Mike Wright was roughed up by the Yankees, giving up five runs in 2/3 of an inning in his start on Sunday.
Wright was very fortunate to get the no decision in this one, as the Yankees teed off on the right-hander in his second start of the season. The 27-year-old has shown moments of competency as a starter, but just doesn't miss enough bats to trust as a fantasy option. You should steer clear of him when he starts against the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday. Apr 8 - 6:07 PM

Mike Wright pitched decently in a no-decision against the Astros on Thursday, allowing three runs on four hits over his five innings of work.

The right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the night while issuing just one free pass. Carlos Correa inflicted most of the damage against him, clubbing a two-run homer in the first inning and adding on a sacrifice fly in the third inning. He'll continue to occupy a spot in the Orioles' rotation, at least until Alex Cobb is up to speed.
Apr 3 - 11:33 PM

Mike Wright was lit up for seven runs -- six earned -- in 4 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Thursday.

Wright is helped by being out of options, but he just isn't making much of a case for a roster spot with his 6.63 ERA in 19 innings this spring. Odds are that he'd clear waivers anyway.
Mar 22 - 6:29 PM

Mike Wright was touched up for four runs in 4 2/3 innings during a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He fell apart late -- after allowing just one run through the first four innings he gave up three more in the fifth frame. He allowed nine hits although only one went for extra bases. Wright pitched exclusively out of the bullpen last year and is hoping to make the transition into the rotation in 2018. He had a 5.76 ERA in 13 appearances a year ago but his 10.08 K/9 was promising.
Mar 17 - 4:44 PM

Mike Wright Jr. pitched a pair of scoreless innings Wednesday in his start versus St. Louis.

Wright is in the mix for one of the two vacancies in the Baltimore rotation (one will likely be filled by Chris Tillman if he has a decent spring). The bullpen is also a possibility. He's out of options after amassing a 5.86 ERA in 21 starts and 22 relief appearances for the Orioles the last three years.

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright will be available out of the O's bullpen for Thursday's make-up game against the Yankees. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 5.11 ERA in seven appearances this season at the major league level.

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.

Orioles optioned RHP Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright only made one appearance during his short stay with the O's. Donnie Hart has been called up from the minors in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

Orioles activated RHP Mike Wright from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.
