Wright was called up from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday. Wright rejoins the team prior to Thursday's game against the Yankees, following a two-week stay with Norfolk. The 27-year-old will provide more depth out of the bullpen, where he's posted a 5.11 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 15:1 K:BB over 12.1 innings this year.
Wright will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. The Orioles have yet to formally announce the move, but Wright is expected to rejoin the team Thursday in Baltimore. Wright will provide bullpen depth after posting a 5.11 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in seven appearances across several stints in the majors earlier this season.
Wright was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday. Wright tossed a scoreless inning Friday in his lone appearance during his latest stint with the big club. However, with manager Buck Showalter preferring to keep an extra lefty in the bullpen in Donnie Hart (who was recalled in a corresponding move), the right-handed Wright was deemed expendable. It's expected that Wright will rejoin the Orioles when rosters expand Sept. 1 to serve in a long-relief role.
Wright was recalled by Baltimore on Friday. Wright will return to the big leagues after spending the last two months with Triple-A Norfolk. During six appearances in Baltimore this season, Wright has posted a 5.56 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He figures to serve as depth out of the bullpen, and may be deployed as a long reliever moving forward. In a corresponding move, the club placed Dylan Bundy on the bereavement list.
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.
