Braves' Kyle Wright: Contract selected by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will join the Braves as a September callup after his contract was selected Saturday.

Wright is one of a number of highly-touted prospects in the Braves' system. He has long-term potential as a No 2 starter, though he's likely to pitch in a bullpen role down the stretch. The 22-year-old has a 2.51 ERA in 28.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett following a late-July promotion.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Moved up to Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was called up to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, Jon Heyman of Fancred reports.

Wright had logged a 3.70 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 20 starts for Double-A Mississippi at the time of this promotion. In addition, he posted a 105:43 K:BB with a 0.5 HR/9 through 109.1 innings. The 22-year-old right-hander will get his first taste of action at the Triple-A level in the coming days. Wright employs a mid-90s fastball to go along with a plus curveball and slider. He will take Kolby Allard's spot in the rotation.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Strikes out career-high 13 batters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright gave up four runs (three earned) over 5.2 innings and fanned a career-high 13 batters Tuesday for Double-A Mississippi in its 6-5 loss to Jacksonville.

The punchout total was one shy of the Mississippi record and beat Wright's previous best by five strikeouts. The right-hander now sports a strong 9.2 K/9 for the season, but his control could stand some improvement, as was evident Tuesday. He issued three free passes -- the third time in four starts he has allowed that man walks -- and uncorked a season-high three wild pitches in the outing. Fellow pitching prospects Luiz Gohara and Kolby Allard seem more likely to contribute for the Braves in the second half than Wright, who is trending toward a 2019 promotion to the big club.

Braves' Kyle Wright: To begin 2018 at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will open the season at Double-A Mississippi, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

This is not surprising, as the 22-year-old righty is very advanced and would not have been challenged with a return trip to the Florida State League. While it might be tempting to dream on Wright pitching his way to the majors this season, he is behind four or five other starting pitching prospects in the Braves' system, so he would really need to be lights out at Double-A and Triple-A to force the issue this season. Wright has No. 2 starter upside, and is the best college pitcher from the 2017 draft class for dynasty-league purposes.

Braves' Kyle Wright: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.

Wright has exciting tools in his pitching repertoire, but the 22-year-old doesn't have a whole lot of experience just yet. He'll look to get just that, with a chance to start the season at the Double-A level.
