Wood (4-7) took the loss Monday against the Dodgers, allowing six runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in 4.2 innings. The southpaw had the tall task of taking on Yu Darvish and a 99-win team, but he did little to limit the damage. Wood allowed runs in all but one inning he pitched and only threw 62 of his 107 offerings for strikes. He may not make another start this season, and if that proves to be the case, Wood will finish the year with an ERA and K:BB of 6.80 and 65:45, respectively.
Wood (3-3) tossed six innings of two-run ball Tuesday, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three and picking up the win over the Diamondbacks. Wood had given up 15 earned runs over his last two starts, so it's understandable if fantasy owners bypassed this surprising start against a dangerous Arizona lineup. It wasn't all roses for the veteran southpaw, as he gave up two more homers to bring his season average up to 1.8 HR/9 through 89.1 innings. Wood should be considered a low-end streaming option in his last scheduled start of the season against the Dodgers next Monday.
Wood (3-6) was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Twins. He allowed a career-high nine runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over 2.1 innings. Wood allowed 10 baserunners and was only able to record five outs in Tuesday's disastrous outing. The 30-year-old has now allowed 15 earned runs over his past two starts and has raised his ERA to an unsightly 6.80 on the season. The Padres are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but Wood could soon find himself out of a starting job if his struggles continue.
Wood (2-2) lasted just two innings Tuesday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits with a walk and a strikeout in a losing effort against the Cardinals. Wood was able to to hit a home run for the second consecutive start, but he also failed to complete five frames on the mound in both outings. The veteran southpaw has provided mixed results since joining the Padres' rotation (5.03 ERA), so it will be tough to trust him in his next start against the Twins next Monday.
Wood danced around 10 baserunners (four walks) while holding the Giants scoreless over 4.1 innings Wednesday. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision in a 5-0 win. Wood pitched in and out of trouble all night, but a high pitch count (97 pitches) led to an early hook and no win for his fantasy owners. The 30-year-old's poor control (4.1 BB/9) and susceptibility to the long ball (1.7) have limited his value in seven starts with the Padres. Wood shouldn't be considered anything more than a low-end streaming option in deep leagues when he takes on the Cardinals next Monday.
