Serendipity again -- I had planned all along to make Wood the last in the community projection series (he'll be the sixteenth player we project); as it turns out, today is also a day on which he'll pitch, his second appearance of the spring.
Here's hoping it'll turn out just as well as the first.
Many of you, I know, think he'll become the closer by the end of the season. I'm one of those who thinks being a closer is in his future, but not necessarily this season. I do think he'll have a spectacular year as a setup man:

As noted above, this is the last in the projection series; I'll post all the final projections sometime over the weekend or early next week.
