      Travis Wood really good in shutting down Pirates on Thursday

      Cubs reliever Travis Wood picked up his second save of the season in a 9-6 victory over the Pirates on Thursday, striking out five of six batters over two innings. Wood has actually now whiffed 10 of the last 18 hitters he's faced over two appearances, racking up an absurd 56 percent strikeout rate over that period. The appearance Thursday also marked the sixth consecutive trip to the mound in which Wood has not surrendered an earned run. An outstanding 10.76 K/9 rate continues to serve as the most valuable asset he brings to the mound.

      Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada to start Wednesday for Travis Wood

      Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada will replace Travis Wood in the starting rotation on Wednesday against the Padres, manager Joe Maddon said per the Chicago Tribune. Wood was moved to the bullpen on Saturday, earning his first career save in the game. Wada will join Chicago after his rehab stint this week. "I have a lot of faith in this guy coming out of the pen," Maddon said of Wood. "He has had some really good games this year and really good moments in other ones. Just go out there and be aggressive, assertive and let it go for an inning or two. I think when he does that, he can be really good. "We also talked to him about the potential of becoming a starter again at some point. But right now we are looking at it this way." Wada posted a 4-4 record with a 3.25 ERA in 69 1/3 innings of work in 2014.

He walked one, struck out five and was tagged for three home runs. Wood threw 97 pitches, 60 strikes. "This start and the last couple, it's been the home run that's gotten me and made me throw extra pitches," Wood said, per "Right now, it's the balls and a couple pitches -- I know there's always more than a couple that you miss within a game -- but the ones they're making contact with are the ones leaving the park. We've got to emphasize getting back to throwing strikes and throwing quality strikes." Wood's next start is scheduled for Wednesday, at San Diego.
