25-year old righty swinging 3B/SS Brandon Wood came to the majors with a ton of hype as he crushed a lot of homers in his minor league career. But it has not converted into any success at the major league level. Wood has played in 63 games for the Angels this year and he is 30 of 182 (.165 avg, .410 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 3 homers and 12 RBIs. He swings at everything as he has an utter lack of discipline at the plate as he has only walked 4 times this year while whiffing 54 times. Wood has now played in 149 games in parts of 4 seasons with the Angels and he is 73 of 406 (.180 avg, .479 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 10 homers, 31 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He has walked 11 times now and whiffed 128 in his major league career to date. The Angels wouldn’t likely get much for Wood in a trade so the choice is really to keep him or cut him. It will be interesting to see what the Angels decide to do with him.
