Talk about putting heavy weight on recent performance.
After Brandon Wood’s .167/.259/.250 start in 13 games for Estrellas, the Dominican Winter League club has released Wood, according to Baseball America correspondent Bill Shaikin.
"You’ve got to perform pretty much right off the plane," Angels farm director Abe Flores told Shaikin.
No kidding. Wood, playing primarily third base, had six walks and 16 strikeouts in 54 plate appearances. Other than Wood, Wilton Veras (.563 OPS in 13 games) and Ed Rogers (.606 OPS in 9 games) have seen the most time at third base for Estrellas, which also has sent Tony Blanco, Javier Guzman and Henry Mateo out to the hot corner this winter.
Wood, 23, hit .296/.375/.595 in 103 games during the regular season for Triple-A Salt Lake, though he managed to bat just .200/.224/.327 in 155 at-bats with the big league club.
