The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated left-handed pitcher Alex Wood from the 10-day disabled list and placed right-handed pitcher John Axford on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right fibula. 

Wood, who missed the last nine games due to left adductor tendonitis, is slated to make his 23rd start of the season tonight against the Giants. The 27-year-old has posted a 7-6 record and 3.58 ERA (49 ER/123.1 IP) in 22 starts for Los Angeles this season. Since the All-Star Break, Wood is 2-1 with a 1.53 ERA (3 ER/17.2 IP) and has limited the opposition to a .161 average in three starts.  

Axford, 35, has appeared in three games with Los Angeles since being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on July 31, allowing six runs over 3.1 innings (16.20 ERA) and striking out four against two walks.
