Royals' Kyle Wright: Placed on 60-day IL
The Royals placed Wright (shoulder) on the 60-day injured list Saturday.
Wright is set to miss the entire 2024 campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery in October, so it was only a matter of time before he landed on the IL. Wright's spot on the 40-man roster will be given to John Schreiber, who was acquired from the Red Sox on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Kyle Wright: Agrees to terms
Wright (shoulder) agreed to a one-year contract with the Royals on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Wright, who will miss the entire 2024 season after undergoing shoulder surgery, was traded from Atlanta to Kansas City earlier this offseason for Jackson Kowar. If he can make a full recovery, Wright could pitch near the top of the Royals' rotation in 2025.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Kyle Wright: Traded to Kansas City
Kansas City acquired Wright (shoulder) from Atlanta on Friday in exchange for Jackson Kowar, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Wright has already been ruled out for the entire 2024 season after requiring surgery last month to repair a torn capsule in his right shoulder. He won 21 games in 2022, though, and makes sense as a reclamation project for a Royals team that is hoping to eventually shift out of rebuilding mode.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Undergoes surgery
Wright underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn capsule in his right shoulder.
Wright will miss the entire 2024 campaign as he recovers from the procedure. He strained his shoulder multiple times this season and posted an ugly 6.97 ERA and 1.84 WHIP through 31 innings when he was healthy -- a sharp decline from his 3.19 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Likely out for 2024
Wright is expected to undergo shoulder surgery that will cause him to miss the entire 2024 season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Wright landed on the 60-day IL on Friday with a right shoulder strain. Considering he already suffered the same injury earlier this season, he'll now go under the knife to address the issue directly and look forward to a likely return in 2025. Wright had a 3.19 ERA in 2022 but wasn't very effective when healthy this year, posting a 6.97 ERA and 1.84 WHIP alongside a 34:17 K:BB through 31 innings.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Out for postseason
Atlanta placed Wright on the 60-day injured list Saturday with a right shoulder strain, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Wright was confirmed to be left off Atlanta's NLDS roster Friday, and his move to the 60-day IL will officially keep him unavailable for the entire postseason. Wright missed more than four months of the season due to a strained right shoulder, and he'll now focus on making it back for the start of next year.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Not on NLDS roster
Wright will not be on the roster for Atlanta's NLDS matchup against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Wright registered an ugly 6.97 ERA over 31 innings when healthy this year and was shifted to the bullpen toward the end of the regular season. There is no spot for him -- either in the rotation or bullpen -- as the NL East champions roll into their best-of-five National League Division Series versus Philly.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Shifting to bullpen
Wright will be available out of the bullpen beginning with Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Wright struggled in two starts since being activated from the 60-day injured list with 10 runs allowed over seven innings, so he'll receive a look out of the bullpen in anticipation of potentially filling that role in the playoffs. The right-hander was a key rotation piece for Atlanta last season with a 3.19 ERA in 30 starts, but he has a 7.71 ERA in seven outings this year while missing most of the campaign with a shoulder strain....

Braves' Kyle Wright: Atlanta-Washington postponed Saturday
Wright will not start Saturday at Washington after the game was postponed due to severe weather.
Saturday's game will be pushed into a split doubleheader Sunday and Wright should get the call in one of those two tilts. He has allowed 10 earned runs in six innings (two starts) since returning Sept. 11 from a multi-month absence for a shoulder strain, but the 27-year-old can look to find a groove against a Nationals team that struggles badly versus right-handed pitching....

Braves' Kyle Wright: Gives up three homers
Wright (0-3) allowed four runs on five hits and four walks over four innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Phillies.
Wright was tagged with three home runs in the short outing, including Johan Rojas' two-run shot in the second inning. Wright has coughed up 10 runs in seven innings since returning from the injured list the month. He now owns a 7.71 ERA through 25.2 frames on the year. Wright is currently projected to start in Washington this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Struggles in return
Wright (0-2) took the loss Monday, allowing six runs on six hits and two walks over three innings in a 7-5 loss to the Phillies. He struck out three.
It was a tough night for Wright, who was tagged for four runs in the opening inning en route to a loss in his first start since May 3. The 27-year-old Wright needed 62 pitches to make it through just three innings, though he was likely on a pitch count anyway after missing over four months with a shoulder strain. Wright now sports a 7.48 ERA with a 1.89 WHIP and 23:12 K:BB through six starts (21.2 innings) this season. He'll look to get on track in his next start, currently lined up for this weekend in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Kyle Wright: Draws start for Game 2 of twin bill
Atlanta reinstated Wright (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list and will have the right-hander start the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
As anticipated, Wright will rejoin Atlanta to make his sixth start of the season and his first since May 3 after an extended absence due to a right shoulder strain. Wright made three rehab starts in the minors prior to being activated and looked sharp his last time out last Tuesday at Triple-A Gwinnett, striking out seven while giving up one hit and two walks over 3.2 scoreless innings. Since he tossed just 50 pitches in that start, Wright's workload will likely be restricted Monday.... See More ... See Less
