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.
Sep 20 - 4:20 PM

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.
Sep 19 - 7:19 PM

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.
Sep 18 - 2:33 PM

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.
Sep 13 - 6:51 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.
Sep 4 - 3:03 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.
Jul 31 - 2:22 PM

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.
Jul 20 - 2:45 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.
Jul 14 - 9:25 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.
Jul 9 - 5:36 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.
Jun 29 - 6:12 PM

Alex Wood (elbow) is slated to resume a throwing program next week.

It's a few days earlier than the original plan, as Wood has progressed a bit ahead of schedule. The left-hander said he'll need three weeks of throwing "at the most," before being cleared for game action, so he could rejoin the Dodgers' rotation in mid-July if all goes well.
Jun 17 - 10:47 AM

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 15-day disabled list with left posterior elbow soreness.

Wood began experiencing the discomfort after his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. He'll be examined and likely run through some tests before the Dodgers can come up with a proper recovery timetable. Julio Urias is going to take the vacant rotation spot.
May 31 - 9:08 PM

Alex Wood is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left triceps injury.

Wood apparently suffered the injury near the end of his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. Julio Urias is going to take his spot in the rotation this weekend versus the Braves -- a nice matchup for the young lefty. Wood had registered a decent 3.99 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 62/19 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings (10 starts) this season for Los Angeles.
May 31 - 6:23 PM

Alex Wood is questionable for his next start due to soreness in his left triceps.

Wood woke up with the discomfort Tuesday after lasting just five innings Monday in a loss to the Cubs. He was set up for a juicy weekend matchup against the Braves. There should be an update Wednesday.
