    • Dodgers' Alex Wood: Pegged for NLCS Game 4 start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager Dave Roberts announced that Wood will start Wednesday's Game 4 of the NLCS against either the Cubs or Nationals, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Wood was scheduled to pitch Game 4 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks but didn't get the opportunity to take the mound after the N.L. West champs put together a three-game sweep of their divisional foes. The 26-year-old made two starts against the Cubs during the regular season, allowing one earned run over 8.2 total innings. He also found success in his lone outing against the Nationals, hurling six scoreless innings in a Sept. 15 victory.

    • Dodgers' Alex Wood: Selected as NLDS Game 4 starter
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wood will start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Barring a sweep of the Diamondbacks, Wood -- who posted a 2.72 ERA during the regular season -- will take the mound Tuesday in Arizona for a pivotal Game 4. The 26-year-old faced the Diamondbacks four times this season (three starts and one relief appearance), allowing six runs over 21 innings (2.57 ERA).

    • Wood (16-3) picked up the win over the Padres on Tuesday, giving up two runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings while striking out only one. Both runs scored on fifth-inning solo homers, but the Dodgers offense came to life after that to propel Wood to win No. 16. The lefty finishes the regular season with a stellar 2.72 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 151:38 K:BB in 152.1 innings, and he's lined up to start Game 4 of the NLDS next week, should the series last that long.

    • Dodgers' Alex Wood: Fans six through six Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wood walked away with a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out six batters in six innings. Wood likely could have pitched further into the game -- he was at just 82 pitches and hadn't allowed a hit since the Phillies' two-run second inning -- but manager Dave Roberts opted to pinch hit for him in the seventh frame in an attempt to tie the game and take the lead. It worked, and the Dodgers briefly took the lead -- putting Wood in line for the win -- before Philadelphia scored three runs of its own to reclaim the edge in the bottom half of the inning. He's now bounced back with a pair of quality starts after allowing nine runs over 11 innings in his first two starts back from the disabled list. Wood will carry a shiny 2.71 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 150:37 K:BB into his next start, which is scheduled for Tuesday against the Padres.

    • Dodgers' Alex Wood: Hurls six shutout innings Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wood (15-3) allowed no runs on three hits and one walk while striking out eight across six innings to earn the win Friday against the Nationals. Wood completely silenced the Nationals bats while receiving six runs of offensive support over the first two innings, as he cruised to his 15th victory of the season. Fantasy owners are likely relieved that he put together this solid outing after he allowed 12 runs over his last 17 innings covering three starts, and hopefully he's ready to dominate in the fantasy playoffs. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Phillies.
