News: Wood turned in a brilliant performance in Sunday's victory over the Marlins, allowing just five hits while racking up 12 strikeouts across eight scoreless frames. Impact: Wood wrapped up a month of phenomenal work on the mound with possibly the best performance of his young career. Over six starts in August, the 23-year-old southpaw put together an outstanding 1.96 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 across 41.1 innings. Wood is scheduled to face the Marlins once again next weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Wood (9-10) took the loss Tuesday against the Mets, giving up three runs over seven innings while striking out six batters. Impact: Illustrating just how excellent Wood has been lately, the three earned runs were the most he's allowed since July 25, spanning five starts. He probably deserved a better fate Tuesday, but the two-run homer he served up to Juan Lagares proved to be the difference. Wood's rise to prominence in the face of Mike Minor's struggles has been a major reason the Braves have managed to stay on the periphery of the wild card race.(RotoWire, )

News: Wood struck out four and walked one while giving up two runs on four hits over seven innings against the Pirates on Wednesday. Impact: He did not factor in the decision, but the lefty continues to show that he was more than ready to become a regular in the Atlanta rotation this season. He'll face the Mets at Citi Field on Tuesday his next time out, before an August 31 turn against the Marlins.(RotoWire, )
