Travis Wood being considered by the Yankees

Free agent RP Travis Wood has been considered by many teams this offseason and the Yankees are the most recent suitor. Wood is being looked at as both a reliever and a starter and the Yankees could use him in both roles considering their lack of depth in the rotation. He had a 4-0 record and 2.95 ERA with the Cubs last season. (Jon Heyman on Twitter)
Wood was a key part of the Cubs' bullpen in 2016 and was an All-Star SP with the Cubs in 2013. He only made nine starts with the Cubs in 2015, and limped to a 5.03 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 31 starts in 2014, so many teams have considered him as a reliever this offseason. Wood has only topped 200 innings pitched in a season once, so he probably should be a swing man at the most, but his 1.27 career WHIP is valuable.
