Braves News: Kyle Wright to IL, City Connect Jersey Reveal, More

One Day Closer to Opening Day.

MLB: NLDS-Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves announced on Monday that starter Kyle Wright would be placed on the 15-day IL as he continues to ramp up his stamina to normal levels. The move was expected from the roster decisions and annoucnements that were made on Sunday, so this is not a result of any setbacks or new injuries. The Braves are simply remaining cautious with their pitching staff to begin the season.

The hope is that Kyle Wright will be ready at some point in early too mid April to rejoin the starting rotation. Wright’s health and performance this year will be something to watch for the Atlanta rotation, as he provides key depth and effectiveness as a third or fourth starter. Hopefully, he will continue to improve with time and rejoin the rotation over the next few weeks.
