Texas Rangers NRI’s to watch: RHP Hunter Wood

The 27-year old Wood has spent three seasons in the major leagues with Tampa Bay and Cleveland.

He has been a staple in each of their dynamic bullpens, and became a quality setup man.

Much like the Rangers did with Nick Goody last season, the took a flier on a guy who didn’t pitch much the year prior, in this case, not at all.

Over three seasons in the bigs, Hunter Wood has a career 3.32 ERA and 1.362 WHIP, adding 10 starts and 81 punch-outs to his line.

If he comes into camp and proves he is healthy, he could provide another solid reliever at the back-end of the Texas bullpen, and potentially a trade chip at the deadline.
