After claiming right-hander Blake Wood on waivers from the Royals on Nov, 2, the Tribe signed him to a one-year deal late Thursday.



 Wood underwent elbow reconstruction surgery last year but is expected at some point to pitch next season. In 2011, he was 5-3 with one save and a 3.75 earned-run average in 55 relief appearances (69 2/3 IP).



  His salary in 2012 was $502,000, and reportedly he received a small raise for 2013.
