The 32-year-old setup man suffered a right elbow impingement toward the end of April. He had a 2.31 ERA and 10 strikeouts through his first 11 2/3 innings this season out of the Angels' bullpen.

Angels placed RHP Blake Wood on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 22, with a right elbow impingement.

Wood was scored upon in his last three appearances after 10 straight scoreless outings, but he might have been pitching physically compromised. It's unclear how long he'll be on the shelf.

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.
