Tigers pitcher Travis Wood is getting a cast removed from his finger Thursday, according to Detroit News, after an obscure injury.
According to the report, Wood nearly had the right index finger on his non-pitching hand snapped in two a month ago in a crossbow accident.
Wood signed with the Tigers this winter with an invitation to spring training, where he is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation. Wood has a career record of 47-59 and a 4.26 ERA, but he struggled with the Padres last season, finishing 4-7 with a 6.80 ERA.
Things didn’t work out that way.
Robinson was inconsistent at best and downright disastrous during stretches with the Saints, leading him to hit the bench on multiple occasions.

Youth Brett Kern Jersey After his rookie deal expired, Robinson moved on and produced a competent campaign with the Chargers, but a three-year deal with the Colts ended poorly and led him back to free agency after one season.
It seemed like Robinson was closer to being out of football than he was to a meaningful role on a playoff team, but the Eagles signed him for one year and $775,000, stuck him in the slot, and got the best season of his life.
In ESPN leagues in which a mere one active catcher is needed, I mostly ignore the position until the final round or two. There is not much reliable depth, but then again, I do not want to spend a high selection on Gary Sanchez, either. Catchers are not like other hitters in terms of dependability, either statistically or for durability. Buster Posey is awesome; he averaged a mere 13 home runs the past two seasons! Give me Yadier Molina or Welington Castillo in the final round. — Eric Karabell
My approach to drafting catchers is going to vary greatly dependent upon league format, but Womens R.A. Dickey Jersey whatever it is, I regard the catcher position as the most woefully thin position in fantasy baseball, and it’s indisputably not close. Using Player Rater measures, which don’t adjust for position scarcity, only six catchers in 2017 cracked the top 300, and not a single one made it into the top 100 overall. The No. 10 catcher, Yasmani Grandal, batted .247 with 22 home runs, 58 RBIs and 50 runs scored, thresholds that were attained in combination by 71 other non-catchers.
Many NBA players are ill-equipped for life after basketball. Bosh, who was raised in a tech-savvy home (his mother was a longtime employee of Texas Instruments), appeared as though he would be the exception.
