SP - SF - IL15
Alex Wood is set to throw again this weekend and the Giants will then make a decision on if he pitches again this season.
Wood was placed on the IL on September 3rd with a left shoulder impingement. With the Giants out of playoff contention, the team is likely going to be cautious when it comes to bringing Wood back. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable moving on from Wood if they have not already.
Alex Wood has been placed on the IL with a left shoulder impingement, retroactive to September 1st. Bryce Johnson has been activated.
No exact timeline has been given for a return, but Wood will miss at least the next two weeks. He really struggled in the month of August with an 8.40 ERA and only 2 quality starts in his last 6. He is droppable in pretty much all formats.
Alex Wood picked up the loss after allowing four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five in 4 2/3 innings of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Padres.
Wood's rough month of August wrapped up on Wednesday as he was hit with his third loss in a row. This veteran will wrap up this month with an 8.40 ERA in six starts, bringing his season-long ERA to 5.10. Despite flashing signs of fantasy production earlier in the season, he simply cannot be trusted in fantasy at the moment. The lefthander will have another tough matchup when he takes on the Dodgers on Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Alex Wood picked up the loss after allowing four runs on six hits while striking out four in three innings of Friday's 9-0 loss to the Twins.
Wood has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this month, recording three starts where he allowed six earned runs or more. The lefthander has an 8.53 ERA to go along with a .291 batting average against in August, good for a record of 1-3. It may be tough for the veteran to turn things around against the Padres on Wednesday.
Alex Wood picked up the loss after allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three in 4 2/3 innings of Friday's 7-4 loss to the Rockies.
After a really good month of July where Wood held a 1.65 ERA, he has not looked the same in August. In four starts this month, the lefthander carries a 6.45 ERA through 22 1/3 innings pitched. He will look to turn things around next weekend to close out the month.
