According to the Orange County Register, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have called up Brandon Wood from Triple A Salt Lake. If Wood is available in your fantasy league go out and get him. Wood qualifies as a 3B and a SS in most fantasy leagues and finding a SS with Wood’s power potential is rare. He has legit 30+ HR power.
I think Wood is the real deal and I don’t think the Angels called him up to sit on the bench. Wood has excelled at every level in the minors and I expect no differently in the majors. Of course everything depends on playing time but with Vlad on the DL and with Erik Aybar being, well, Erik Aybar there is a great opportunity for Wood to DH or play SS for the Angels.
I also wanted to use this post to congratulate UMass coach Derek Kellogg and the rest of his coaching staff on landing Terrell Vinson who is #49 on ESPNU Top 100 of 2009. Welcome to the UMass family Terrell!!!!
