|Alex Wood bounces back with eight Ks vs. Phillies |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Braves pitcher Alex Wood got back on track with a quality start Sunday against the Phillies, improving to 7-7 on the year. The right-hander yielded one run on three hits and no walks while striking out eight over six innings of an 8-2 win.
Over his last four starts covering 24 1/3 innings, Wood has allowed 10 earned runs. He owns a 3.24 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 91 2/3 innings of work. His next start will come Friday at home against San Diego.
|Alex Wood picks up no decision after tough start |

(7/11/14) Braves pitcher Alex Wood had a rough start against the Cubs Friday.
Wood gave up four runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out six during the outing. Wood cruised through his first two innings of work, putting the Cubs down in order. The third inning brought some complications. After putting the first two men on, Wood gave up a sacrifice fly and an RBI single, giving the Cubs a 2-0 lead.
The Braves would come back to tie the game while Wood tossed up two more scoreless innings. Things then unraveled in the sixth. Wood again put the first two batters on base before hitting Welington Castillo with a pitch. With the bases loaded, Chris Coghlan singled in a run, chasing Wood from the game. Shae Simmons came on in relief, and allowed one run, which was charged to Wood.
Wood was set to lose the game, but the Braves mounted a comeback in the ninth inning. His next start will come after the All-Star break.
|One mistake enough to send Alex Wood to loss Sunday |

(7/6/14) Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood was effective over seven innings Sunday against the Diamondbacks. However, one big mistake was enough to send him to defeat in a 3-1 loss.
Wood (6-7) was locked in a scoreless battle with Wade Miley until Paul Goldschmidt hit the left-field foul pole with two outs in the third inning, putting Arizona ahead 2-0 with his 16th home run of the season.
Wood would not allow another run the rest of the way, but the damage was already done. He was charged with two runs on three hits and three walks, while striking out two. It was his first loss as a starter since May 4.
The lefty is expected to make his next scheduled start Friday against the Cubs.
|Alex Wood strikes out seven Mets Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/30/14) Braves pitcher Alex Wood wasn't a factor in the decision Monday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and one walk in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 5-3 win over the Mets.
Wood surrendered a leadoff home run in the top of the first inning and gave up one run in each of the second and third innings, but he was able to gut it out to pick up a quality start. He owns a 3.19 ERA and 74:17 K:BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. Wood is slated to take on the Diamondbacks Sunday.
|Alex Wood breezes through seven innings in return |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/25/14) Braves pitcher Alex Wood dominated the Astros in his return to the majors Wednesday, in a 4-0 win.
The Braves wanted to keep Wood on a pretty limited pitch count, but he still made it through seven innings on just 79 pitches. He worked through the Astros with little trouble, allowing three hits and one walk in seven innings of work. Wood also struck out four batters in the win, which evened his record at 6-6 for the season.
Wood has been searching for a consistent role all season, having made eight starts in the majors to go with 11 relief appearances, as well as some time in the minors. He should be in the rotation for good moving forward, and carries a 3.07 ERA in 67 1/3 innings into his next outing, set for Monday against the Mets.
|It didn't take long for Alex Wood to get to the majors, making his MLB debut May 30 last season, which came roughly about a year after he was drafted in the second round. Wood's college pedigree gave him the advantage of moving quickly through the minors, but he basically blazed a path to the majors. Wood would initially debut as a reliever before making his first career start in mid-June. He wouldn't join the rotation until late July, but he had decent success as a starter and reliever. Wood went 3-2 with a 3.54 ERA in 11 starts, while going 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 20 relief outings. Wood also struck out 8.7 batters per nine innings as a starter, while striking out 9.6 batters per nine innings as a reliever. With Tim Hudson departing for San Francisco, Wood is a strong candidate for the final spot in the Braves' rotation. Wood might endure some growing pains in 2014, but he has upside pitching for a contender. Wood is probably more of a late-round Fantasy pick, but in formats where he can be used as a relief pitcher, he might creep into the middle rounds Draft Day.
