The Orioles are expected to call up Mike Wright from Triple-A on Thursday or Friday.

Wright will be up with the O's for sure by Friday, when the club begins a three-game weekend set with the Indians. However, if Wednesday's game against the Yankees is rained out -- very much a possibility -- he would be called up in advance of the expected make-up game on Thursday. The 27-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 5.11 ERA in seven appearances with Baltimore this season.
