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.
Alex Wood (shoulder) is scheduled to pitch a three-inning simulated game on Tuesday.
Wood will then throw a bullpen session before moving on to a four-inning sim game. This will likely keep him sidelined into September. The lefty is currently on the IL with shoulder inflammation.
Alex Wood is slated to throw a bullpen session on Saturday and, if all goes well, will pitch a simulated game on Tuesday.
This is just one more step in Wood's progression as he works his way back from shoulder inflammation that has kept him on the injured-list since July 28th. Barring any setbacks he could rejoin the Dodgers towards the end of next week.
