  • Giants' Alex Wood: Falters in fifth inning

    Wood did not factor in the decision against Colorado on Monday, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five.

    Wood gave up a run in the first inning but then kept the Rockies off the scoreboard in each of the following three frames. However, he was pulled in the fifth after giving up three straight one-out hits, and he was ultimately charged with two runs in the inning. This was the left-hander's shortest outing since his first start of the campaign, when he completed 4.1 frames against San Diego. Wood's next start will likely come at home against the Padres on Sunday.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Gets back in win column

    Wood (3-2) earned the win during Tuesday's 9-2 victory over Colorado, allowing one unearned run on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Wood put multiple Rockies on base in the first, fourth, fifth and sixth innings but was able to limit the damage to an unearned run in the fourth. Manager Gabe Kapler let the 31-year-old toss a season-high 104 pitches -- 15 more than his next highest total -- though Wood was only able to tie his season high in innings. He'll take a 3.60 ERA into his next start.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Suffers loss against former club

    Wood (2-2) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.1 innings.

    The southpaw cruised through three innings against the team for whom he has logged two stints, but Los Angeles broke through with two runs against him in the fourth. Mookie Betts then tagged Wood for a solo shot in the sixth, and the pitcher exited after facing just one additional batter. Wood did manage to rack up a season-high seven strikeouts in the outing, and he induced 13 swinging strikes overall. He'll carry a 4.38 ERA into his next start, which is on the schedule for Monday at home against Colorado.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Handed first loss

    Wood (2-1) took the loss during Friday's 14-4 defeat at the hands of the Nationals, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

    Wood never really got it going Friday as he surrendered runs in each of the game's first three innings and departed with the score at a competitive 5-3, but the bullpen imploded to keep him on the hook for the loss. This was the 31-year-old's first poor outing, as the five runs he permitted were more than he allowed in his first three starts combined. He'll look to get back on track during a projected start against St. Louis next week.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Earns second win

    Wood (2-0) allowed two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Saturday against the Nationals.

    Wood began the game with four shutout innings, though he allowed three consecutive hits in the fifth frame -- including a solo home run -- to allow two runs score. Otherwise, he rarely allowed the ball to leave the infield, as he combined to record 12 of his 15 outs via either groundout or strikeout. Wood has been remarkably consistent to begin the season, allowing no more than a pair of earned runs in any of his three starts while also striking out at least five in each appearance. He currently maintains a 2.51 ERA and 1.19 WHIP across 14.1 frames.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Earns first win

    Wood (1-0) allowed four hits and two walks over five scoreless innings Sunday, striking out five and earning a win over Cleveland.

    Wood never found himself in much danger Sunday; only two Guardians reached scoring position and he gave up just one extra-base hit. He tossed 59 of 87 pitches for strikes and forced eight whiffs. The 31-year-old southpaw is now sporting a 1.93 ERA through 9.1 innings. Wood is expected to take the mound in Washington next week.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Goes 4.1 innings in no-decision

    Wood got a no-decision during Monday's 4-2 loss to San Diego, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Wood was able to escape jams in the second and fourth innings while permitting a single run but was removed at 86 pitches following an Austin Nola fifth-inning long ball. The 31-year-old lefty tossed 52 of 86 pitches for strikes and will look to get in the win column against Cleveland on Sunday.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Looking good in spring

    Wood has allowed just two runs on seven hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts in 10 innings across three Cactus League starts.

    Wood allowed his first runs of the spring in Thursday's 13-2 win over the Rockies. The right-hander enjoyed a bounce-back campaign in pitcher-friendly Oracle Park last season, going 10-4 with a 3.83 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 152:39 K:BB across 138.2 innings. He's still more likely to end up toward the back of the Giants' rotation, but he's a solid and budget-friendly source of strikeouts. Regression shouldn't be much of a factor -- his 3.47 FIP last season suggests he was slightly unlucky, and it was in line with his previous work before his two-year slump in 2019 and 2020. Wood should be fine as long as he can avoid injury absences.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Remains a Giant

    Wood and the Giants agreed to a two-year deal worth over $10 million per season Monday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Woods' deal came mere minutes after the Giants locked up Anthony DeSclafani for three more years, as the team is clearly interested in keeping its recent success stories in the fold. Injuries limited Wood to just 48.1 innings over the previous two years, but he was able to make 26 starts in 2021, cruising to a 3.83 ERA. He got to that number via a career-high 26.0 percent strikeout rate and a 50.8 percent groundball rate. Toss in his 6.7 percent walk rate and you get a uniquely well-rounded pitcher. Among pitchers who threw at least 100 innings, only teammate Logan Webb matched or beat Wood in all three rate stats. That bodes well for the veteran lefty moving forward as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Stellar showing in Game 3

    Wood fired 4.2 scoreless frames in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out four.

    Wood didn't factor into the decision, as he was pulled midway through the fifth inning, but it was a stellar showing for the veteran southpaw. The Giants now have a 2-1 series lead, and Wood could work in a similar twice-through-the-order role if the team advances to the NLCS.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: No run support in no-decision

    Wood did not factor in the decision against Arizona on Wednesday despite hurling six scoreless frames during which he allowed three hits and no walks while striking out six.

    The southpaw put together arguably his finest performance of the campaign, finishing with at least six innings and no runs for the first time in his 26 starts. However, Wood had to settle for a no-decision, as San Francisco didn't get on the scoreboard until the seventh frame. Assuming he doesn't pitch again in the regular season, Wood will finish the campaign with a 3.83 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 152:39 K:BB along with a 10-4 record over 138.2 innings. He'll likely be a part of San Francisco's playoff rotation.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Fans seven in four innings

    Wood allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven against Colorado on Friday. He did not factor in the decision.

    The left-hander was making only his second start since Aug. 26, which explains why he was pulled after just 61 pitches. Though he didn't remain in the game long enough to qualify for the win, Wood looked strong in the outing, giving up a pair of first-inning runs but none thereafter. The veteran hurler will continue to build up his pitch count in anticipation of assuming a key role in the playoffs. Wood's final start of the regular season is likely to come at home against Arizona on Thursday.

  • Giants' Alex Wood: Not involved in decision

    Wood did not factor into the decision in Saturday's 2-0 win over Atlanta, throwing three innings while allowing only one baserunner and recording four strikeouts.

    Making his first start since Aug. 26 after a stint on the COVID IL, Wood se down nine of 10 Atlanta batters he faced. The 30-year-old lefty only tossed 37 pitches in his return and will continue to ramp up his workload in preparation for the postseason. Wood is set to start again versus Colorado on Friday.
