Giants' Alex Wood: Moves to 60-day IL
Wood (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.
Wood's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural, as the southpaw was ruled out for the remainder of the season in mid-September. The transaction helps make room on the 40-man roster for Andrew Vasquez, whose contract was selected Monday.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Shut down for season
Wood (shoulder) wasn't cleared to resume throwing this weekend and was shut down for the season Sunday by the Giants, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The left-hander has been sidelined with a shoulder impingement since the start of September, and he won't be able to rejoin the active roster during the final weeks of the season. Wood will finish the campaign with a 5.10 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 131:30 K:BB across 130.2 innings. He's under contract for 2023 at $12.5 million, which is the final year of his deal.... See More ...

Giants' Alex Wood: Set to throw over weekend
Wood (shoulder) is scheduled to resume throwing this weekend, and he expects to come to a decision with the Giants about whether he'll pitch again this season based on how he fares during the session, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Since the Giants are effectively out of the running for a playoff spot and Wood has a sketchy track record on the health front, he's not eager to push for a return in 2022 unless he's completely certain that he won't be at risk of aggravating the left shoulder impingement that landed him on the 15-day injured list Sept. 3. Even if Wood feels comfortable coming off the IL before the season ends in the first week of October, he could be limited to a bullpen role.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Improving but still being evaluated
Wood (shoulder) is improving but is still being evaluated, with his expected return date not yet clear, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Wood hit the injured list with a left shoulder impingement in early September but has yet to be shut down for the year. Even with the Giants all but eliminated from postseason contention, it looks as though he has a shot to make it back for at least a start or two late in the year, though that's not guaranteed. The team is expected to go with a bullpen game when his turn comes up Sunday against the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Out with shoulder impingement
Wood was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left shoulder impingement Saturday.
Wood has been dealing with the issue for a while, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports, which may explain his 13.86 ERA over his last three starts. The move was made retroactive to Thursday, so Wood will be eligible to return Sept. 16, but the Giants haven't decided whether or not to shut him down for the season. The team has been all but eliminated from playoff contention, as it sits 10 games back of the sixth seed, so Wood may simply start his offseason early in an effort to be as healthy as possible heading into next season....

Giants' Alex Wood: Surrenders four runs
Wood (8-12) allowed four earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five across 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Padres.
Wood retired the first nine batters he faced, but he struggled from there to turn in a poor outing. The effort was another in a string of poor results for Wood, as he owns an 8.40 ERA across his last six starts. Despite that, he has maintained a 31:5 K:BB in the same span -- offering hope his surface stats will improve. For the season, Wood has a 5.10 ERA with 131:30 K:BB across 130.2 frames.... See More ...

Giants' Alex Wood: Punished for eight runs
Wood (8-11) gave up eight earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out four over three innings to take the loss in a 9-0 defeat against the Twins on Friday.
Wood's painful month of August got worse with another miserable outing, which saw him lit up for two home runs and chased after getting only nine outs on 60 pitches. Wood now has an ERA of 8.53 in August and has given up six or more runs in three of his five appearances this month. The silver lining is that Wood doesn't walk many batters and his underlying metrics suggest that he is pitching better than his results. Wood has a 3.71 xERA and a 3.43 xFIP despite an ERA of 5.00 in 126 innings pitched this season. He is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Lit up in loss
Wood (8-10) gave up seven earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings to take the loss in a 7-4 defeat against the Rockies on Friday.
Wood was pounded for seven runs in his road start at Coors Field to take his 10th loss of the season. Most the damage came on a pair of home runs by rookie Elehuris Montero, who picked up five RBI on the night. The three long balls that Wood surrendered were the most that he had given up in a game all season. Wood's 1.22 WHIP is right in line with his career average and he will look to bounce back from his worst start of the year his next time out in what is tentatively expected to be a road matchup against the Twins....

Giants' Alex Wood: Strikes out nine in quality start
Wood didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 8-7 win against the Pirates, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk with nine strikeouts in six innings.
Wood was staked to an early 5-0 lead and submitted four scoreless frames before surrendering three runs on three baserunners in the fifth. Pittsburgh would go on to mount a comeback against San Francisco's bullpen, erasing the 31-year-old from the decision despite a second-straight quality start. Wood induced an impressive 19 swinging strikes on 101 pitches en route to a season-high nine strikeouts and his 9.05 K/9 ranks 16th in MLB. He carries a 4.18 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start, slated for next weekend in Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Picks up win in scoreless outing
Wood (8-9) yielded three hits over 6.1 shutout innings, striking out five and earning a win over the Padres on Monday.
Wood coughed up just three singles and, at one point, he retired nine consecutive batters. It was a promising start after the Dodgers piled six runs on him in his last outing. Wood lowered his ERA to 4.17 alongside a 110:26 K:BB through 22 starts. He's projected to face the Pirates at home this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Done in by second inning
Wood (7-9) took the loss during Tuesday's 9-5 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing six runs on nine hits and one walk with six strikeouts in 5.1 innings.
Wood bookended his outing with clean frames, but the middle was messy -- four runs on five baserunners in the second and additional runs in each of the next two innings. The rough start to August comes on the heels of a superb July that featured a 1.65 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 27.1 innings across five turns, and the 31-year-old struck out at least six batters for the fourth time in five starts. Wood carries a 4.42 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into his next start, tentatively scheduled for Monday against the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Holds on for win
Wood (7-8) allowed two runs on two hits, two walks and a hit batsman while striking out three in 6.2 innings to earn the win Thursday over the Cubs.
Wood put two runners on base in the first inning but went unscathed and carried a no-hitter in the seventh inning. He allowed a single to Ian Happ and a two-run home run to Patrick Wisdom, but that was all the scoring the Cubs mustered as Wood snapped the Giants' seven-game losing streak. The southpaw has had some uneven performances lately and ends July with eight runs allowed (five earned) in 27.1 innings across five starts. For the season, he's pitched to a 4.11 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 99:25 K:BB in 100.2 innings in 20 outings. He's tentatively projected for a home start versus the Dodgers next week.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Labors through four innings
Wood (6-8) took the loss Saturday versus the Dodgers. He allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts in four-plus innings.
Wood needed 97 pitches (63 strikes) to complete his four frames, and he was relieved by Yunior Marte after issuing a leadoff walk to Gavin Lux in the fifth. Both runs against Wood came on solo home runs by Mookie Betts and Trea Turner in the third inning. In his last four outings, Wood has completed five innings only twice, though he's racked up 25 strikeouts across 20.2 innings in that span. The southpaw owns a 4.21 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 96:23 K:BB across 94 innings. He's projected for a favorable home start versus the Cubs next week.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Alex Wood: Escapes with no-decision
Wood allowed three unearned runs on four hits and struck out seven in 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Brewers on Friday.
The Brewers rallied for five runs in the fifth inning, with Wood responsible for three of them, including two runners that Tyler Rogers inherited but couldn't keep from scoring. In his last three starts, Wood has allowed four runs (one earned) in 16.2 innings while racking up 19 strikeouts. He's at a 4.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 90:21 K:BB across 90 innings in 18 starts this year.... See More ... See Less
