Blake Wood escaped a bases-loaded jam to earn his first save as a Red on Tuesday against the Braves.

The Reds turned to Wood with Tony Cingrani having pitched three out of the last four days. He walked a pair and allowed a single to load the bases with no one out but escaped with a strikeout and double play. Wood looks like he might be next in line for saves and has struck out a batter per inning this season, but he has major control issues and can't be trusted in high-leverage situations.

Reds signed RHP Blake Wood to a one-year contract.

Wood was most recently with the Pirates. In their minor league system, he held a 3.99 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio across 58 2/3 innings. The numbers were serviceable enough that the Reds opted to secure the 30-year-old right-hander on a major league contract.

Blake Wood has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old right-hander spent the 2015 campaign in the Pirates organization, compiling a 3.99 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings. There should be bullpen-starved teams interested in inking him to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Pirates reassigned RHP Blake Wood to minor league camp.

Wood was knocked around for five runs in 7+ innings during Spring Training. This is par for the course, as he posted a 4.46 ERA in the minors last season. Barring a rash of injuries on the Pirates' big league club, he'll serve as organizational depth.
