The Atlanta Braves announced Friday that starting pitcher Kyle Wright underwent successful shoulder surgery on Wednesday, October 11. The procedure was done to repair a torn capsule in his right shoulder. He will likely miss the entire 2024 season.

The right-hander appeared in just nine big league games this season, where he managed a 6.97 ERA. He tossed 31 frames.
Wright missed the majority of the season with shoulder issues dating back to January, shortly before he received a cortisone shot ahead of Spring Training. After five starts, he was shut down again and was unable to return until the end of the regular season. Even then, he still experienced shoulder discomfort, so an MRI last Friday revealed that surgery was necessary.
