Blake Wood opened the season as the Jackets' No. 1 starter but had shin splints that prevented him from running between starts and it appeared to affect his performance. He followed up a 10-1, 3.13 sophomore campaign by going 9-4, 5.02 this spring with 38 walks, 80 strikeouts and a .290 opponent average in 95 innings. Wood doesn't pitch as aggressively as some scouts would like, and his fastball/slider repertoire would play up if he pitched off his fastball and challenged hitters, rather than relying on his slider. His fastball has been clocked between 90-94 mph. He's shown an ability to work it in and out, up and down, and he has some feel for pitching.
