Wood (6-3) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Diamondbacks.
After allowing 15 runs in as many innings over his last three starts, Wood turned in his first quality start since May 21. All the damage against him came from Carson Kelly, who knocked an RBI double in the fourth inning and later took Wood deep for a solo shot. The 30-year-old lefty lowered his season ERA to 3.71 and earned his first win since May 16. Wood is projected to face the Phillies at home this weekend.
Wood allowed four earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two across 5.1 innings Tuesday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.
Wood limited the Rangers for much of his start, but he fell apart in the sixth inning to spoil the effort. He began the frame by walking two of the first three batters he faced and was pulled after surrendering a double to bring one runner home. The two inherited runners were also allowed to score. As a result, Wood has now allowed 15 earned runs across his last 15 innings in the span of three starts, inflating his ERA to 3.79 for the season.
Wood was roughed up for seven runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two over 3.2 innings to drop to 5-3 on the season in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Angels.
After a 5-0 start to the campaign, Wood has now dropped three straight decisions, with Tuesday's outing representing his worst of the season. The earned runs and walks totals were his highest of the season, while he failed to reach the fifth inning for the first time in 2021. The lefty's strong overall body of work (3.48 ERA, 1.12 WHIP in nine starts) means that his spot in the rotation likely won't be in jeopardy after the rough showing against the Angels, and Wood lines up for a good bounce-back opportunity against a weak Texas offense early next week in Arlington.
Wood (5-2) lost Thursday's 4-3 match with the Dodgers, allowing four runs and six hits with eight strikeouts in six innings.
Wood was highly efficient on the game, needing only 84 pitches to get through six innings while compiling eight strikeouts, but was plagued by the long ball as three different Dodgers took the 30-year-old lefty deep. He's now lost his last two starts after winning five of his first six although both have been one-run games against Los Angeles.
Wood (5-1) was charged with the loss Friday against the Dodgers, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Wood pitched well despite receiving the first blemish on his record -- the only runs he allowed came as the result of a two-run homer by Chris Taylor in the third inning. The southpaw was otherwise very effective against his former team, notching his fifth quality start in seven appearances this season. Wood has been a great addition to San Francisco's pitching staff, posting a 1.93 ERA and 42:11 K:BB through 42 innings on the campaign. He's lined up to next face the Dodgers again Thursday, this time in Los Angeles.
Wood (5-0) allowed one run on eight hits and a walk while striking out six in six innings to earn the win against the Pirates on Sunday.
Wood's dominant start to the season continued Sunday as he picked up his fifth win in his first six starts. He allowed baserunners in each of his six innings but was able to limit Pittsburgh's run production. The left-hander has posted a 1.75 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 36 innings across his first six starts of the year. Wood tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Dodgers on Friday.
Wood (4-0) allowed one run on four hits and three walks over seven innings Monday, striking out seven and picking up the win over Texas.
Wood was locked into a pitchers' duel with Kyle Gibson until the Giants pulled ahead against the Rangers' bullpen. The 6-foot-4 southpaw threw 65 of 99 pitches for strikes and lowered his season ERA to 1.80 in 30 frames. He's now tossed at least five innings while allowing fewer than three runs in each of his five appearances this season. Wood is lined up to take the mound in Pittsburgh this weekend.
Wood settled for a no-decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies after allowing two runs on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out two batters across five innings.
Wood got off to a solid start, holding the Rockies scoreless until a two-run homer by C.J. Cron in the fourth inning. That would be the only damage of the night against the 30-year-old, who left the game with a lead that was spoiled by Colorado's seventh-inning rally in the second end of Tuesday's twin bill. Wood wasn't quite as dominant as he was in his last start, also against Colorado, when he took a no-hitter into the sixth while fanning a season-high nine batters. Still, he's undefeated on the season (3-0) and has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his starts. The southpaw will carry a shiny 1.96 ERA and 0.78 WHIP into his next projected start against Texas on Monday.
Wood (3-0) earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out nine.
