Expect Braves roster move tomorrow. Will likely be UGA product and 2012 draftee Alex Wood at Turner Field up from AA.— Tom Hart (@tom_hart) May 30, 2013
With injuries knocking Atlanta's top two lefty relievers out for the season, it was only going to be a matter of time this year before Alex Wood was called up to Atlanta. The Braves are desperate for bullpen help, and Wood will be nice out of the pen, but I was hoping he was going to get a bit more time in the minors to continue working as a starter. Hopefully this desperation won't hinder any development for Alex and he can resume working next year as a starter, as many people think he'll have a shot at competing for and winning the 5th spot in the Atlanta starting rotation.
