Orioles optioned RHP Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll spend a couple of days down on the farm before returning once rosters expand for September. The 26-year-old right-hander owns a disappointing 5.89 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 50/26 K/BB ratio over 73 1/3 innings with the O's this year.

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright has registered a 5.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 48/26 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings (12 starts, two relief appearances) this season for Baltimore. He is not fantasy relevant, no matter what role he fills.
Aug 24 - 3:28 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright was forced to work several innings of relief on Friday after Ubaldo Jimenez was destroyed, so he was going to be unavailable for the next couple of days. There's a decent chance that he returns to bump Jimenez from the starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break.
Jul 9 - 9:26 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright will provide some length out of the bullpen. He holds a 6.12 ERA in 13 appearances -- 12 starts -- for the Orioles this season.
Jul 8 - 2:49 PM

Mike Wright was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday for Triple-A Norfolk.

While the team has yet to make an official announcement, there's a good chance Wright will be called up to start Friday against the Angels. The Orioles have a roster spot open after optioning Jayson Aquino to Double-A Bowie after Wednesday's 14-inning marathon against the Dodgers. Ubaldo Jimenez is listed as the starter for Friday's series opener but he's pitched very poorly and could be headed back to the bullpen. Wright is only 3-4 with a 6.12 ERA in 13 outings (12 starts) for the Orioles this year.

Orioles optioned RHP Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright was hammered yet again in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays which proved to be the final nail in his coffin. Yovani Gallardo is expected to return from the disabled list soon and should fill his spot in the O's rotation. Wright will continue to provide rotation depth at the minor league level.
Jun 17 - 11:36 PM

Mike Wright was all wrong Friday against the Blue Jays, as he was charged with eight runs in just 3 2/3 innings.

Wright gave up four runs through three innings before he was pulled in the middle of a seven-run fourth inning for Toronto. Ubaldo Jimenez then poured some extra gasoline on the fire. Wright allowed six hits (including three homers) and walked one in the loss and now owns a 6.12 ERA on the year. The Orioles might have to look in another direction soon.
Jun 17 - 10:18 PM

Mike Wright struggled in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon, allowing four runs on six hits over his five frames.

Wright actually departed with a 4-3 lead and in line for his fourth victory, but the O's bullpen would surrender that lead the next inning. It's unclear if Wright, who owns a 5.31 ERA and 1.48 WHIP, will make another start in the Orioles rotation, or if he'll head back to the bullpen.
Jun 11 - 4:16 PM

Mike Wright tossed an unexpected gem Monday, allowing just one unearned run over seven innings in a 4-1 victory over the Royals.

Wright was bumped from the rotation last week but certainly made the most of his spot start Monday. He allowed just five hits and two walks on the night while striking out four in his best performance of the season. It's possible the showing has earned Wright another turn, depending on whether the O's think Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is ready. He could face the Blue Jays in Toronto this weekend.
Jun 6 - 11:13 PM

Mike Wright will make a spot start for the Orioles on Monday against the Royals.

Wright had just been bumped from the starting rotation last week and was recalled to work out of the bullpen, but he'll get another opportunity with the club needing a starter on Monday. He owns a troublesome 5.88 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 36/16 K/BB ratio over 49 innings this season.
Jun 5 - 7:04 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

He was just bumped from the rotation Thursday, but Wright is back a day later with Darren O'Day (hamstring) going down. He'll presumably work in long relief.
Jun 3 - 4:14 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Brian Duensing will take his spot on the 25-man roster. Wright imploded Wednesday against Boston, allowing seven hits and six earned runs over 2 2/3 innings. The right-hander is winless in his last four starts and carries an ugly 5.88 ERA across 49 innings this year. He'll be back in the Orioles' rotation at some point.
Jun 2 - 4:32 PM

Mike Wright gave up four homers and six runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Wright has decent stuff, but he's probably not cut out for pitching in the AL East and Camden Yards; he has allowed 18 homers in 93 1/3 innings as a major leaguer. The Orioles could send him back to Triple-A when Yovani Gallardo comes off the DL.
Jun 1 - 11:25 PM

Mike Wright struggled in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and a pair of walks over 4 2/3 innings.

Wright struck out four on the evening. The O's offense staked him to an early 3-0 lead, but he let the Indians chip away with single runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings to even things up. He'll look to improve upon a disappointing 5.05 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he does battle against the hot-hitting Red Sox on Wednesday.
