Ideally, he’s claimed and then gets a hangnail that requires a 6 week rehab stint in Indy. I wouldn’t mind keep Rodriguez too, but would not give up much. He could go to Indy and take up Friday’s ABs and some of Marte’s.

I thought he was going to be the Next Big Thing. And that’s when the inflation of the California League phenomenon hit me for the first time.

That plus his 128 K’s in 536 AB’s in the CAL should have been a flag.

Wood just is not a ML-player. It’s OK as a “lightning in the bottle” move, but don’t expect it to work out.

Would be a solid pickup. Rodriguez just doesn’t offer much – Wood has a much higher ceiling.
