    Is this a typo for former Angels top prospect Brandon Wood or is this a different guy? And can we move him to 2B?

    I would assume so. There is no Brandon Woods listed at Baseball Reference and Brandon Wood is most definitely playing mostly 3B at AAA Omaha.

    Same guy...fondly remembering how desperately everyone here wanted to trade Miggy to the Angels for some combination of him, Aybar, Kotchman, and or Adenhart (may he RIP ). How times have changed! Turns out Erik Bedard was the gift that keeps on giving

    Have heard that Wood acquisition is a player they like that adds AAA depth. This IS NOT about Schoop to Baltimore, too soon for that.

    At least we didn't have to give up Miggy this time.

    I remember when this guy was supposed to be the next big thing and everyone on the Orioles Scout board was clamouring for him.

    I wonder why he never reached his potential...

    Should we get him a hat that fits?

    In the minors he'd played 604 games at SS, 214 at 3B, 23 at 1B, 22 at 2B, and 8 in LF. Hasn't really played SS in any significant capacity since he was 24 in 2009. So...maybe? His bat sure disappeared after 2009 in AAA though.

    So does he become a backup? Navarro, Valencia, and Schoop all need to be getting regular ABs.

    The PCL is a huge hitters league but he made it there by age 20 playing shortstop. He at 22 and 23 he sported 970 and 910 OPS there while playing mostly shortstop (although I remember there being questions regarding his ability to stay there). He certainly was an interesting target but man did he falter in the bigs and never really got back.

    Totally a depth signing though. And probably not a bad one. He should help Norfolk out this year.

    I would think maybe he might replace one of those folk if one of them graduate.

    I would think that Flaherty would be the replacement to one of those players!
