However, it took Betancourt 508 PA to put up that mark, and Wood has only 153 PA to his name. If he were to have 508 PA at this pace, he would have an astounding -57.1 wRAA. To put that into perspective, the only player in 2009 to exceed +57.1 wRAA was Pujols. Think about it. The only way you can pair Wood with another player and break even on value is by pairing him with the best player in the league.
Edit: forgot to prorate Wood to the 700 PA Pujols had. Now he's up to an astounding -78.7 wRAA. Not even Pujols can make up for how bad Wood is. You'll need something like Howard (37.7) plus MCab (41.5) to make up for Wood's awfulness.
3 XBH in 25 hits in 153 PA
The two home runs he's hit went 360 feet and 375 feet, respectively (one classified as just enough and the other just enough/lucky)
.049 ISO nestled between Yunel Escobar and Jason Kendall
0.07 BB per strikeout, worst in the league (Cliff Lee-esque 41 K to 3 BB)
OPS+ is 11 (100 is average, bell curve)
389 career PA in the MLB with a .185/.209/.277 slash line
