Hunter Wood threw three shutout innings, allowing three hits and striking out three with no walks in a save against the White Sox on Monday.
Wood was called up from the minors on Monday and made an immediate impact. The 25-year-old righty can be used in many different roles for the Rays but most likely will be pitching in long relief and sometimes as an opener which means he won't be worth adding in fantasy leagues.
Hunter Wood pitched two scoreless innings against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, recording his first career win. He struck out one while lowering his season ERA to 4.18.
Tonight will be an extremely memorable night for Wood receiving his first career win. He has been used as an opener on eight different occurrences this season. That eliminates him from wining in those outings. He is not rosterable in any fantasy format and should continue being used as an opener and in many different situations out of the bullpen.
Hunter Wood allowed one run in one inning against the Yankees on Tuesday. He gave up three hits and a walk and struck out one. He raised his season ERA to 4.10.
Wood factored in his first big league decision today. The only problem is that decision was a loss. Wood was used as the opener for the Rays on Tuesday. He has now allowed five runs in 7 2/3 innings in the month of August. It seems that Wood is currently overmatched at the big league level. He could use a stint in the minors to work on some of his current issues.
Hunter Wood pitched two scoreless innings on Thursday as the opener against the Angels. He allowed one hit while striking out five. His season ERA sits at 3.05.
Wood should continue to be an opener through the rest of the season. He will not gain any fantasy value but will continue to be a key contributor to the Rays. The only way he should be owned is if a league has benefits for games started.
