Los Angeles Angels 3B Brandon Wood, who has been unable to show any consistency at the Major League level, will play for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League (AFL).

Along with Wood, five other Angels minor league prospects will be joining him at Mesa: pitchers Ryan Brasier, Robert Fish, Stephen Geltz and Eddie McKiernan and infielder Andrew Romine.

Wood, who was pegged as the Angels’ starting third baseman at the beginning of the season, largely failed to produce, prompting his demotion to Triple-A affiliate Salt Lake in late May.

In the 39 games played before his demotion, Wood hit a paltry .156, with 2 HR and 7 RBI. His overall lack of production prompted Angels’ GM Tony Reagins to acquire Alberto Callaspo from the Kansas City Royals on July 22.

At the time, Reagins insisted that the acquisition of Callaspo did not have a negative impact on Wood’s future with the Angels.

However, with a .165 batting average and just 3 HR and 12 RBI thus far on the season, it is clear that Angels’ management is growing impatient in terms of Wood’s development.

Wood was originally asked to play winter ball in Latin America in hopes of regaining his batting stroke and confidence. Wood instead opted for the AFL, which plays its games between Oct. 12 and Nov. 20. Wood is getting married in December, and chose to remain close to home.
