Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Saturday that Alex Wood will enter spring training as a starting pitcher.
Most swing-type pitchers do work as starters early in the spring rather than having to get stretched out at a later date if they are needed to start. Given the depth of the Dodgers' starting pitching, it would take a couple of injuries in the spring for Wood to have a shot at cracking the Opening Day rotation. Jan 28 - 2:44 PM

Dodgers and LHP Alex Wood avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

It's the first time he's been eligible for arbitration. Wood posted a 3.73 ERA over 14 appearances -- 10 starts -- for the Dodgers last season.

Alex Wood is on the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS against the Cubs.

As previously reported, Enrique Hernandez will also be included on the Dodgers' roster. Charlie Culberson and Austin Barnes were both on the NLDS roster, but they didn't make the cut for this series. Wood finished the regular season in a relief role after returning from an elbow injury and will give Dodgers manager Dave Roberts another lefty option out of the bullpen.

Alex Wood will not be on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS against the Nationals.

Wood finished the regular season in a bullpen role after missing much of the summer with a left elbow injury. Ross Stripling will serve as the Dodgers' primary long reliever. Josh Fields and Luis Avilan also made the NLDS roster over Wood.

Alex Wood made his first appearance as a reliever Wednesday, pitching a perfect inning against the Giants.

Wood will try to win a spot in the postseason bullpen over these next 11 days. His stuff seemed pretty well intact tonight, so it was a very good start for him.

Dodgers activated LHP Alex Wood from the 60-day disabled list.

Wood will join the Los Angeles bullpen on Tuesday night after missing the last three-and-half months with an elbow injury. He underwent a debridement procedure in July. Bud Norris was designated for assignment by the Dodgers to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Alex Wood (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

The original plan was for him to be activated on Monday, but the Dodgers will wait until Tuesday to make an official roster move. Wood has been out since late May due to an elbow debridement procedure.

Alex Wood (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list Monday.

Wood has completed his rehab following an elbow debridement procedure. He'll work out of the Dodgers' bullpen down the stretch.

Alex Wood (elbow) is scheduled to pitch in a simulated game this weekend in Arizona.

Wood is working his way back from an elbow debridement and will try to make himself a long relief option for the Dodgers before the end of the regular season. He hasn't appeared in a major league game since May 30, but the 25-year-old left-hander was sporting a decent 3.99 ERA and 62/19 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings before the injury.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 06:51:00 PM

Alex Wood (elbow) will throw off a mound Monday.

It will be the first time he's done so since having an elbow debridement back in July. The plan is for Wood to throw two bullpen sessions and two live batting practice sessions before being activated later this month if all goes well. He'll return in a relief role.
Sun, Sep 4, 2016 03:03:00 PM

Alex Wood (elbow) will return as a reliever if he makes it back this season.

He underwent an elbow debridement earlier this month and isn't expected to return until well into September. Obviously he wouldn't have much time to be built back up, so it's no surprise that he'd be looked at only as a reliever.

Alex Wood will undergo an elbow debridement Wednesday and miss the next eight weeks.

Wood was facing live hitters and on the verge of beginning a rehab assignment at last check, but now his absence -- which began May 31 -- will extend through at least mid-September. He could be done for the season. It's another major blow to the battered Los Angeles rotation.
Wed, Jul 20, 2016 02:45:00 PM

Alex Wood (elbow) is nearing a rehab assignment.

The left-hander recently advanced to facing live hitters at the team's spring training facility in Arizona. Given how much time he's missed, Wood could be in for a lengthy rehab assignment. Wood is on the 60-day disabled list, which means the earliest he could return is July 30.
Thu, Jul 14, 2016 09:25:00 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Alex Wood (elbow) is "really close" to returning.

He said the same thing about Brett Anderson, who spent the season's first half recovering from back surgery. Wood has thrown a couple bullpen sessions and is nearing a minor league rehab assignment. Left posterior elbow soreness has sidelined the left-hander since late May.
Sat, Jul 9, 2016 05:36:00 PM

Dodgers transferred LHP Alex Wood from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Wood was initially placed on the 15-day disabled list at the end of May due to left posterior elbow soreness. With his transfer over to the 60-day DL, he will not be eligible to return until July 30. Wood has just begun a throwing program and even before the bureaucratic move, was not expected to return to action until around the All-Star Break, at the earliest. That timetable pushes back by a few weeks, now.
