Apr 24 Wood once again did not get into the lineup on Thursday, marking three nights in a row that he hasn't played since his callup. According to manager Mike Scioscia, this has been by design, the Orange County Register reports.
Recommendation: Scioscia did suggest that Wood might play this weekend, but then again, the Angels will have to make another roster move to call up another pitcher. "We need situational hitting. We need on-base (percentage) to feed the middle of our lineup," Scioscia said when pressed – yet again Wednesday – on his decision to let Wood sit. "There are some things we're trying to bring along that our lineup needs above and beyond just power. Brandon's time is going to come. But right now, we've got some bats we're trying to bring along to get some continuity in our lineup beyond just the power aspect."
Looks like we might get our chance to see him this series, but still sounds meh. I'll be at the games this weekend so it would be a nice surprise to see him live.
