Wood (knee) was released by the Tigers on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't all too surprising, as Wood is expected to miss the entire 2018 season after tearing his ACL and medial meniscus during his Grapefruit League debut last week. He's set to undergo surgery to repair his knee Wednesday, after which he'll turn his attention to getting ready for the 2019 season.

Wood is scheduled to have surgery on his knee Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Wood is set to go under the knife after suffering a torn ACL and medial meniscus during his Grapefruit League debut last week. The 31-year-old will now turn his attention towards rehabbing for 2019 as he's expected to miss the entire 2018 campaign while recovering.

Wood, who was spotted on crutches Saturday at Tigers' camp, said he is hoping to have surgery on his knee early next week, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wood tore his ACL and medial meniscus in Thursday's spring training game while attempting to catch an opponent in a rundown between bases. The lefty, who joined Detroit in the offseason, is most likely out for the season and will turn his attention to rehabbing for 2019.

Wood suffered a torn ACL and medial meniscus in Thursday's spring training game, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injury occurred while Wood was attempting to catch an opposing player in a rundown during the third inning, and he fell to the ground in obvious pain. Beck notes that Wood is weighing surgical options, but it appears that the lefty's first season in a Detroit uniform has come to a very early end.

Wood limped off the field after suffering an apparent knee injury during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, Anthony Fenech of the MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wood fell to the ground in obvious pain after attempting to catch an opposing player in a rundown during the third inning of Thursday's contest. He was able to get up and limp to the dugout, but manager Ron Gardenhire and head athletic trainer Doug Teter immediately ran out to check on him while he was writhing on the ground, according to Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group. There will likely be an update on his status within the next couple hours around the conclusion of the game.

Wood (finger) will make an appearance in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wood has remained on a normal throwing program throughout the spring, but a January bow-hunting accident resulted in the 31-year-old entering camp with a splint on his index finger of his right (non-throwing) hand. The injury initially prevented Wood from fielding his position, but after getting the protection removed from his finger more than week ago, he was cleared to resume full activity. With Wood now ready to pitch in exhibition contests, he'll look to solidify a spot as a long reliever out of the Detroit bullpen.

Wood (finger) threw live batting practice Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wood was previously unable to take part in catching and fielding drills during camp until he had pins removed Monday from his broken right index finger, which he injured in a January hunting accident. The lefty had been able to stay on track with his throwing program even while he was unable to catch, but now that he's able to defend his position, he shouldn't face any restrictions in his bid to win a back-end rotation spot or role as a long man out of the Detroit bullpen.

Wood had the splint on his right index finger removed Friday and isn't expected to face any limitations while playing catch in spring training, Katie Strang of The Athletic Detroit reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since the injury occurred on his non-throwing hand, Wood, who injured the digit in a crossbow accident in January, had been able to throw bullpen sessions and take part in long toss, but was unable to don a glove while wearing the splint. After meeting with team doctors, Wood received the green light to remove the protection from his finger and looks like he'll be able to proceed with his quest to win an Opening Day roster spot with Detroit. It's unlikely that Wood, a non-roster invitee, will merit serious consideration for the back end of the Tigers' rotation, but his existing familiarity with new pitching coach Chris Bosio from their time together with the Cubs and Detroit's lack of lefty relief options could aid the 31-year-old's chances of claiming a spot in the bullpen.

Wood had a pin inserted into his right index finger following a January bow-hunting accident and is unable to catch, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately for the 31-year-old, the finger issue doesn't hinder him while he's throwing, so he should remain on a normal program throughout the spring as he looks to stake his claim to a spot at the back of the rotation or as a long man out of the bullpen. However, until he's able to ditch the splint on his finger and is cleared to resume catching and fielding, Wood's Grapefruit League debut could be delayed a bit.

Wood signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday which includes an invitation to spring training.

EDGE Analysis

Wood has found a new home after being released by the Padres earlier in the offseason. The 30-year-old struggled mightily in 2017, posting a career-worst 6.80 ERA and 1.73 WHIP across 94 innings split between the Royals and Padres. It's unclear what role he'll compete for in spring training, as he appeared out of the rotation and in relief during 2017. He'll look to bounce back in 2018 with an ERA closer to his 4.26 career mark.
