Detroit Tigers left-handed pitcher Travis Wood left Thursday’s game after slipping on the infield grass and injuring his left knee. The Tigers have described the injury as a sprain. Wood was making his spring debut after being sidelined by an offseason finger injury . While pitching in the fourth inning, he caught a line drive and then trapped a baserunner between second and third base in a rundown. Upon pivoting toward second base, he fell immediately and grabbed his leg. No other details were available at press time. Wood, 31, signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers this winter after pitching for the Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres in 2017.
