MESA, Ariz. – Another piece of the Cubs Championship puzzle appears to be headed to Kansas City.
According to multiple reports, former relief pitcher and occasional outfielder Travis Wood is signing with the Royals.
Wood is the third Cub to make the switch to Royal blue.
Once the reported two-year deal is finalized, he’ll join Jorge Soler and Jason Hammel on Kansas City’s roster.
More changes may be in store for the 30-year-old southpaw, including a potential move from the bullpen to the starting rotation.
Last year, Wood went 4-0 for the Cubs during regular season, racking up a 2.95 ERA to go along with 47 strikeouts.
