Braves | Alex Wood unsure of role

The Atlanta Braves have yet to tell SP Alex Wood if he'll be a starter or reliever to begin the season. Wood went 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in five August starts last year but was then shifted to the bullpen. SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) is expected to return to the team in May after recovering from Tommy John surgery, and the team should only have one open spot in the rotation with SP Freddy Garcia competing for the spot, as well. The Braves only have one left-handed reliever in RP Luis Avilan, until RP Jonny Venters (elbow) returns from the disabled list in May or June.
