 over 74.1 innings. That ability to miss bats makes the 32-year-old an intriguing low-to-mid leverage option for the Angels, but he has just two career saves in 257 career appearances in the majors, so don't look for him to work his way into a high-leverage role. The contract includes $50,000 in incentives.

August 26, 2017 07:56 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: Added to big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood was added to the Angels' major-league roster, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

After being claimed off waivers from Cincinnati, Wood reported straight to the big-league club, replacing Mike Morin in the bullpen. Wood has had issues with walks this year, but he averages 96 mph with his fastball and misses bats at a strong clip. His 3.67 FIP this season is almost exactly two full runs lower than his ERA.

August 25, 2017 08:52 PM
Angels' Blake Wood: Claimed off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday.

The Angels shifted Matt Shoemaker to the 60-day DL to make room for Wood on the roster.He posted a rough 5.65 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 57.1 innings for the Reds, but the Angels hope they can coax out more of the form that led him to post a solid 3.99 ERA with 81 strikeouts over 76.2 innings in 2016. Expect Wood to report to Triple-A.

August 23, 2017 05:16 PM
Reds' Blake Wood: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood was designated for assignment Wednesday.

Wood had a treacherous outing Wednesday. In just an inning of work he gave up five runs on three hits and three walks, which drove his ERA and WHIP up to 5.65 and 1.62, respectively. In a corresponding move, the Reds selected Alejandro Chacin's contract from Triple-A Louisville.

August 23, 2017 10:20 AM
Reds' Blake Wood: Crushed for five-run eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood got knocked around by the Cubs in the eighth inning of Tuesday's loss, giving up five runs on three hits and three walks with one strikeout.

He just allowed four runs without recording an out against the Braves on Saturday, and if you add in a similar implosion back on Aug. 11, Wood has now been walloped for an insane 14 runs (all earned) on 12 hits and five walks in his last 3.2 innings -- a 34.36 ERA and 4.64 WHIP. He'd been due for a course correction in ERA thanks to a WHIP that's been inflated all year long, but this run has been far more egregious than expected.
