It was just one short year ago that Alex Wood was playing baseball at UGA, and last night he made his major league debut with the Atlanta Braves. Wood was a second round pick in the 2012 draft and went to Class A Rome to start his career, before a quick rise through the ranks saw him in the majors last night.
Below are a couple good reads about the lefty's debut, in which he pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the win:
