Braves' Kyle Wright: Top option for depth role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Called up by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

Wright hasn't looked good in four starts for the Braves this season, giving up 18 runs in 16.2 innings while posting a poor 14:13 K:BB. He's fared better in 21 starts for Gwinnett, though his 4.17 ERA and 1.26 WHIP at the Triple-A level aren't exactly elite numbers. It's not clear if he'll get any chances to start down the stretch.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Continues dealing for Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright allowed one run on five hits over six innings while striking out six for Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Sandwiched around a rough spot start for the big club July 18, Wright has been one of the best pitchers in the International League for nearly two months. The right-hander has won six straight decisions and delivered quality starts in seven of his last eight trips to the mound for Gwinnett, posting a 2.13 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 57:10 K:BB through 50.2 innings over that stretch. Control issues have been a problem for the 23-year-old during his brief stints in Atlanta, but this run of success could give him the confidence he needs to stop nibbling and attack hitters the next time he gets the call.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (0-3) was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett following his spot start against the Nationals on Thursday.

With Max Fried (finger) and Kevin Gausman (foot) still on the IL and Mike Foltynewicz trying to find his 2018 form in Triple-A, the Braves needed someone to make a spot start. Wright had struggled in each of his prior three starts, but this one was his worst. He went 2.2 innings while allowing seven runs on seven hits with three walks and three strikeouts. That bumped his ERA up to 9.72 on the year. The Braves figure to get Gausman back Sunday and Fried toward the back end of next week, which means they won't be needing Wright anytime soon unless another injury within the rotation occurs.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Allows seven runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (0-3) allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks across 2.2 innings Thursday' to take the loss against the Nationals. He struck out three.

After an acceptable opening two innings, Wright crumbled in the third, when he allowed seven runs on four hits and three walks before as he was removed with two outs. This shellacking came over three months after his previous MLB outing, in which he allowed six runs in a similar performance. He could get another turn in the rotation, but he'll need to do much better if he wants to stick with the Braves.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Summoned ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett ahead of his scheduled start against the Nationals on Thursday.

As expected, Wright will join the big-league rotation for Thursday's series opener against the Nationals with Max Fried (finger) on the shelf. The 23-year-old Wright struggled during a trio of appearances with the big club earlier in the season -- allowing 11 runs on 15 hits and 10 walks across 14 innings -- but he's been sharp over his last five minor-league starts, compiling a 1.99 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 37:8 K:BB across 31.2 innings for Gwinnett. Bryse Wilson was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Expected to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was scratched from his scheduled turn Wednesday at Triple-A Gwinnett and is expected to be called up to start Thursday's series opener against the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Due to a pair of off days next week, the Braves could have gotten by with a shortened rotation while Max Fried (finger) is on the mend, but Wright will be added to the mix to afford the other starters an extra day of rest. Wright hasn't appeared in the majors since mid-April after serving up 11 runs on 15 hits and 10 walks over 14 innings in his three starts this season. He has looked sharp of late over his last five turns at Gwinnett, posting a 1.99 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 37:8 K:BB across 31.2 innings.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Wright to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Wright's demotion clears a spot on the active roster for Bryse Wilson, who was recalled from Triple-A ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Cubs. The Braves merely brought Wright up earlier this week to provide an extra arm in the bullpen, but he ultimately went unused during his brief stint in the big leagues. Wright will slot back into the rotation at Gwinnett, with whom he's produced a 6.08 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 50.1 innings on the season.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Wright owns a 7.07 ERA in three starts for Atlanta this season and a 6.08 ERA in 11 starts for Gwinnett. The Braves have an opening in the rotation on Thursday, but it would be odd for Wright to be called up just to sit on the bench until then, so he's likely set for a bullpen role. Grant Dayton was optioned in a corresponding move.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett after Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Wright was recalled on Friday after Matt Joyce was placed on the bereavement list, though he didn't appear in any games. He owns a 7.07 ERA and 1.79 WHIP across 14 big-league innings and hasn't fared much better at Triple-A as he's recorded a 7.57 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 27.1 frames.

May 24, 2019 02:16 PM
Braves' Kyle Wright: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was recalled by the Braves on Friday.

Wright has struggled to a 7.07 ERA in three starts for the Braves this season and has an even worse 7.57 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Gwinnett. He appears to be up as long-relief depth this time around, as outfielder Matt Joyce was placed on the bereavement list in a corresponding move, and the Braves have no current holes in their rotation.

May 13, 2019 01:44 PM
Braves' Kyle Wright: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Wright spent five days on the big-league roster but did not get into a game. He could continue to bounce between Atlanta and Gwinnett for much of the season until a regular role opens up at the big-league level.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Officially joins Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

As expected, Wright will join the Braves ahead of Wednesday's series finale against the Dodgers to provide length out of the bullpen after long reliever Josh Tomlin was used for four innings Tuesday. In three starts for the big club earlier in the season, Wright posted a 7.07 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 11:10 K:BB in 14 innings. Grant Dayton was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Set to join Braves on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Wright was originally scheduled to start for the Stripers on Wednesday, but he'll instead join the big-league bullpen to offer length after long reliever Josh Tomlin was called upon for four innings Tuesday. The 23-year-old Wright made three starts for the Braves earlier in the season, struggling to a 7.07 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 11:10 K:BB across 14 innings in those appearances.

April 13, 2019 01:44 PM
Braves' Kyle Wright: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Issues five walks in 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
