In a Kevin Goldstein article, ranking his top 15 left-handed starters in the minors. Nothing really new here:

14. Travis Wood, Reds
Age: 19.5 H/9: 7.66 BB/9: 3.63 K/9: 9.24
A second-round pick out of an Arkansas high school last year, Wood's pro debut last year bordered on stunning as he struck out 67 in 49 innings while allowing just 28 hits. Wood has two very good pitches in a 91-94 mph fastball and a plus-plus changeup, but he's also a bit on the small side and extremely raw when it comes to his mechanics and the lack of a useable breaking pitch. The progress he makes with his curveball will define his future role, and his development will require patience.
