Tulowitzki and Woods Joining Drillers for Playoffs
The Tulsa Drillers will begin Texas League Playoff action on Wednesday night for the first time ever at ONEOK Field, and they will be doing it with some new additions to the roster. The two new players are very familiar faces to the Tulsa fans. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and relief pitcher Coty Woods will join the Drillers on Wednesday, and both have both played for the Drillers in 2012.
Tulowitzki most recently played in three games at ONEOK Field last week during the Drillers final regular season homestand while rehabbing from groin surgery. The GoldGlove shortstop hit .300 (3-10) with a homer and two s while with Tulsa. Tulowitzki has played with the Drillers in the 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 seasons.
Woods rejoins Tulsa after appearing in 23 games for Triple A Colorado Springs. The right-hander earned a call-up to Triple A after bolstering the Tulsa bullpen during their first-half championship run. Woods appeared in 38 games with the Drillers and allowed only 3 earned runs. He recorded 16 saves and struck out 34 hitters in 35.2 innings. The Texas League Mid-season All-Star will replace Brett Jacobson on the Drillers roster.
Tulsa will host Springfield in games one and two of the North Division Playoff Series on Wednesday, September 5 and Thursday, September 6. Both games will begin at 7:05 p.m. in downtown Tulsa.
