Alex Wood was amped up for his return to Turner Field. It's a night he probably started dreaming about last July 30, when he was traded to the Dodgers. Knowing it was coming for about a week got him even more amped, which the 25-year-old lefty, who starred at the University of Georgia, said is usually a good thing.

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...
ATLANTA -- The San Diego Padres entered Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves averaging 7.03 hits per contest this season. The Padres passed that mark in the third inning, tallied 12 on starter Alex Wood by the fifth inning, and finished with 13 hits on the way to a 5-2 win at Turner Field over the Braves.

Atlanta’s biggest problem in the last few weeks has been the once-resolute bullpen. One of the Braves’ best...
getty images The Atlanta Braves are ready to activate Jordan Walden which means someone will be kicked out of the bullpen. The odd man out appears to the Alex Wood. Wood has seen time in the rotation and the bullpen this season. The long-term plan is for the left hander to occupy a rotation spot but the Braves had been trying to limit his innings thus far. Already in June and limited...
Is Alex Wood ready to anchor the back of a deep Braves rotation? Growing up in the Philadelphia area, all I ever heard about was how awful the Phillies’ farm system was and how the Atlanta Braves seem to be a factory for talented, young pitchers. 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...
