Pitcher Profile: Why You Should Never Give Up On Wood

Oh man, it's back to real life!  After an awesome weekend in DC to see my Brewers (I'll share some fun graphics next week), it's back to pitching and back to Wood jokes. And of course I mean the criminally (for a stretch) underrated Alex Wood. Wood starting chucking phenomenally out of the gates, with blistering Ks and ratios.  But when Mike Minor got off the DL and Aaron Harang...

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.
