      Braves' Kyle Wright: Hurt by long ball Saturday

      Kyle Wright (0-2) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks over six innings as Atlanta was downed 5-0 by the Phillies. He struck out three.The young right-hander traded goose eggs with veteran Jake Arrieta until the fourth inning, when Wright served up homers to J.T. Realmuto and Jay Bruce. Wright did throw 91 pitches (59 strikes), but his inability to consistently command his plus raw stuff continues to hold him back in the bigs. He'll look to rein in his 6.75 ERA during his next start, scheduled for Friday in Miami.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Start pushed back

      Kyle Wright will start Saturday's game against the Phillies after Friday's game was rained out.Friday's game was postponed with approximately an hour remaining until the first pitch, so Wright will still be able to start in Saturday's contest. The team had yet to announce a starter for Saturday prior to the postponement. Max Fried will start the first game of a doubleheader Sunday, while Bryse Wilson is a top candidate to start Game 2.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Tosses scoreless no-decision Sunday

      Kyle Wright fired 3.1 scoreless innings in Sunday's win against the Mets but didn't factor into the decision. He allowed five hits and four walks while striking out five.Although Wright didn't allow any Mets to cross the plate Sunday, he struggled with control, which helped contribute to the nine baserunners that he allowed over just 3.1 innings. As a result, he didn't qualify for the win due to the length of his start. The right-hander was slightly more effective Sunday than he was in his season debut, and he'll attempt to build on his momentum on the road Friday against the Phillies.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: First start slated for Tuesday

      Kyle Wright is slated to start Tuesday's game in Tampa Bay.As expected, Wright's inclusion on the pitching schedule confirms that he'll begin the season as the fifth man in the Atlanta rotation. With Cole Hamels (triceps) on the 45-day injured list, Wright should have the opportunity to stick in the rotation for the majority of the season if his performance warrants it. Jhoulys Chacin, Touki Toussaint, Josh Tomlin and Bryse Wilson wait in the wings as potential replacements in the event Wright struggles in his initial starts.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Slow to build up

      Kyle Wright is a little behind the rest of the Atlanta Braves pitchers in summer camp, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.He threw his first live batting practice Sunday and will pitch in an intrasquad game over the next three days. Wright was apparently slow to arrive to camp due to coronavirus testing and travel. Bowman notes that Wright is still poised to either be the No. 5 starter or a piggyback option, perhaps in front of or behind Sean Newcomb or Josh Tomlin. Wright is arguably the most talented starting pitcher of that trio, so if he stays on track, he could serve as a true starter for the bulk of the shortened season.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Back in rotation mix

      Kyle Wright will compete for the final spot in the Atlanta Braves' rotation with Felix Hernandez opting out of the 2020 season, Charles Odum of the Associated Press reports.He seems like the most deserving option, but Wright will have to stave off Sean Newcomb and, to a lesser extent, Bryse Wilson, in the coming weeks. Wright logged a 2.60 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 92:23 K:BB in 79.2 innings over his final 13 starts at Triple-A last season and posted a 2.03 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 15:3 K:BB in 13.1 innings this spring.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Top option for depth role

      Kyle Wright could see consistent usage as part of the Atlanta staff this season if rosters are expanded beyond 26 players, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.The team's No. 3 fantasy prospect, Wright was still competing for the final spot in the rotation when spring training was suspended, but he appeared to be behind Felix Hernandez in the race. The delayed start to the regular season also makes it likely Cole Hamels (shoulder) will be ready, pushing the 24-year-old right-hander further down the depth chart. Wright would be one of the top candidates to handle a long relief or sixth starter role for the team, however, along with Bryse Wilson and Touki Toussaint. Wright has struggled in his brief cups of coffee in the majors but posted a solid 4.17 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 116:35 K:BB in 112.1 innings last year for Triple-A Gwinnett, including a dominant 2.60 ERA and 10.5 K/9 over his final 13 starts.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Hits bump in first spring start

      Kyle Wright gave up two runs on three hits and two walks over 3.1 innings while striking out five in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.Making his first start of the spring after two relief appearances, Wright faced a lineup primarily composed of bench players and minor leaguers and cruised through two scoreless innings before running into trouble in the third. The 24-year-old still has strong numbers through 8.1 innings with a 2.16 ERA and 12:2 K:BB, but with Sean Newcomb and Felix Hernandez also pitching well this spring, Wright may have to begin the season back at Triple-A Gwinnett rather than breaking camp in the big-league rotation.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Dominant start to spring

      Kyle Wright allowed one hit and struck out five over three scoreless innings in Sunday's Grapefruit League game, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "He was really, really good," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said after the game. "When you look at stuff, he was really good. I think he's more versed, he's more ready for this fight than he was a year ago. He's got another year under his belt, experiencing what he's experienced."The 24-year-old right-hander has yet to give up a run through five innings to begin the spring with a 7:0 K:BB. Wright's fast start is a continuation of his impressive run in the second half last year at Triple-A Gwinnett, and the organization's No. 3 fantasy prospect is an early leader in the race to win one of the two open spots in Atlanta's Opening Day rotation.
