Rangers Designate Tim Wood For Assignment

The Rangers designated Tim Wood for assignment, according to Anthony Andro of FoxSportsSouthwest.com (on Twitter). They placed Wilmer Font on the 60-day disabled list in a related move.

The Rangers acquired Wood from the Pirates earlier in the month, after the Pirates designated him for assignment. The Rangers sent Wood to the minors after acquiring him and he struggled through four appearances for Triple-A Round Rock, allowing nine hits, five earned runs and three walks in 4 2/3 innings, striking out a pair.

Wood has appeared in 57 games with the Marlins and Pirates in parts of three big league seasons, posting a 4.50 ERA, 4.3 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9. The Marlins selected the right-hander in the 44th round of the 2002 draft.
