Wood struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings against the Mets on Saturday. Wood got four outs but only faced three hitters Saturday, as he induced the first batter he faced in relief of Jake Arrieta to hit into a double play. He's been a valuable part of the Cubs' pen this year, earning a 2.14 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 33.2 innings.
Wood (3-0) played the role of hero on Monday, tossing four perfect innings of relief against the Dodgers after starter Jason Hammel left with injury. Wood combined with three other relievers to no-hit the Dodgers for the final seven innings of the Memorial Day matinee. The lefty has been magnificent out of the bullpen in 2016, registering a 2.79 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. He could be an option to start down the road if the Cubs suffer an injury in the rotation.
Wood pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and earned the win in the Cubs' 2-1 victory over the Brewers in 13 innings Wednesday. Wood actually drove in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded walk in the the top of the 13th. While he's walked five batters and hit another in just 11 innings this year, opposing hitters are hitting just .195 against him, keeping his ERA in a safe area.
Wood pitched 0.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves, walking one batter and retiring two others. Having appeared in 11 games this season, Wood is continuing to show his value to the Cubs by shutting down batters in short stints out of the bullpen. The only blemish on his game logs this season is an outing where he surrendered two runs in less than one inning. Apart from that game, Wood hasn't given up any runs and is carrying a 0.95 WHIP and 9.95 K/9.
Wood struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning against the Angels on Monday. Wood likely won't pitch in the ninth inning in close Cubs wins this year, but he came into the game with a nine-run lead.
