Cubs make offer to Travis Wood

"He's a victor", general manager Dayton Moore said. Coming off a World Series title with the Chicago Cubs, Wood hopes to earn a starting slot in a rotation shaken by the death of Yordano Ventura in a auto accident. "That's what attracted us to Travis".

Just a week ago, Royals general manager Dayton Moore sat deep within Kauffman Stadium and admitted that he was probably finished building his starting rotation ahead of spring training. A former full-time starter who has spent much of the last two seasons in the Cubs bullpen, Wood is coming off a season in which he made no starts for the first time in his career. "Travis Wood gives us an opportunity to do that, match up better". But the deals for Hammel and Wood, combined with a $12 million, two-year deal for designated hitter Brandon Moss, means the Royals could eclipse $140 million in payroll for the second straight year. First reported by Jon Heyman from MLB Network, who tweeted: "Wood gets 2-year deal".

Speaking shortly after the Wada report was released, Semenya said earning the gold in this way would nearly be an empty victory. "That is our system and in Russian Federation that only works with pharma (doping)", she said on the recording.

Pitcher Brian Flynn was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a back injury. He owns a career record of 43-52 with a 4.00 ERA in 259 games (133 starts). Over 77 bullpen appearances spanning 61 innings (his lowest-ever Major League Baseball output), he posted a 4-0 record to go with a 2.95 ERA and 1.313 WHIP.
