You can tell it’s late January because the minor transactions are transacting.
According to Kennedi Landry with texasrangers.com, the Rangers have signed right-handed pitcher Hunter Wood to a minor league contract with an invitation to the major league camp.
The good news here is that Wood was drafted by Tampa Bay, the team that knows more about pitching than anyone else.
In three years, two with the Rays and one with the Indians, Wood has pitched 86 innings, mostly out of the pen, with an ERA of 3.32.
Cleveland released him last year, having kept him all season in their minor league alternate training complex.
Whether he makes the major league roster of the minor league roster, on thing is certain.
Hunter Wood has great hair.
