Wood has seen time in the rotation and the bullpen this season. The long-term plan is for the left hander to occupy a rotation spot but the Braves had been trying to limit his innings thus far. Already in June and limited to 60 1/3 innings the Braves have been successful thus far.
Mark Bowman reports, that once optioned to the minors, Wood will be stretched out for a return to the rotation.
The #Braves have not officially made a move to activate Walden, but it sounds like Wood will be going to Gwinnett to stretch out

In Wood’s 18 games (7 starts) he holds a 3.43 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He also has a 63/15 K/BB ratio.
