Wood has struggled to the tune of a 5.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP as a starter this season.

The 25-year-old righty is 0-1 with a 5.15 ERA, but that doesn't tell the whole story. 


MESA, Ariz. — Travis Wood staked his claim to the final spot in the Cubs’ rotation Sunday, firing five scoreless innings against Cincinnati at Sloan Park.
