Description: Atlanta starter Alex Wood (8 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 7 K's, 1 BB) was a tough luck loser Thursday against the Phillies.
Insight: The only run he allowed came on a Ben Revere RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning. Pitching dominated this series as Atlanta and Philadelphia combined for just two runs in the final two games.

Description: Braves 23-year-old left-hander Alex Wood allowed one earned run and struck out five in seven innings Tuesday against the Brewers to pick up his first win of the season.
Insight: Wood gets a lot of ground balls and allowed just three home runs as a rookie last year. He had a 3.54 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP and 54 Ks in 56 innings as a starter and finished with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP in 77 2/3 innings.

Description: After giving up 11 earned runs on 11 hits over his last two starts, Braves rookie Alex Wood will be skipped Thursday, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
Insight: Atlanta will start veteran Freddy Garcia against the Marlins. The Braves want to get the 22-year-old Wood some extra rest after he threw 132 1/3 innings combined between the minors and majors this season, up from 52 2/3 last year with High-A Rome.

Description: Braves rookie Alex Wood walked four batters Tuesday against Cleveland, but he didn't give up a run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings to improve to 3-2.
Insight: Wood has gone 3-0 with a 1.46 ERA and a 35/10 K/BB in 37 innings over his last six starts. With Brandon Beachy going back on the DL with elbow inflammation, Wood will remain in the Braves rotation and should be owned in deeper mixed leagues.
 
8/11/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: Braves rookie Alex Wood had his third straight strong start Saturday against the Marlins, going six innings, striking out seven and allowing no runs on two hits.
Insight: The lanky left-hander has gone 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA, a 0.73 WHIP and 17 K in 19 innings over his last three starts. However, he's likely to return to the bullpen when Paul Maholm (wrist) returns next week.
 
6/4/2013 2:38:00 PM
Description: The Braves brought up Alex Wood who had been mowing down Southern League batters this season. He was 4-2 with a 1.26 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and yielded one earned run or less in seven of 10 starts.
Insight: Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Wood will be put in the Braves bullpen because of their injuries and well-stocked starting rotation. He won't have much fantasy value until he gets in the Braves or some other team's rotation.
