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.

Cubs | Travis Wood pushed to Monday

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 20:24:21 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood has had his next start pushed from Sunday, Sept. 8, to Monday, Sept. 9, against the Cincinnati Reds, making room for SP Scott Baker (elbow) to work Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Wood is 0-3 with a 3.67 ERA in four starts against his former team this season, although Cincinnati is hitting just .204 against him. He might be in line for two starts in the upcoming week for head-to-head fantasy league owners, so he is worth using in most NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.

Cubs | Travis Wood might pitch in All-Star Game

Tue, 09 Jul 2013 19:18:12 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Tuesday, July 9, that despite the fact SP Travis Wood is scheduled to start Sunday, July 14, he might still get a chance to pitch in the All-Star Game July 16 at Citi Field in New York. "It will all depend on how Sunday goes," Sveum said. "(San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy) can use him for a left-handed hitter. It's going to be a side day anyway. I've got no problem with him pitching one inning, or 20 pitches. He goes all out on his side days anyways."
