The Detroit Tigers released left-handed reliever Travis Wood on Tuesday, following recent news that the pitcher had torn his ACL during training camp this spring. Wood is scheduled to undergo surgery on Wednesday, but will likely have to sit out the entire 2018 season while he rehabs. He signed a one-year minor-league deal with the Tigers in the offseason and was looking to work his way into the rebuilding Tigers’ bullpen. Originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds back in 2004, Wood made his way to the big leagues as a starter in 2010. In 208.2 innings over two seasons with the Reds, he posted a 4.18 ERA. Cincinnati traded Wood to the Chicago Cubs in 2012, and that’s where the lefty would spend the next five seasons.
