MLB Note - Cincinnati Reds Wood, Blake

Aug 24, 2017 - 8:03 AM RHP Blake Wood was designated for assignment on Wednesday, the day after a nightmarish eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs when he allowed five earned runs, three hits and three walks. He also tossed a wild pitch that struck the home plate umpire. "He's been our most durable pitcher," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He took the ball every time we asked, often after going two innings the day before. The bulk of his work here has been positive, but his recent performance led to this." Tuesday was the second straight rough outing for Wood, who gave up four earned runs and four hits, including a homer, while facing just three Braves batters on Saturday.
