Insight: That will allow Wood to reach 200 innings for the first time in his career. This is disappointing news for fantasy owners counting on one last start from the left-hander, who has gone 9-11 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP this season.

Description: Chicago lefthander Travis Wood was a tough-luck loser Monday versus Cincinnati.
Insight: Wood (8 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 5 K's) pitched well but fell to Mat Latos in an epic pitcher's duel at Wrigley Field. Despite having a losing record, Wood's 3.00 ERA is the lowest of his career and good for 15th-best in the National League.

Insight: Wood has had a tremendous season, posting a 2.79 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP, but he's just 7-7 due to a lack of run support. Five of those wins came over the first two months of the season.

Insight: Wood is 5-4 with a 2.65 ERA and a 3.50 FIP this season. As usual, he has a high flyball rate, but unlike last season he has kept the ball in the park. His HR/FB is just 5.1 percent.

Insight: The home run was Wood's second of the season and the fifth of his career. Meanwhile, on the mound he's gone 5-3 with a career-best 2.75 ERA in 11 starts. It's a good day to be Travis Wood.

7/22/2012 6:10:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Travis Wood has allowed 14 earned runs on 17 hits in 10 2/3 innings over his last two starts.
Insight: Wood won four straight starts from June 19 to July 6 but he's slipped up in his past two outings. The lefty doesn't have much upside and shouldn't be owned outside of the deepest of mixed leagues.
 
Hot7/17/2012 10:18:00 AM
Description: Cubs starter Travis Wood is just 4-3 this season, but he's been very good in his last four outings - all wins.
Insight: In Wood's last four starts, he's got a 1.01 ERA and 0.975 WHIP. He's only faced Miami once in his career with poor results, but that was in April 2011. He's a different pitcher now and on a roll. If you need a replacement starter due to injuries, Wood is a very nice option.
 
7/6/2012 11:44:00 AM
Description: Pitching for the Cubs, starter Travis Wood likely doesn't get a lot of attention, but he's pitched very well lately. Over his last three starts he's 3-0 with a 0.44 ERA and 0.822 WHIP
Insight: Wood (3-3, 3.05 ERA) could be a useful fill in, but will need to improve his SO/9 (6.3) if he wants a full-time fantasy gig.
 
7/1/2012 6:18:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Travis Wood pitched his second straight scoreless outing Sunday to pick up his third straight win.
Insight: Wood (3-3, 3.05 ERA) held Houston scoreless on three hits in 7 2/3 innings Sunday. The left-hander has thrown a quality start in five of his last six turns, including four straight. While it's doubtful he'll maintain this level of success, he's worth an add on the off chance he does keep it up.
 
6/19/2012 11:06:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Travis Wood won his first game with the team Tuesday against the White Sox. Wood allowed one earned run on four hits in six innings while walking four and striking out five.
Insight: Wood (1-3, 4.14) has delivered a solid line in six of his seven starts this season, with the lone exception being a six-run effort against San Diego on May 28. Those with pitching needs can give the lefty a shot, though he won't win many games with the lowly Cubs.
 
5/22/2012 8:30:00 PM
Description: Travis Wood was recalled from Triple-A Iowa and will make his second start of the season Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Wood (0-0, 4.50 ERA) is taking over for Chris Volstad, who lost his place in the rotation after starting the season 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA.
