Wright (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. Wright was sidelined for just over a month due to right shoulder bursitis, but the Orioles apparently want him to get more work in the minors before returning to the big leagues after struggling during his rehab outings. The right-hander will likely be one of the first hurlers called up if bullpen depth is needed given his MLB experience this season, although his fantasy upside is limited unless he begins making starts with Baltimore.
Wright (shoulder) will set out on a rehab assignment Monday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. After rehabbing his shoulder for over a month, Wright is ready to return to game action. Once his arm strength is built back up, he figures to be a bullpen option for the Orioles should they feel the need to shuffle their relief corps. However, Wright's lack of success at the major-league level since his initial stint with the Orioles in 2015 implies that he'll need to make marked improvement in order to stick in the bullpen for longer than a few appearances.
Wright (shoulder) has had no setbacks while continuing his throwing program in Sarasota, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. The 27-year-old Oriole managed just six appearances this year before shoulder bursitis clipped his wings. Wright should head off on a rehab assignment soon, but he's still at least a couple weeks from returning to MLB action.
Wright (shoulder) initiated his throwing program Monday at extended spring training, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Wright has been sidelined for about three weeks with right shoulder bursitis, so he'll likely require a rehab assignment once he concludes the throwing program. Before that happens, Wright will need to throw multiple bullpen sessions and face hitters, so a late-July return may be more realistic than expecting him to come off the 10-day disabled list immediately after the All-Star break.
Wright (shoulder) reported to extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla. on Monday to continue his rehab, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Wright landed on the disabled list last Friday after experiencing right shoulder bursitis and looks bound to miss more than the minimum 10 days. The right-hander wasn't pitching particularly well out of the bullpen prior to suffering the injury, conceding seven runs on 11 hits and a walk over 11.1 innings, so it's not a given that he'll stick with the big club once he's activated from the DL.
