Last night saw the trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers pay off, at least for one game, as Yasiel Puig crushed a walk-off hit off of the wall in right-center field in extra innings to beat the Chicago Cubs. One of the other pieces in that deal between the Cincinnati Reds and Dodgers, Alex Wood, has yet to appear in a game for the Reds this season. And from the sounds of it, it’s going to be a while until he does.
John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer provided an update on the left-handed pitcher. Manager David Bell had this to say about Alex Wood:
There’s a pretty good chance he’s going to start a throwing program next week, it’s not 100 percent.
