Giants' Alex Wood: Covers five innings
Wood allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings during Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Diamondbacks. He did not factor into the decision.
Alex Cobb lasted two innings before his hip injury flared up again. Wood was able to provide bulk innings in relief, throwing 47 of 82 pitches for strikes. With the Giants fading in the National League playoff race, Cobb's injury comes at a bad time for the team. Wood may be a candidate to fill the gap in the rotation, either as a traditional starter or bulk reliever -- he's functioned in the latter role often this year. Wood has a 4.60 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 68:39 K:BB through 92 innings over 27 appearances (12 starts) this season. Cobb's spot in the rotation would come up Sunday against the Dodgers, but the Giants' pitching plans are likely to be up in the air until more information on the injury is available.... See More ...

Giants' Alex Wood: Struggles in loss
Wood (5-5) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on five hits and one walk over 2.1 innings against the Cubs while striking out two.
Wood got off to a rough start, allowing four of the first six batters to reach base in the first inning, which led to three runs coming across for Chicago. He got tagged again in the third for another two runs, marking the third time this season in which he's allowed at least five runs. The lefty had not given up an earned run in five straight appearances coming in, which covered a span of 9.1 innings. Wednesday's start was Wood's first since July 21, and he hasn't covered more than four frames in an outing since July 8, so he doesn't offer much fantasy upside even if he sticks in a starting role....

Giants' Alex Wood: Starting Wednesday
Wood will serve as the Giants' starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Wood will be making his 12th start of the season Wednesday but his first since July 21, as his last nine appearances have come as a multi-inning reliever. In his most recent outing out of the bullpen, Wood tossed three scoreless innings and 70 pitches, so he should be able to give San Francisco a decent amount of length as he steps back into a starting role. Even so, the 32-year-old southpaw could still struggle to reach the five innings he would need to qualify for a win, and the Giants could look to deploy him in tandem with Sean Manaea, who hasn't pitched since last Thursday and is capable of covering multiple innings behind Wood....

Giants' Alex Wood: Works in relief again Sunday
Wood gave up two hits and no walks without recording a strikeout across 1.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 4-3 win over Atlanta.
The Giants appear to have officially transitioned Wood to a relief role, as the veteran southpaw has now made each of his last six appearances out of the bullpen. While Wood had been deployed as more of a bulk reliever in a few of those outings, he's made one- and 1.1-inning appearances on the last two occasions. Given that Wood is one of several bullpen options (Jakob Junis, Sean Manaea, Tristan Beck, Ryan Walker and Sean Hjelle) capable of covering multiple frames, expect the Giants to continue to get by with multiple arms on days that traditional starters Logan Webb and Alex Cobb aren't pitching....

Giants' Alex Wood: Mops up four innings
Wood allowed three runs on six hits and struck out three without walking a batter over four innings Saturday versus the Rangers. He did not factor in the decision.
Wood was initially lined up for an appearance versus the Rays on Monday, but starter Alex Cobb struggled Saturday. Wood was able to spare the rest of the Giants' bullpen with the bulk-relief outing, but he'll likely be unavailable until later in the week. Through 19 outings (11 starts), Wood has a 4.92 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 58:33 K:BB over 71.1 innings, with most of his recent work coming in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen. Given that the Giants have just two or three pitchers working as traditional starters at any given time, it remains difficult to predict when other pitchers like Wood will take the mound....

Giants' Alex Wood: Logs four innings
Wood allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Tuesday.
A poor opening assignment from Scott Alexander put the Giants behind early, and they never caught up. Wood was responsible for the pair of runs that helped to put the game out of reach, including Brandon Drury's solo home run in the fifth inning. Wood is now at a 4.81 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 55:33 K:BB through 67.1 innings over 18 appearances (11 starts) this season. He's projected for another outing at home versus the Rays next week....

Giants' Alex Wood: Likely primary pitcher Tuesday
Wood is expected to serve as the Giants' primary pitcher behind opener Scott Alexander in Tuesday's game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Wood has made his last two appearances as a bulk reliever, tossing three scoreless innings July 26 against the Athletics and 2.2 innings of two-run ball July 31 against the Diamondbacks. Considering he'll be available on seven days' rest, Wood should be capable of handling a heavier workload than he did his previous two times out, though the Giants don't necessarily have a need for him to overextend himself with Sean Manaea and Jakob Junis both relatively fresh and available to cover multiple innings themselves, if needed....

