There's none of that with Wood. He looks less like "a pitching prospect" than any pitcher I remember watching in Dayton. All he does is string together innings where the other team doesn't score. It will really be interesting to see how he fares as he's pushed forward.
He does kind of ho-hum his way through scoreless innings, but his changeup is definately a plus major league pitch. He made all kinds of hitters look stupid with that pitch in three games that I saw him pitch.
