Nobody saw this coming from Wood, but it’s safe to say that early on, everyone is happy with his decision to give baseball one more shot.

Count on Wood serving as the team’s right fielder and cleanup hitter as he’s done the first seven games. He’s batting .364 with a team-leading three home runs and six RBIs through seven games. His 1.318 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) is the best on the team too.
