  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: With team in Philadelphia

    Wright (shoulder) is with Atlanta for the team's doubleheader in Philadelphia on Monday and could be activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of the second game of the twin bill, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The club has yet to name a starter for the second game of the doubleheader after Spencer Strider's (illness) next appearance was pushed back to Wednesday, but all signs point to Wright filling the vacant rotation spot. The 27-year-old's last rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett came Sept. 5, when he threw just 50 pitches over 3.2 innings. If Wright is indeed the starter for Monday's nightcap, he would likely be in store for an abbreviated workload.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Potential option for Monday

    Wright (shoulder) could be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.comreports.

    Spencer Strider's turn through the rotation was pushed back a couple days due to an illness, which could prompt Atlanta to bring back Wright during the twin bill. The 32-year-old made his most recent rehab start Sept. 5 for Triple-A Gwinnett and indicated he needed one more outing in the minors before rejoining the big club, but Strider's ailment could prompt a change of plans. Wright threw just 50 pitches and 3.2 innings during that start, so he won't take on a full workload if activated.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Needs one more rehab start

    Wright (shoulder) said Wednesday that he expects to make at least one more minor-league rehab start, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Wright tallied seven strikeouts and yielded just one hit over 3.2 scoreless innings Tuesday with Triple-A Gwinnett, but he tossed only 50 pitches in that outing and will need to be stretched out a bit more before becoming an option again for Atlanta's rotation. The 27-year-old right-hander has been on the 60-day injured list since early May because of a shoulder strain.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Lacks efficiency in rehab start

    Wright (shoulder) tossed 1.2 innings and struck out one while allowing three runs on three hits and two walks in his rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

    After allowing just one baserunner and recording four strikeouts over three innings in his first rehab outing Aug. 24 with High-A Rome, Wright took a step back in terms of performance while shifting his assignment to Atlanta's top minor-league affiliate. He spotted just 15 of his 31 offerings for strikes, throwing one wild pitch in addition to issuing the two free passes. The right-hander has been on the shelf since early May with a shoulder strain and will probably need at least two more rehab outings to get stretched back out before he's a viable option to rejoin the Atlanta rotation.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Wright (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment from High-A Rome to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    Wright made his first appearance at any level since May 3 this past Thursday with Rome, kicking off his rehab assignment with three scoreless innings while striking out four and allowing just one baserunner. He tossed 26 pitches in that outing and may be looking to push closer to the 40-to-45-pitch range Wednesday. Wright will presumably need at least one or two more rehab outings following Wednesday's start to get stretched back out for a traditional starter's workload before Atlanta is comfortable bringing him back from the 60-day injured list.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Completes first rehab outing

    Wright (shoulder) threw three scoreless innings while allowing one hit and striking out four in a rehab outing with High-A Rome on Thursday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Wright appeared in a game for the first time since May 3 and looked sharp across 26 pitches. He'll likely be in line for a couple more rehab appearances to build up his pitch count and knock off some of the rust, though this was an encouraging first step.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Wright (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Rome, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Wright's right shoulder checked out fine during his recent live batting practice sessions, so he'll advance to the final phase of his recovery program by heading to the minors for what will likely be a multi-start rehab assignment between multiple affiliates. His upcoming outing with Rome will be his first since May 3, so he may be tasked with covering just two or three innings as he begins the buildup process. Barring any setbacks, Wright should be ready to return from the 60-day injured list in early-to-mid-September, but it's unclear if Atlanta will have a rotation spot available for him once he's reinstated.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Throwing live batting practice

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Monday that Wright (shoulder) has advanced to throwing live batting practice, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Wright resumed throwing off a mound in late July and has steadily progressed over the last couple of weeks. The 27-year-old right-hander has been limited to 18.2 major-league innings (five starts) this season because of shoulder issues, but he could be an option again for the NL East leaders around early September if all continues to go well. The next step after a few more live BP sessions would be a minor-league rehab assignment.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Begins mound work

    Wright (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, Mark Bowman of reports.

    It's his first time throwing off a mound since he suffered a right shoulder strain back in early May. Wright remains optimistic an early September return to Atlanta's rotation is possible, but a firm date for his activation won't become clear until he's ready for a rehab assignment.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Not expected before September

    Wright (shoulder) is not expected to be an option for Atlanta until early September, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Sometime in August had been viewed as a rough timetable for the right-hander, but it's going to be a bit longer than that. Wright hasn't had a setback, but the club just wants to be extra cautious as he works his way back from a right shoulder strain. Wright is expected to begin throwing shortened bullpen sessions early next week and then regular bullpen sessions by the end of next week.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Nearing mound work

    Wright (shoulder) is close to being cleared to throw off a mound, Grant McAuley of 92.9 FM The Game reports.

    Wright has been sidelined for two months with a strained right shoulder but has been doing flat-ground throwing for the past month. He figures to need multiple bullpen sessions before facing hitters at least a couple times ahead of an eventual rehab assignment, so there's still plenty of work to be done. There's still no clear timeline for the right-hander to rejoin the Atlanta rotation.
