Cubs | Tsuyoshi Wada in danger of losing spot?

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 10:25:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada could be in danger of losing his spot in the starting rotation after being beaten up by the Washington Nationals in just 3 2/3 innings Friday, June 5, although manager Joe Maddon said he's not ready to make a change just yet. Ps Travis Wood and Edwin Jackson are candidates from the bullpen that could shift to a starting post. Wood has given up two runs in 6 1/3 innings since moving to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Wada ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is obviously a weak FantasyScore option if he remains in the rotation, and he doesn't have much strikeout upside. Neither does Wood if he were to return to a starting role. None of Chicago's options to fill out the backside of the rotation should be owned in shallow mixed leagues.

Cubs | Travis Wood to bullpen

Sat, 16 May 2015 16:49:09 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood has been moved to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Wood filled in for Hector Rondon for a save Saturday. Rondon had pitched three straight days and four of five days. He was warming in the bullpen behind Wood, so it doesn't seem like he has been demoted, but you never know with Joe Maddon. Wood loses most of his fantasy value if he pitches in middle relief.

Cubs | Travis Wood better at home

Thu, 14 May 2015 10:10:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA compared to 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA in four road starts this season. He's also 1-0 with a 2.37 ERA in three career starts against the New York Mets at Wrigley Field. Wood has allowed 12 total runs in his last nine innings, to go 0-1 in his two May outings, though.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 2-2 this year with a 4.96 ERA and 1.22 WHIP while fanning 34 hitters in 32 2/3 innings. His K/9 of 9.4 is nearly two strikeouts per inning above his mark last year, so expect that to come down. Wood is a risky FantasyScore option, even against the slumping Mets.

Cubs | Travis Wood with two-start week

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:45:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood will face the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday, April 27, and is slated to face the Milwaukee Brewers the following weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($3,700, 7.4% of your cap) is off to a good start with a 3.24 ERA and 17 K's in 16 2/3 innings. He'll be a solid low-end starter to use on FantasyScore next week, especially for the Brewers game.

Cubs | Travis Wood wins final rotation spot

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 17:24:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood will serve as the team's No. 5 starting pitcher to open the season, with SP Edwin Jackson to open in the bullpen. However, Wood will be slotted into the No. 4 starting post so the Cubs don't have back-to-back lefties in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Wood's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) first start of the season lines up at the Colorado Rockies next Friday. We don't recommend using the veteran southpaw at Coors Field at FantasyScore in his season debut.

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:26:36 -0800

Chicago Cubs SPs Travis Wood, Edwin Jackson, Felix Doubront and others are battling to be the fifth starter this season.

Fantasy Tip: The others would include Justin Turner and Tsuyoshi Wada. This is a battle to monitor throughout spring training, as the winner will hold value in deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats. Continue to check back for updates.

Cubs | Travis Wood not told about trade likelihood

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 00:55:00 -0800

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood has not been told by the team about the likelihood of his being traded, but Wood has accepted it as "part of the business" if he is dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Wood's status on the team was more cemented until the team signed Jason Hammel and Jon Lester in free agency. Right now, Wood will battle Tsuyoshi Wada and Felix Doubront for the fifth spot and could lose out. Watch this battle accordingly.
