Travis Wood turns in a strong start against Reds


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Cubs pitcher Travis Wood turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Reds. 

Wood allowed two hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out five and walked one during the outing. Wood was never really threatened during the start, as none of his base-runners wound up advancing past first. Wood gave up a single in the first inning, but then set the next 10 Reds hitters down. A walk broke up that streak, but didn’t throw Wood off his game. He gave up another single in the fifth inning, but struck out Johnny Cueto to end any possible threat. Wood threw 96 pitches during the start. 

With the win, Wood improved to 8-11. He’ll take on the Cardinals in his next start.

Travis Wood winless in his last 10 starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood had one of his best starts of the season Sunday against the Rays. However, he walked away with a no-decision, as Chicago wouldn't win Sunday's game until the 12th inning.

Despite the strong performance, Wood hasn't won in his last 10 starts. He is 0-4 in that span. He will be back on the hill Friday at N.Y. Mets.

Command problems to blame for Travis Wood's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) It's easy to conclude Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood is having a rough campaign in 2014. The most evident number is his career-worst 5.12 ERA through 20 starts.

"I think it's a command thing for Travis," pitching coach Chris Bosio said Sunday, per MLB.com. "He's getting in hitters' counts and doesn't have the command he had last year. We talk about it a lot as a staff. Try to find out what's working and what's not working. Unfortunately for Travis right now, he shows flashes and the next thing you know, he'll walk a guy.

"He's had more 3-0 counts this year at this point than he had all of last year. Last year, he was unbelievable and very consistent, National League All-Star, but unfortunately for baseball players, these are cycles we go in. He's trying to find it, and he's searching."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs waiting another day or two to finalize rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Following the trade of pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he will likely make a decision about who replaces them in the rotation on Monday or Tuesday, per MLB.com.

For now, the rotation aligns with Edwin Jackson starting Monday at Cincinnati, and he will be followed by Travis Wood and Tsuyoshi Wada during a doubleheader Tuesday. One candidate to join the rotation is Dallas Beeler, who allowed one unearned run over six innings in his lone start for Chicago June 28 against the Nationals.

"There's nothing that says they can't come in here and perform and help us win ballgames," Renteria said of promoting pitchers from the minors. "We're really hopeful that the guys that we have within the system will be able to come in and hopefully find a sense of comfort within that clubhouse and when they go out to the hill. Obviously, there's some nervousness that comes with the new area, the new arena. But usually those guys are able to adjust and perform."
