26-year old lefty starting pitcher Travis Wood will be the lone representative for the Cubs at the All-Star Game.  Wood has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Cubs so far this year and he is 5-6 with a 2.69 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP.  Wood has given up 75 hits and 33 walks while whiffing 80 batters in his first 110 1/3 innings in 2013 and those are some outstanding numbers.  Wood deserves this honor and give the Cubs’ front office kudos for stealing him from the Reds a couple of years ago.
