Brandon Wood DFA'd

The Angels have DFA'd Brandon Wood.  While not a prospect in the proper sense of the term, Wood presents an interesting case due to his consistently strong AAA performance and his utter ineptitude so far in MLB.  I've created this thread to ask:

 

1. Does anybody still hold out hope for Wood salvaging his MLB career?

2. Is there a team which might present a good fit for Wood going forward?

3. Assuming Wood is a Quad-A player, what red flags are there that we might learn from going forward?

 

While most point to Wood's AAA k rate as a red flag, it was no worse than Mark Reynolds'.  Wood still has a glove that plays at SS or 3B (though, it looks as though he's more of a 3b going forward.)  Personally, I'm of the mind that if given an extended look in the Majors (the Alex Gordon treatment), Wood may well break through and turn into something resembling Brandon Inge
