Dodgers News: LHP Alex Wood Returns to Los Angeles on 1-Year Contract (Dodgers Nation)



The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with free agent starting pitcher Alex Wood, who has already passed his physical, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Rosenthal also reports the deal has incentives that can push the total to $10 million.

Wood makes his return to LA after being traded to the Reds with Yasiel Puig last off-season. He was previously with the Dodgers from the second half of 2015 through 2018.

He only pitched 35 2/3 innings in 2019 due to injuries but in 839 career innings, Wood owns a 3.40 ERA, 3.49 FIP, 8.24 K/9 and 2.55 BB/9.

Wood spent this off-season working out at Driveline, specifically with Rob Hill, the Dodgers’ new pitching coordinator.
