Cubs | Travis Wood helps himself

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:28:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood allowed five runs - two earned - and seven hits with one walk over five innings in a no-decision Friday, July 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He recovered after a rocky start, allowing three runs in the first inning.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Wood settled down and allowed himself to stay in the game, because he homered in the fourth inning to help his own cause. He remains nothing more than a stopgap NL-only fantasy option in head-to-head. His 7-9 record, 5.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP does little for rotisserie owners.

Cubs | Travis Wood struggling over past month

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 20:06:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood has posted 20 walks over his past six starts (34 1/3 innings), and that's more free passes over the past 30 days than any other pitcher in the majors. He is 1-3 with a 4.98 ERA during the span with an opponent batting average of .277 and a 1.63 WHIP.

Fantasy Tip: Wood has struggled with command problems all season, walking 48 batters over 110 2/3 innings, but lately it has been worse. Right now he should only be used in deeper NL-only head-to-head formats and some deeper mixed rotisserie leagues for his strikeouts.
