Chicago Cubs’ bullpen is taking on a whole new look
Wood is a pretty reliable lefty specialist for the Cubs, and so far this season he’s posted a 2.88 ERA which is the best of his Major League career.
The jack-of-all-trades is one of the better athletes on this Cubs team and has played some left field this season in addition to showing off some ability at the plate, and on the base paths.
Wood’s ability to get outs from big left-handed hitters is valuable for the Cubs, but it’s his ability to come in and pitch multiple innings, giving Joe Maddon a guy who could even pinch hit in a bind late in games that give him his high value to this team.
He doesn’t strike a lot of guys out and he’s given up six home runs this season, but Wood hasn’t lost a game for the Cubs and has been one of the most consistent pieces of the bullpen so far this season.
