Diamondbacks released LHP Wesley Wright.

Wright had a solid 2.16 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings this spring, but it wasn't enough to win a spot in Arizona's bullpen. However, the lefty specialist should draw interest on the open market.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Wesley Wright to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Wright was limited to 11 appearances between the Orioles and Angels in 2015 due to a shoulder injury. The left-hander had a nice run from 2012-2014 and will have a shot at a bullpen job in Arizona if he makes it through the spring fully healthy. Wright, 30, has held left-handed batters to a .237/.313/.334 slash line for his career.

Angels purchased the contract of LHP Wesley Wright from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Wright was released by the Orioles last month after being limited to just two appearances due to a shoulder injury. He held a 1.42 ERA over 12 appearances at Salt Lake and will give the Halos another lefty option in the bullpen.

Angels signed LHP Wesley Wright to a minor league contract.

Orioles released LHP Wesley Wright.

He had been designated for assignment last week. It didn't work out for Wright with the Orioles, as he was limited to just two appearances due to a shoulder injury. If he's healthy, he should be scooped up quickly.

Orioles activated LHP Wesley Wright from the 60-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Wright is over the shoulder ailment that's kept him out for most of the season, but the O's decided they had a better use of a 40-man roster spot. It shouldn't take the southpaw long to find a new home.

Orioles transferred LHP Wesley Wright from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Wesley Wright (shoulder) is expected to need 1-2 more appearances in extended spring training before being activated from the disabled list.

Wright made his first appearance in extended spring on Tuesday. It sounds like he'll avoid a rehab assignment, potentially putting him in line to return next week.

Wesley Wright (shoulder) will appear in an extended spring training game on May 19.

He should be ready for a rehab assignment shortly after that. Out since mid-April with inflammation in his left shoulder, Wright could rejoin the Orioles' bullpen before the end of the month.
Sun, May 3, 2015 12:00:00 PM

Wesley Wright will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed inflammation in his left shoulder.

It's obviously good news that no structural damage was found, as he'll be able to rehab with rest rather than surgery. But, the left-hander will still be on the shelf for a while, with a return probably well into May looking like the best-case scenario.
