Dodgers 2, Rockies 0: Don Mattingly Robs Alex Wood Of His Maddux

After a 16-inning marathon last night, the Dodgers ran out the most “I don’t even care” lineup of the year against the Rockies tonight, and of course they won thanks to an A.J. Ellis homer and Alex Wood doing the Maddux … or he would’ve if Don Mattingly didn’t take it away from him after he got through eight innings on 78 pitches. —– A.J. Ellis provided all the...

Dodgers 2, Padres 0: Alex Wood, Andre Ethier lead the way

Alex Wood‘s best outing as a Dodger came in the team’s 2-0 win on Saturday night in San Diego. Despite walking four in his seven innings, Wood didn’t really seem like he was in much trouble. He allowed three hits and struck out three Padres. He was efficient, as he threw 97 pitches. He also got nine ground ball outs, which is his thing. He had a 1.69 GO/AO ratio coming into...

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...

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...

Alex Wood: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

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...