It says a lot that the two runs Wood gave up Wednesday were the most he has yielded in a game this season. Given that fact, it's not surprising that the southpaw has earned a win in each of his three starts. His nine strikeouts against the Rockies marked a season high, and he now owns an impressive 20:3 K:BB across 18 innings. Wood will carry a 1.50 ERA and 0.67 WHIP into his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday in a rematch versus the Rockies, this time in Colorado.
Wood (2-0) pitched seven strong innings en route to his second win of the year while allowing one run on one hit and a walk to go along with seven strikeouts against the Marlins on Friday.
Remarkably, Wood's only hit and run allowed was to lead off the game, as Jazz Chisholm took the left-hander deep to right on the third pitch of the game to give the Marlins an early 1-0 lead. The 30-year-old was nearly perfect moving forward with a fourth-inning walk being his only other blunder on the evening. Wood now owns a 0.75 ERA and an 11:1 K:BB through his first 12 innings of the season and will look to continue his hot start at home against the Rockies on Wednesday.
Wood (1-0) earned the win Sunday against the Marlins after tossing five scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and struck out four.
Wood made his season debut after a back strain kept him sidelined for the first two weeks of the season, and he couldn't have asked for a stronger performance. He allowed back-to-back singles to Miguel Rojas and Starling Marte to start the game, but he settled down afterward and retired 12 batters in a row before Brian Anderson reached on a throwing error by Brandon Belt in the fifth. He also tossed 42 of his 61 pitches for strikes, and after such an encouraging performance, he should not have any restrictions going forward in subsequent starts.
The Giants activated Wood from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Marlins, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.
Wood will be making his season and Giants debut in the series finale in Miami after a back strain kept him sidelined for the first two weeks of the season. Because of the time he missed, Wood's pitch count will likely be monitored carefully Sunday, but he shouldn't face many restrictions in any subsequent starts he receives. While with the Dodgers in 2020, Wood made nine appearances (two starts) and posted a 6.39 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB in 12.2 innings.
Wood (back) will start Sunday's game against the Marlins, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wood made his second rehab start Tuesday, and he'll make his season debut on normal rest for Sunday's series finale against Miami. Wood underwent a minor back procedure in mid-March but allowed just one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two in three innings during two spring starts. Logan Webb will move to a bullpen role with Wood rejoining the starting rotation.
Wood (back) will make his second rehab start at the Giants' alternate site Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wood underwent a minor back procedure in mid-March. It's unclear exactly when he's expected to return, but he'll likely be ready for his season debut fairly soon.
Wood (back) threw in a simulated game Thursday and is progressing well, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Wood had a minor procedure on his back in mid-March and the Giants are currently listing his injury as a lower-back strain. He is at the alternate training site and will likely join the big-league rotation at some point in the coming weeks, assuming there is a spot open for him.
Wood (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wood is slated to miss the first several weeks of the season after he underwent a minor back procedure in mid-March. He's currently working through a throwing program. Aaron Sanchez will serve as San Francisco's fifth starter while Wood is sidelined.
Wood (back) will open the season on the injured list and miss the first couple weeks of the season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wood has missed most of March while recovering from a minor back procedure. He's working his way through a throwing progression but won't be ready for game action until at least mid-April. Aaron Sanchez lines up as the fifth starter in his absence.
Wood (back) threw a bullpen session Saturday, but is likely to begin the season on the injured list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Back troubles, which eventually required a minor surgical procedure, have kept Wood from appearing in game action since March 9. While it's a positive that he's throwing again, it doesn't sound like he'll be ready to pitch in a regular-season game until mid-April at the earliest. Aaron Sanchez will likely begin the season as the fifth starter as a result.
Wood (back) is on the schedule to pitch Saturday against Seattle, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Back troubles, which eventually required a minor surgical procedure, have kept Wood from appearing in game action since March 9. While it's certainly a positive that he's scheduled to pitch again soon, it would be a surprise if he has enough time to get up to speed by Opening Day just five days later. Given Wood's extensive injury history, the Giants have every reason to be cautious with him, though it doesn't look as though he'll miss too much time if he does indeed open on the injured list.
Wood (back) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 30-year-old completed a bullpen session Monday and was expected to progress to live batting practice later this week, but he won't face hitters quite yet. Wood is returning from an ablation procedure in his back and seems unlikely to be ready for the start of the season with only eight days until Opening Day.
