Following his retirement as a player in 2015, Wood was hired to manage the Tri-City Dust Devils, the Padres affiliate in the Class A-Short Season Northwest League for the 2016 season. After one season, Wood left the baseball industry and began a career in the private world. He currently works as an insurance agent for State Farm in Billings, Montana.
Wood was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates on April 22. In his April 25 debut for the Pirates, a home game against the Washington Nationals, Wood hit a two-run double and was part of a four-run fourth inning that gave the Pirates a 4–2 win. Wood played in a career high 99 games, hitting 7 home runs with 31 RBI's but struggled to make sufficient contact, managing just a .220 average.
On November 16, 2012 the Kansas City Royals confirmed they had signed Wood to a minor-league contract for the 2013 season. No financial terms of the deal were announced. Wood signed a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres in December 2013. He was released in March 2014. Wood then played for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, an independent baseball league. He batted .098 in 25 games, and decided to retire.
On April 19, 2011, Wood was designated for assignment by the Angels to accommodate Erick Aybar's activation from the disabled list.
Wood signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies on November 17, 2011. He spent nearly all the season with the Rockies Triple-A affiliate Colorado Springs, hitting 10 home runs with 64 RBIs and a batting average of .259.
Wood headed into the 2010 season with low optimism but ultimately began the season as the starting third baseman for the Angels. On June 27, 2010, Wood hit his first Major League grand slam off Colorado Rockies reliever Manny Corpas. He finished the season with a .146 batting average, including four home runs, in 226 official at-bats.
In the 2009 offseason, third base appeared to open up for Wood as All-Star third baseman Chone Figgins signed a four-year deal with division rivals the Seattle Mariners. Wood went into Spring training, preparing for a shot at the majors. "I'm going in to spring training to win a job", he said, "That keeps you on your toes. If you think that job is yours, you might get lazy. I've got to be ready to work, rather than sitting back and saying I paid my dues, I waited for my time." He cited first baseman Kendrys Morales, who had just come off a breakout 2009 season, as a role model. The Angels' willingness to part with Figgins was in part because they had Wood waiting in Triple-A. Bill Shaikin reported, "The Angels also think that, as Wood improves his plate discipline and gains a better command of the strike zone, he will add a key power component to the lineup." Wood began the season in AAA, getting called up for a couple of games at the end of April before being sent down to AAA again. He hit .195 in just 18 games.
Wood began 2007 as a top 10 prospect by Baseball America once more, holding the 8th spot overall. He changed positions however, as he slid over to third base for the other highly talented shortstop Erick Aybar. This move was made in part to accelerate his track to the majors.
Wood was called up to Angels' major league club on April 25, 2007 and made his major league debut at third base the following day against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Prior to the call-up to the big club, Wood was batting .278 (22-for-79) with three home runs and 15 RBIs in 20 games with Salt Lake. Wood's first major league at-bat came against Jae Seo. He struck out swinging. He started his second game at third base for the Halos on April 29, picking up his first career base hit off Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks. After the game, he was optioned back to Triple-A Salt Lake. He was recalled to the Angels on May 2. On September 12, 2007, against the Baltimore Orioles, he hit his first major league home run off Danys Báez.
He spent most of the 2005 season with the Angels' High-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, hitting .321 with a California League record 43 home runs and 51 doubles. Combined with two doubles and a triple in four games with the Triple-A Salt Lake Stingers, Wood became the first known minor leaguer to hit more than 100 extra-base hits in one year.
Wood received several awards for his performance in 2005. Amongst his accolades were: the Joe Bauman Home Run Award, the California League and Single-A Offensive Player of the Year awards, player of the year by Minor League Baseball's official website, and co-player of the year of the Angels minor league system, alongside fellow prospect Howie Kendrick.
Wood was selected by the Angels to play on their Arizona Fall League team, the Surprise Scorpions, in October and early November 2005. He hit a league-record 14 home runs for the league runner-up. In mid-November 2005, he represented the United States on the U.S. Olympic regional qualifying team.
Wood was drafted by the Anaheim Angels in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2003 amateur draft.
