The Atlanta Braves are ready to activate Jordan Walden which means someone will be kicked out of the bullpen. The odd man out appears to the Alex Wood.

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.

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.
