Blake Wood -- show some love

Not many of us expected much of anything from Blake Wood this season -- and, of course, the season isn't over -- but at this point, Wood has been quite an under-the-radar contributor to the Royals bullpen this year. 

Just about all of his numbers are good-to-very good. 

 

ERA - 2.51

WHIP - 1.08

K/9 - 7.54

K/BB ratio - 2.67

OPS Against - .603

 

Now, while it would really only take a couple of bad outings to screw up those numbers, and of course there's a lot of season to go, I thought it a good time to appreciate what he's done and acknowledge that the mini-gamble to bring in Wood has, so far, paid off.

(also, I remember NY Royal and I have a spirited argument on whether it was worth it to pitch Wood in high-leverage situations...he might not be there yet, but Scott, you'll certainly have to admit that at this point Wood has certainly earned the right)
