Pirates Trade Tim Wood to Rangers
The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded relief pitcher Tim Wood to the Texas Rangers for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Wood was recently designated for assignment by the Pirates to make room for Ross Ohlendorf, who was coming off of the 60-day disabled list. Wood struggled in his limited innings with the Pirates this year, with a 5.63 ERA and a 2:8 K/BB ratio in eight innings in the majors. However, he dominated the AAA level, with a 2.84 ERA and a 32:12 K/BB ratio in 44.1 innings, frequently flashing an upper 90s fastball.
