The Giants and LHP Alex Wood have to terms on a one-year, $3 million contract.
The deal includes up to $3 million more in incentives. Wood made nine appearances (two starts) during the shortened 2020 season and posted an ugly 6.39 ERA. The 30-year-old southpaw will likely compete for a spot in San Francisco's rotation.
The Dodgers added LHP Alex Wood to their NLCS roster.
Edwin Rios (groin) was also added. Wood missed time with shoulder inflammation this year and gave up nine earned runs in 12 2/3 innings pitched. Gavin Lux and Terrance Gore were removed from the roster.
Alex Wood allowed three runs on five hits and struck out two in two innings Friday against the Rockies.
Wood opened the bullpen game for the Dodgers, and allowed a three-run homer in the second inning. Wood now has a 6.10 ERA, 1.74 WHIP, and 13 strikeouts across 10.1 innings this season.
Alex Wood (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Tuesday and will be available out of the bullpen.
Wood made one start this season and has been dealing with left shoulder inflammation. The 29-year-old will come out of the bullpen until he’s ready to join the rotation.
Alex Wood (shoulder) threw a simulated game on Monday.
Wood had "a positive, but not overwhelmingly positive" simulated game on Monday," said Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts said. "We don't know the next step." Wood will most likely spend another week on the injured list as he continues to work his way through a shoulder injury. The 29-year-old allowed three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four across three innings in 2020.