Giants' Alex Wood: Fills bulk-relief role
Wood allowed two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.
For his second outing in a row, Wood worked as a de facto piggyback to Jakob Junis, who started the game with three scoreless innings. Wood has completed five innings just three times in nine outings since he returned from a back strain. The Giants have shown little interest in stretching him back out, so it appears his best path to wins will come as a bulk reliever. Wood has a 4.83 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 53:32 K:BB through 63.1 innings over 17 appearances (11 starts) this year.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Snags win Wednesday
Wood (5-4) picked up the win Wednesday over the Athletics, allowing one hit over three scoreless innings. He did not strike out or walk a batter.
Wood was the fourth pitcher in the game, working as a bulk reliever for the fifth time this season. The southpaw got the job done, quieting the Athletics' bats after Jakob Junis gave up three runs in the fourth inning. Wood has alternated wildly between strong and poor outings over the last couple of months, so it's tough to trust him on a week-by-week basis. He's at a 4.75 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 51:30 K:BB through 60.2 innings this season. Assuming he stays on a regular turn, he's lined up for a difficult home outing versus the Diamondbacks next week....

Giants' Alex Wood: Set for bulk-relief role Wednesday
Wood is expected to work as a bulk reliever behind opener Ryan Walker in Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Wood will be making his fifth relief appearance of the season, as he's worked in a traditional starting role on the other 11 occasions that he's taken the hill. Walker has maxed out at three innings over 38 appearances between the majors and minors this season, so he's unlikely to work more than once through the order before turning the game over to Wood. The bulk-relief role should set Wood up better for scooping up the win than if he had been deployed as a starter.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Allows five runs in loss
Wood (4-4) took the loss Friday after surrendering five earned runs on five hits and two walks over four-plus innings versus the Nationals. He tallied only one strikeout.
Wood gave up homers to Lane Thomas and CJ Abrams within the first two innings and then was pulled from the game after yielding a leadoff single to Abrams in the bottom of the fifth. The 32-year-old left-hander has been inconsistent all year and is now showing an overall 4.99 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 11 starts and four relief appearances. He'll aim to rebound against the Athletics in his next turn through the Giants' rotation.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Goes 3.2 innings in no-decision
Wood did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing a run on five hits and three walks over 3.2 innings in an 8-4 win over the Pirates. He struck out one.
Wood needed 67 pitched to make it through just 3.2 innings, though he managed to hold the Pirates to just a single first-inning run while scattering five hits and three walks. The start was Wood's first since June 22, as he's been handling bulk-relief duty for the Giants of late. The 32-year-old southpaw is 4-3 this season with a 4.53 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 50:28 K:BB across 53.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Making start Sunday
Wood will start for the Giants on Sunday in Pittsburgh, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Wood has been up-and-down this season while being used as a starter and bulk reliever, but he did toss five shutout frames in a bulk role his last time out. The left-hander will be making his first start since June 22.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Excels in bulk role
Wood (4-3) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Rockies, allowing three hits and a walk over five scoreless relief innings. He struck out three.
Ryan Walker lasted two innings as the opener and left with the score tied 2-2, but Wood was able to shut down the Colorado offense completely once he took the mound. The veteran southpaw tossed 47 of 72 pitches for strikes as he remained locked in an alternating pattern of great outings and poor ones -- he's flipped between winning and losing in every appearance since May 26, posting a 0.43 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in the four wins but a brutal 15.43 ERA and 2.68 WHIP in the three defeats. Wood has worked behind an opener in his last three trips to the mound, and the Giants might keep him in that bulk relief role until he shows some consistency.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Struggles with command
Wood (3-3) alowed five runs (four earned) on two hits and four walks over 1.2 innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Mets.
Wood came out of the bullpen and immediately ran into trouble after Ross Stripling fired two shutout frames. The Mets plated three runs on Wood in the third inning followed by two more in the fourth. After posting a 2.87 ERA through his first five appearances, his ERA has ballooned up to 6.51 through 45 innings this year. The veteran southpaw has yet to complete six innings in any outing this season and has now made two straight appearances out of the bullpen to follow an opener. As of now, Wood's next outing is lined up to be at home against the Rockies.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Picks up third win
Wood (3-2) earned the win in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Toronto. He allowed five hits while striking out seven over five scoreless innings.
After Ryan Walker pitched a scoreless first inning, Wood held the Blue Jays off the board for five innings while logging a season-high seven strikeouts to earn the win. It was an encouraging effort from the 32-year-old southpaw after he allowed six runs apiece in two of his last three outings. Wood lowered his ERA to 4.57 with a 1.48 WHIP and 43:20 K:BB across 43.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Gets lit up in loss
Wood (2-2) took the loss Thursday, allowing six runs on four hits and four walks over 3.1 innings against the Padres. He struck out two.
The Padres wasted no time in jumping all over the lefty as he issued walks to two of the first three batters he faced before surrendering a three-run shot to Gary Sanchez. Wood allowed another three-run homer to Manny Machado in the third inning and has now allowed six runs in two of his last three starts. This marked Wood's shortest outing since May 12 and his ERA now sits at 5.17 on the season.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Reinstated from IL
Wood (back) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list by the Giants on Saturday
Wood comes off the injured list to make a start against the Dodgers on Saturday. The southpaw spent the minimum time on the IL with his back strain, and he returns to a 4.80 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over 30 innings and eight appearances -- seven of which have been starts.... See More ... See Less
