    • Braves' Kyle Wright: Sent to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wright was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday. Wright earned an Opening Day rotation spot but didn't do much with it. In three starts, he recorded a 7.07 ERA with an 11:10 K:BB. He still has plenty of potential, but the Braves have a deep stable of pitching prospects to call on, so they have little reason to stick with one who is currently struggling. One of those prospects, Touki Toussaint, was called up to take his roster spot but may be headed to the bullpen.

    • Braves' Kyle Wright: Hit hard by Mets
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wright (0-2) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs on eight hits and four walks over 3.2 innings while striking out three as Atlanta fell 6-2 to the Mets. Half the hits off the rookie went for extra bases, including a Brandon Nimmo homer in the second inning, and Wright only managed five swinging strikes among his 76 pitches (45 total strikes). With Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) currently targeting a return to the rotation in a week or so, Wright might only get one more start -- at home Wednesday against the Diamondbacks -- before a demotion to the bullpen or Triple-A Gwinnett.

    • Braves' Kyle Wright: Delivers quality start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wright didn't factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out four in a 4-2 loss to the Marlins. The runs scored on solo shots by Jorge Alfaro and Pete O'Brien, but otherwise Wright breezed to a quality start, throwing 46 of 77 pitches for strikes. The rookie right-hander will try again for his first big-league win Thursday, at home against the Mets.

    • Wright (0-1) allowed three runs on two hits and five walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Sunday night. Nerves may have been an issue early on, as Wright handed out three consecutive free passes in the first inning of his very first big-league start. He eventually settled down and was decent the rest of the way outside of a homer and a HBP; two of the three runs charged to Wright crossed the plate after he exited the game. He will look for better results this weekend against the Marlins at home.

    • Wright has made the Braves' rotation and will start next Sunday's series finale against the Phillies. Wright entered spring training trying to earn a spot in the Braves' starting rotation, and he's now set to take the mound during the opening series of the season. The 23-year-old posted a 2.51 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB over 28.2 innings at Triple-A Gwinnett last season before joining the Braves in September.
