Tue Oct 1210:32Alex Wood Pitches Well In NLDS Game 3
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood got the job done in NLDS Game 3's 1-0 win over the Dodgers. With the Giants coming off a loss in Game 2 to tie the series, Wood righted the ship once again, pitching 4 2/3 scoreless innings with two hits, two walks, and four strikeouts on the road. It may not have been the longest start, but it was enough to put the Giants in a position to win. Wood will need to continue to produce clutch performances like this if the Giants hope to extend their playoff run.

Sun Oct 1020:31Alex Wood To Start NLDS Game 3 Monday
San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler announced Sunday that left-hander Alex Wood will start NLDS Game 3 Monday against the Dodgers. Wood will look to get the series back on track with it currently tied at one game apiece. The 30-year-old will look to help the Giants rebound after losing Game 2; of his 13 starts following a loss during the regular season, the Giants went 12-1. Wood also owns a 3.55 playoff ERA in 33 innings and used to pitch his home game at Dodgers Stadium. However, he had a 4.76 ERA in 17 innings pitched against the Dodgers this season. The matchup is a tough one any way you slice it, but the Giants need a strong playoff performance from Wood.

Thu Sep 1617:57Alex Wood Could Return To The Mound On Saturday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood has a "good chance" of being activated from the COVID-19 injured list and making his next start against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday, according to Giants manager Gabe Kapler. Wood has been out since late August after testing positive for COVID-19. He had bad symptoms from the virus, but he has since recovered and tested negative. The Braves are a tough matchup for Wood to return to, so fantasy managers may want to add him for future starts, but keep him on the bench on Saturday, assuming he's able to go. Over 23 starts on the year, Wood has gone 10-4 with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Fri Sep 1013:39Alex Wood Played Catch On Thursday
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood recently played catch while he's working his way back from COVID-19. He tested positive for coronavirus in late August, but is out of quarantine. Wood has missed more than two weeks of action, but it sounds like he'll pitch again this season. He'll need some time to build back up his energy and strength, but should remain an option for the Giants down the stretch. Fantasy managers should stash and hold Wood because it sounds like he'll return soon.

Tue Sep 722:05Alex Wood Progressing Well
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood (COVID-19) has been feeling better as of late after testing positive for COVID-19 and hitting the injured list on August 30. According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the hope is that he'll be able to get some baseball activities in over the weekend. Wood's having a solid year for the surprising Giants, posting a 4.08 ERA with 135 K over 125.2 IP and 23 starts. It's unclear who they will use to fill his spot until he makes a return. Fantasy managers should stash Wood and expect him to make a return to the mound this season.

Tue Aug 3100:39Alex Wood, Johnny Cueto To Injured List Monday
San Francisco Giants starting pitchers Alex Wood (COVID-19) and Johnny Cueto (undisclosed) were both placed on the injured list on Monday, per NBCSports.com's Alex Pavlovic. Wood was put on the IL on Monday after testing positive. Cueto was also feeling under the weather, but manager Gabe Kapler said he has been testing negative. Cueto was supposed to starts Monday's game against the Brewers but could be ready to pitch Tuesday if he feels better. Wood's timetable is not as certain. This is a blow to the Giants and to fantasy managers attempting to make the final push to the fantasy playoffs, but they should have time to pick up some streamers given that the news occurred early in the week. Fantasy managers should keep an eye out for news updates regarding both players.

Fri Aug 2709:58Alex Wood Pitches Well Thursday, Takes No-Decision
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood took a no-decision in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Mets. Wood pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits (including a two-run home run) and two walks with five strikeouts. The 30-year-old has had a nice season overall, going 10-4 with a 4.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 25.3% strikeout rate. His next start will be a tough one at home against the Brewers. Wood's fantasy floor has been pretty consistent this season, but his ceiling has varied at times. As such, it may not be a bad idea to sit him for this upcoming matchup if fantasy managers are in a position to do so.

Sat Aug 2102:03Alex Wood Strikes Out Nine In Loss
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Wood struck out nine Oakland Athletics Friday night, but it wasn't enough to lead the team to victory. Wood allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in five innings in a 4-1 loss. His record drops to 10-4 on the season. Despite a decent overall campaign, with a 4.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 130 strikeouts in 120 1/3 innings this season, Wood has just one quality start in his last seven turns through the rotation, and fantasy managers should be able to find more reliable options.

CLEVELAND (AP) — José Ramírez picked up a pair of RBIs — made possible by Baltimore blunders in the field — and the Cleveland Indians extended the Orioles’ road losing streak to 16 games with a 4-3 victory on Monday night.

Wed Jun 202:33Yankees win on Frazier's homer with two outs in 11th
NEW YORK (AP) — Clint Frazier hit a game-ending, two-run homer with two outs in the 11th inning after making a game-saving catch in the eighth, and the slumping New York Yankees beat the rival Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 Tuesday night. The righty-hitting Frazier turned on a slider from right-hander Andrew Kittredge (5-1) and stood at the plate to admire the drive, capping a tight finish in which both teams came up short on potential rallies. One of those stalled efforts came in the eighth, when Frazier dove and needed every inch of his mitt to catch Joey Wendle’s soft-hit liner to strand two. New York ended a four-game slide and beat Tampa Bay in the Bronx for the second time in 11 tries since the start of last season. The AL East-leading Rays remained 4 1/2 games ahead of the Yankees with two games left in this four-game series. Tampa Bay had held New York to three or fewer runs in seven straight matchups and won nine straight against division foes. ORIOLES 7, TWINS 4 BALTIMORE (AP) — C... [More]
