Mark Saxon: Angels "All But Certain" Wood Won't Clear Waivers
Too bad for LAAoA, but I can think of a bunch of teams — the Orioles, say, or the Mariners — who could find room on their 25-man roster for a potentially high-risk, high-reward player like Wood.
If Wood were to clear waivers, he could report to Triple-A Salt Lake, but the Angels sounded all but certain that wasn't going to happen. If they don't trade him, another team likely would claim him off waivers because of his potential and relative youth.I very much doubt the Angels succeed in trading him, especially when all the other teams in baseball know he's been DFA'd.
