Alex Wood Is Finding His Strikeouts Again

Just before the trade deadline, the Braves, Marlins, and Dodgers struck a big deal, at least in terms of quantity of players and money being moved around; 13 players changed uniforms, and when the dust settled, the Dodgers came away with a trio of pitchers to upgrade their staff: starters Alex Wood and Mat Latos, along with reliever Jim Johnson. While they had been a heavily-rumored...

WATCH: Alex Wood lost grip mid-pitch, called for balk

Alex Wood’s first start with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night was going pretty well. Until the seventh inning, that is, when he forgot how to throw a baseball. The recently-acquired left-hander found himself in a bit of a jam with two runners on and a full count to Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera. Here was his payoff pitch:             This...

Alex Wood’s Disappearing Strikeouts

After the 2014 season, Alex Wood was one of the most exciting young pitchers in the game. Before turning 24, he turned in a season that was worth nearly 3 fWAR and 4 RA9-WAR, pitching 172 innings of 77 ERA- and 88 FIP- baseball as a starter and a reliever. His 2013 debut saw similar flashes of brilliance. He wasn’t a superstar, but he was a very solid number two starter at such...

Southpaw Wood to rejoin Braves' rotation Wednesday vs. Astros

Well, so much for the Braves walking on eggshells with Alex Wood's much-anticipated return to the starting rotation -- in terms of clearing a spot without bruising any egos. In the wake of Gavin Floyd's significant injury from Thursday (fractured right elbow), Wood will officially assume Floyd's rotation spot next Wednesday (against the Astros), the club announced on Friday.

This reputation has continued to hold true for both squads with the next Braves’ addition being Alex Wood in 2014. At 6’4, 215 pounds...
