2013 Wood has logged 58 innings over three seasons in the big leagues, and the results haven't been good. His recent minor-league performance has been solid, though, especially since the start of 2011. The 30-year-old will never be a relief ace, but did get nearly a strikeout per inning in Triple-A in 2012, and the Twins signed him to a minor-league deal in November, then added him to the 40-man two weeks later, with the idea that he could be a better bullpen option than the chaff they were stuck trotting out there in 2012.
2011 Multiple passes at a bullpen job didn't win hard-throwing Tim Wood the job security he sought, but he'll be in the Nats' NRI mash-up come spring training.
2010 Drafted way back in 2002, Wood's ascent was slowed by injuries and a late conversion to the bullpen. He was deployed mostly in low-leverage long-relief, with seven of 18 appearances coming with the Marlins ahead or behind by long scores. He throws a hard sinking fastball; despite good velocity and an evolving slider, Wood's approach hasn't thus far yielded a lot of strikeouts. On most teams he wouldn't be much of a threat to graduate into a higher-leverage role, but in the wild world of the Marlins, where players can be dealt for asking for more gruel, he could wake up one day as the most experienced pitcher on the staff.
2009 Although a bit old to be a prospect, Tim Wood pitched his way onto the 40-man by generating a ton of ground-ball outs and then shining in the Arizona Fall Leagues.
