Travis Wood was tagged for six runs in 4 2/3 innings by the Dodgers on Monday.
It was Wood's final scheduled start for the year. He concludes it 3-4 with a 6.71 ERA in 11 starts for the Padres. Before that, he had a 6.91 ERA in three starts and 25 relief appearances for the Royals. He's signed at $6.5 million for next year, so he'll almost certainly be back with the Padres to compete for a rotation spot in the spring. Sep 26 - 2:35 AM

Travis Wood allowed just two earned runs, three hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a victory against Arizona on Tuesday.

Wood squared his record at 3-3, winning for the third time in 10 starts since coming over from the Royals in late July. The southpaw still has just two quality starts over his past nine outings and remains a risky fantasy play heading into his next scheduled start on the road against the Dodgers next Monday.
Sep 20 - 1:31 AM

Travis Wood lasted just 2 1/3 innings and gave up nine runs Tuesday in a loss to the Twins.

The Padres could have pulled him after he gave up seven runs in the first two innings, but there was still a chance he'd pull it together, right? Well, no, probably not. They would have been far better off penciling him into the DH spot tonight.
Sep 12 - 11:45 PM

Travis Wood allowed seven runs - six earned - and seven hits with just one walk and one strikeouts across two innings in a loss against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Wood was able to swat a home run, his second of the season, before departing. He has logged just one quality starts over his past seven outings, posting just one victory since his team debut on July 28. The southpaw will look to get untracked on Sunday in Arizona, but he'll be opposite All-Star Robbie Ray and the red-hot Diamondbacks.
Sep 6 - 3:47 AM

Travis Wood pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings and homered Wednesday as the Padres shut out the Giants 5-0.

Wood went without allowing a run despite giving up six hits and four walks. The Padres pulled him with the bases loaded in the fifth, denying him a chance at a win. Still, it was the right move in a 1-0 game. Craig Stammen got out of the jam was credited with a victory after staying in for a scoreless sixth. Wood's homer came in his lone at-bat tonight. It was his 10th in 294 major league at-bats.
Aug 31 - 12:34 AM

Travis Wood was knocked around for five runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

Giancarlo Stanton did all of the damage, including two homers and a two-run double. The southpaw owns a 4.91 ERA over six starts since coming to the Padres in the Trevor Cahill deal. He’s not a fantasy option at this point.
Aug 25 - 10:31 PM

Travis Wood allowed just one run (none earned) on three hits over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

Wood was not missing many bats in this one, striking out two and walking two, but he was able to mostly keep the Nationals at bay nonetheless. His has been a disappointing campaign on the whole -- he entered action on Saturday the owner of a 6.46 ERA between the Royals and Padres -- but he has pitched well in his last two outings, having surrendered just three runs on nine hits in his last 12 innings. He will try to make it three consecutive respectable showings when he takes to the road for a showdown with the Marlins in his next scheduled start.
Aug 19 - 11:52 PM

Travis Wood let in six runs -- five earned -- in five innings to take a loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

He surrendered seven hits and walked four batters, although he did notch seven strikeouts in the sub-par effort. He served up two-run gopherballs to third baseman Eugenio Suarez and back-up catcher Stuart Turner. The veteran left-hander is getting another chance to be a starting pitcher since being traded from the Royals at the deadline in the Trevor Cahill deal. Wood has been atrocious this season -- he has a 6.71 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 57 2/3 innings. He had a 2.95 ERA in 61 innings out of the Cubs' bullpen last year.
Aug 9 - 11:48 PM

Travis Wood struggled in Friday's no-decision against the Pirates, surrendering four runs on six hits over his five-plus frames.

Wood racked up five strikeouts on the night while walking two. He held the Pirates scoreless through the first four innings, but they broke through for a pair of runs in the fifth and tacked on two more while chasing Wood in the sixth. The veteran southpaw will carry a horrifying 6.49 ERA and 1.65 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Reds in Cincinnati.
Aug 5 - 1:17 AM

Making his first start since being traded over to the Padres, Travis Wood surrendered two runs on two hits over six innings in Friday's win over the Pirates.

Wood was shipped over to the Padres from the Royals at the beginning of the week. While he struggled to a 6.91 ERA in 29 appearances over in the American League, he made a nice first impression in Friday's outing, striking out seven and walking one. Outside of a two-run home run surrendered to Andrew McCutchen, Wood kept the scoreboard clean over his six innings of work. He will look for more of the same in a home start against these same Pirates next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 29 - 1:14 AM

Padres acquired LHP Travis Wood from the Royals in the Trevor Cahill trade.

Wood's first and it turns out only season in Kansas City has been a disaster, as he's posted a 6.91 ERA over 29 appearances (three starts). He should slide right into Cahill's vacated rotation spot and hopes to fare better back in the National League.
Jul 24 - 6:47 PM

Travis Wood was hit hard in a no-decision on Sunday, giving up four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 frames against the White Sox.

Wood walked one and struck out four on the afternoon. He started the day strong, with four scoreless innings, but seemed to tire in the fifth where Adam Engel delivered a three-run double and scored on a double by Jose Abreu. If he makes another start in the Royals' rotation it will come on Saturday against the Red Sox in Boston.
Jul 23 - 5:33 PM

Travis Wood surrendered six runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings in his start versus the Tigers on Tuesday.

Wood was making his first appearance since starting and throwing four-plus innings against the Twins on July 2. It's unclear whether he'll get more starts. He had a 6.28 ERA in 25 appearances as a reliever before being shifted into the rotation.
Jul 18 - 11:21 PM

Travis Wood allowed two earned runs, six hits and one walk with three strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Twins.

Wood really labored in his first start of the season, needing 81 pitches to record 12 outs. He is likely headed back to the bullpen for long relief after the spot start, as he was needed due to doubleheaders recently creating a temporary hole in the rotation.
Jul 2 - 11:52 PM

Travis Wood will start on Sunday against the Twins.

That's assuming he's not needed in relief before then. Matt Strahm had been in line to pitch Sunday, but it sounds like he and Wood will be flip-flopping spots, with Strahm headed back to the bullpen. This will be the first start of the season for Wood, who's posted an ugly 6.28 ERA out of the Royals' bullpen.
