LHP Alex Wood picked up the win on Monday when he allowed one run on four hits with three walks and seven strikeouts in the Giants' 3-1 win over the Rangers.
Wood just keeps on trucking. He limited the underrated Rangers' offense to just one run over his seven innings of work. He did issue three walks, which was a season-high but he managed to punch out seven batters as well. Wood should continue to roll as long as he can remain healthy, which has always been an issue for him. He now owns a sterling 1.80 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, and 29:8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings (five starts). He draws the Pirates in his next turn.
LHP Alex Wood earned a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed two runs on four hits with a pair of walks and two strikeouts in the Giants' 8-6 loss to the Rockies in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader.
Wood held the Rockies down through his first three innings before C.J. Cron got him for a two-run homer in the fourth. He limited the damage other than the long ball and has his season ERA down to an impressive 1.96 with a 0.78 WHIP and 22:5 K/BB ratio over 23 innings (four starts). He draws the Rangers at home in his next turn and should be an affordable and solid DFS option in that one.
LHP Alex Wood picked up his third win of the season on Wednesday when he allowed two runs on four hits with a pair of walks and nine strikeouts over six innings as the Giants beat the Rockies 7-3.
Wood had a no-hitter going into the sixth inning until Garrett Hampson laced an RBI double. He then came back out for the seventh but started to run out of steam as he walked Trevor Story to lead things off before serving up three straight singles. One runner ended up scoring but he did more than enough to secure his third win of the season. The 30-year-old now owns a stellar 1.50 ERA and 0.67 WHIP over his first three starts in Gaints' uniform. He gets the Rockies on the road in his next turn.
LHP Alex Wood picked up his second win of the season on Friday when he allowed just one run and one hit to go along with seven strikeouts and one walk in the Giants' 5-3 win over the Marlins.
If only Wood could face Miami in every start as he's now allowed just one run over his first two starts of the season, both against the Marlins. He allowed a solo home run to Jazz Chisholm Jr. in the top of the first inning but completely shut down Miami after that. He now owns a 0.75 ERA and 0.42 WHIP over his first 12 innings of the season. Wood should be a popular streaming candidate in his next turn when the Giants host the Rockies.
LHP Alex Wood picked up the win on Sunday when he scattered three hits over five innings while striking out four in the Giants 1-0 win over the Marlins.
Wood was making his Giants debut on Sunday after starting the year on the IL with a back strain. He showed no signs of rust, limiting the Fish to just three hits over his five innings of work. He was on a pitch count so he only fired 61 pitches--42 strikes--in the outing. He'll get a rematch with the Marlins at home in his next start and should be a popular DFS play for that one.
