Wright may be a candidate to join the rotation Tuesday, though it appears Tyler Wilson may have a leg up on him, MASN Sports reports. Wright has not been successful at the MLB level this season, but he has a 2.10 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in four minor league starts. However, he allowed six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits in five innings at Triple-A on Thursday. Tyler Wilson did not pitch much better on Friday, which leaves the door open for the possibility that Wright earns the promotion.
