Travis Wood’s season ends with ACL injury

5 Comments

It’s been a crappy few months for reliever Travis Wood. First he suffered a friggin’ crossbow accident that nearly snapped his finger in two. Now his season ends due to an ACL injury.

Wood suffered the injury — and a torn meniscus too — yesterday afternoon while executing a rundown between second and third base during his first outing of spring training. He’ll require surgery, the recovery time of which means he won’t pitch in 2018.

Wood, who was a non-roster invitee of the Tigers, pitched for the Padres last season. And he didn’t pitch particularly well, either, which means this could be the last we see of him in the majors.
