Rangers Acquire Tim Wood

The Pirates have traded reliever Tim Wood to the Rangers today, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Wood, 28, appeared in 13 games with the Pirates this season but really struggled. Not only did he post a 5.63 ERA in his 8 innings of work, but his ugly 2/8 K/BB ratio indicates that he probably pitched even worse than you'd expect given his ERA. Before this season, he had spent his entire career bouncing around the Florida Marlins organization, making brief appearances with the club in 2009 and 2010.

It's not impossible to see why the Rangers may like him, though. At 28, he's still pretty young. His Triple-A numbers have been pretty solid this year, with a 2.84 ERA and 2.86 FIP in 44 innings. And most importantly, he's been sitting in the mid-90's with his fastball, showing the kind of raw stuff that will always intrigue MLB teams.
