2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The lefty with the Tazmanian delivery was shelved for much of last season, as arm woes disabled him in early June and in-season elbow surgery took him out until mid-September. His pitching motion is a site to behold, with his head veering every direction throughout the course of his delivery, and it's somewhat amazing that he can hit spots at all with such a blatant imbalance in his mechanics. It's even more shocking that he can maintain something approaching a league-average walk rate with that shaky delivery, but Wood has stayed within spitting distance of 3.0 BB/9 in each of the past three seasons. Wood will be one of a dozen contenders for a spot in back of the Dodgers' rotation in the spring, though his combination of bullpen experience, recent health issues and the leftward-leaning starting staff of the Dodgers could very well conspire to keep him in the bullpen.

2016

Wood came over from the Braves to the Dodgers in a July blockbuster that also involved Jose Peraza and Hector Olivera. He ultimately notched career highs in starts (32), innings (189.2), and wins (12). That said, 2015 represented a bit of a step back over his 2014 season, as Wood's ERA rose from 2.78 to 3.84 and his WHIP shot from 1.14 to 1.36. Wood also saw his strikeout rate drop sharply - 6.6 K/9 vs. 2014's 2.8. Wood does a good job limiting free passes (2.8 BB/9) and he generates about two groundballs per flyball, helping offset a below average fastball (89.1 mph on average). Of his final five starts last year, Wood allowed 14 total runs in two of them and just four combined in the other three. Wood should have a role in the back end of the Dodgers' 2016 rotation where he'll look to improve his consistency and develop more of an "out pitch" against right-hand hitters who batted .292 against him last year.

2015

Gavin Floyd's return in early May afforded the Braves the option of moving Wood to the bullpen, and they took advantage, seeing it as a perfect opportunity to manage the lefty's innings. Following a brief assignment to the minors to get stretched out, Wood returned to the rotation June 25 and went on to post a 2.20 ERA and .227 BAA in 13 second-half starts. He cut down on his walks while maintaining a strikeout rate of 8.9 K/9 and lowered his ERA by more than 30 points despite his HR/FB nearly doubling (from 5.1% to 10.0%). Wood used his plus curveball far more often to great results and mixed in his changeup effectively, with his stuff proving equally difficult on lefties (.667 OPS) and righties (.645), providing hope that he can sustain a good deal of success at the major league level despite a fastball that averages under 90 mph. Along with Julio Teheran, Wood will form one of the youngest 1-2 punches in the league, but any innings restrictions will likely lifted and he already has an impressive major-league track record for a 24-year-old.

2014

The Braves were looking for a way to work Wood into the rotation in late July, after the left-hander posted a 1.26 ERA, a 9.0 K/9 and a 3.6 BB/9 over 12 starts with Double-A Mississippi and a 2.45 ERA in 16 appearances with the big club to begin the year. Injuries to Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm opened the door, and Wood went on to go 3-2 with a 3.54 ERA and a 8.7 K/9 in 11 starts with Atlanta. Eventually, Wood transitioned back to a bullpen role, but the 23-year-old will compete for a rotation spot this spring, and considering how well he performed last season, he likely has an edge over the likes of David Hale and J.R. Graham.
