Alex Wood on wrong end of pitcher's duel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood just can't seem to get any help from his teammates recently. Wood was nearly flawless Tuesday against the Marlins, but still ended up with the loss in a 1-0 final.

Wood limited the Marlins to just one run, coming off a fourth-inning single by Casey McGehee. That was pretty much all the Marlins' offense could manage, as they finished with one run on four hits, while Wood struck out a career-high 11 batters without a strikeout in eight innings of work.

Wood has run into some terrible luck to open the season, this season, and is now just 2-3 with a 1.54 ERA. He will look for his fortune to turn around in his next outing, scheduled for Tuesday against the Marlins. 


Who would be hard-luck loser Thursday? Alex Wood


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Braves left-hander Alex Wood played the role of hard-luck loser in a fine complete-game performance Thursday in Philadelphia.

Wood matched shutout innings with A.J. Burnett until yielding an RBI single to Ben Revere with two out in the eighth. He surrendered eight hits, walked none and fanned seven in lowering his ERA to 1.89. His lone walk kept the eighth inning alive.

He will get a chance to improve his 2-2 record in a Tuesday showdown against Miami stud Jose Fernandez.


Rainout allows Braves to slightly alter rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Following Tuesday's rainout against the Phillies, the Braves announced they would be skipping David Hale in the rotation. Hale was expected to start Tuesday.

Therefore, the rotation will remain on schedule. Julio Teheran will start Wednesday and Alex Wood will finish off the series Thursday.


Alex Wood collects win No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Braves starter Alex Wood did not go past the fifth inning on Saturday, but still managed to pick up his second win of the season in his team's 6-3 win over Washington.

Wood (2-1) surrendered a solo home run to Anthony Rendon in the opening frame before settling down. He was charged with one run on six hits and three walks while striking out eight over five innings pitched. He tossed 103 pitches, 64 of which were strikes. 

Wood owns a 1.89 ERA along with a 17:6 K:BB ratio over 19 innings pitched. He'll make his next start Thursday in Philadelphia.


Alex Wood takes tough-luck loss vs. Nationals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Braves pitcher Alex Wood continued his recent success with another dominant outing on Sunday. However, he was not backed by the Atlanta bats and was charged with his first loss of the season in a 2-1 defeat to the Nationals.

Wood (1-1) allowed a run-scoring infield single to Jayson Werth and a solo home run to Ian Desmond for his only blemish of the afternoon. He surrendered two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four over seven innings pitched.

Wood has allowed just three runs over 14 innings pitched. He will search for his second win of the season Saturday at home against Washington again.

Alex Wood starts season off on right foot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Braves pitcher Alex Wood got his season started off well Tuesday, tossing seven innings of one-run ball in a 5-2 win over the Brewers.

Wood allowed a leadoff home run to Carlos Gomez, but found himself and kept the Brewers off the board from then on. He allowed five hits and walked three batters, while striking out five and throwing 55 of 93 pitches for strikes en route to the win.

Wood made the majority of his appearances as a rookie out of the bullpen, but injuries have cleared up a spot in the rotation to open the season. The 23-year-old might make his next start Sunday against the Nationals.

Alex Wood continues outstanding spring in rain-shortened win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood has been pitching well all spring, and he had another gem Monday against the Astros. Wood kept his ERA unblemished with five scoreless innings during a 4-0 rain-shortened win (game called after five innings).

Alex Wood gets through three scoreless innings Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Braves pitcher Alex Wood managed to get through three scoreless innings Friday.

Wood is expected to open the year as the team's fifth starter. Grady Sizemore was the only member of the Red Sox who could touch Wood Friday, collecting the only two hits Wood gave up. Wood did not issue any walks, and struck out two hitters. 

Wood posted a 3.13 ERA in 77 2/3 innings last year. 


Alex Wood gets through debut unscathed


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Braves pitcher Alex Wood was able to get through his spring debut unscathed.

Wood tossed two innings, giving up three hits and no runs. Wood did manage to strikeout Jordan Lennerton and Ian Kinsler. Wood is competing for the last spot in the team's rotation this season. He'll be pushed for that spot once Gavin Floyd is ready.


Alex Wood unsure of his role to start season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) The Braves have not told pitcher Alex Wood whether he'll start the season in the bullpen or as a starter, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Gavin Floyd is expected to assume the final spot in the rotation once he's out of the disabled list, which is expected around May. Wood and Freddy Garcia are candidates to take that final spot once the season starts.


Braves unwilling to meet price for Jeff Samardzija, David Price


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) The Braves were unwilling to meet the Rays' asking price of pitcher Alex Wood, catcher Christian Bethancourt and at least two other top prospects to acquire David Price, nor were they willing to trade outfielders Justin Upton or Jason Heyward in a package for Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, MLB.com reports.

The Braves instead signed Gavin Floyd to a one-year deal rather than trade multiple significant pieces to acquire a proven ace. It appears to be a seller's market with regards to starting pitching that could potentially be traded this offseason.


Alex Wood back relieving for now


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/23/2013) Braves left-hander Alex Wood, who has been a regular part of the starting rotation since about the All-Star break, pitched a perfect two-thirds of an inning in relief Sunday at the Cubs, throwing just two pitches.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez expects to have Wood in the bullpen for the playoffs, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, though general manager Frank Wren was non-committal in an interview with MLB Network Radio Monday.

"It's one of the options we are talking about," Wren said.

The Braves have yet to say whether Wood will make one last start Sunday against the Phillies.


Alex Wood ejected following start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2013) Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood was unhappy with umpire CB Bucknor's strike zone during Wednesday's start against the Nationals, and he let him know it during a fifth-inning ejection.

Wood allowed just two unearned runs in 4 2/3 innings, but was clearly displeased with Bucknor calling a pitch to Jayson Werth a ball to load the bases in the fifth. Wood had to be restrained by teammates, while manager Fredi Gonzalez earned an ejection. Wood allowed a run to score to the next batter, and was pulled from the game, earning an ejection on the way out as he had additional words for Bucknor.

Wood was charged with just the two unearned runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out three batters. Wood settle for a no-decision in a 5-2 win, despite leaving the game down 2-0.

Wood is 3-3 with a 3.24 ERA in 75 innings on the season. He has not lasted a full six innings in any of his last four starts, a streak he will attempt to put to an end Tuesday against the Brewers. 


Braves to skip Alex Wood's next start


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2013) The Braves will skip starter Alex Wood's turn through the rotation Thursday, MLB.com reports. Wood has thrown 132 innings this season, just his second professional campaign, and so the Braves will give him some rest as they head down the stretch.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wood has faced severe struggles in his last two starts, giving up 11 earned runs in seven innings. He had surrendered just 10 earned runs in his first eight starts of the season after pitching out of the bullpen initially.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
