      Kyle Wright was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site following his start Friday against the Cubs.Wright pitched well enough in his first start of the year, allowing two runs on three hits in 4.1 innings while striking out five. His control wasn't particularly good, however, as he walked two batters and hit four more. Bryse Wilson was recalled to take his place on the roster.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Whiffs five in no-decision

      Kyle Wright allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings in Friday's win over the Cubs. He didn't factor into the decision.Wright performed well in his season debut Friday, as he only gave up runs in the second and fifth innings prior to his removal. Although he only threw 78 pitches against the Cubs, it was still an encouraging start to the right-hander's season. Wright should receive at least one more turn in the rotation, and he lines up to make his next start at home against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Recalled and starting Friday

      Kyle Wright was recalled from the alternate training site and will start Friday against the Cubs.The 25-year-old missed out on a rotation spot to begin the season but will join the big-league club after spending the last few weeks at the alternate training site. Wright should receive at least a couple turns through the rotation, but he could get a longer look depending how long Drew Smyly (forearm) and Max Fried (hamstring) remain on the injured list.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Denied rotation spot

      Atlanta optioned Kyle Wright to its alternate training site Wednesday.According to Mark Bowman of, Bryse Wilson had clearly moved ahead of Wright for the final spot in Atlanta's Opening Day rotation, so the latter's demotion doesn't come as a major surprise. The 25-year-old right-hander has yet to find much success over parts of three seasons in the majors, posting a cumulative 6.22 ERA and 53:43 K:BB in 63.2 innings.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Remains in rotation hunt

      Kyle Wright has posted a 4.09 ERA and 10:5 K:BB through 11 Grapefruit League innings.The right-hander hasn't been dominant this spring, but he's delivered some solid innings, and perhaps most importantly he hasn't served up a home run after being taken deep seven times in 38 innings last season. Wright is still competing for the No. 5 starter role to begin the season as Atlanta waits for Mike Soroka (Achilles) to prove he's fully healthy, and Bryse Wilson (1.98 ERA, 9:4 K:BB in 13.2 spring innings) is also firmly in the mix for the assignment.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Will start Friday

      Kyle Wright will make his second start of spring training Friday against Minnesota, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Max Fried (COVID-19 protocols) was scratched from the start, so Wright will take the mound in his place. Depending on the status of Mike Soroka (Achilles), Wright could be in the mix for a rotation role to start the season. He struggled in his first spring appearance, allowing four hits and three earned runs while walking one and striking out one across 1.1 frames.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Gets nod for spring opener

      Kyle Wright will start Atlanta's Grapefruit League opener Sunday against the Rays, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.The right-hander is in the mix for a potential vacancy in the team's rotation to begin the season if Mike Soroka (Achilles) isn't quite ready to go for Opening Day. Wright struggled to a 5.21 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 30:24 K:BB through 38 innings last year, but the 25-year-old did close out the 2020 regular season with three straight quality starts and may be ready to take the next step forward in his development.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Fails to escape first inning

      Kyle Wright lasted just two-thirds of an inning at the start of Wednesday's blowout loss to the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS, allowing seven runs on five hits and two walks.Wright allowed the first seven of the playoff-record 11 runs the Dodgers scored in the first inning. He seemed to be settling down after allowing a single and a double to start the game, recording a pair of groundouts, but he proceeded to allow the next five batters to reach base, including back-to-back homers by Joc Pederson and Edwin Rios. While the Atlanta Braves likely didn't anticipate Wright struggling quite this much, they presumably didn't have particularly high expectations for him, as he owns a career 6.22 ERA in 63.2 big-league innings.

      Braves' Kyle Wright: Fans seven in series-clinching win

      Kyle Wright allowed three hits and two walks over six scoreless innings in a win over the Marlins on Thursday in Game 3 of the NLDS. He struck out seven.Wright had to wiggle out of some trouble in the first inning and again in the third. There was not much drama otherwise as Wright kept the Marlins off the scoreboard and the bullpen did the same to complete Atlanta's shutout and clinch a trip to the NLCS. Wright endured some major struggles at the highest level in 2019, but he's been better this season and especially lately as he's avoided shooting himself in the foot with free passes (five walks in his last 19 innings).
