Update: Wright will go on the Injured List, per manager Brian Snitker (via Justin Toscano of the AJC). A real bummer for the 27-year-old righty, who was delayed in the spring after receiving an injection into the same shoulder. Dylan Dodd will be called up on Thursday to start against Miami and take Wright’s spot on the active roster.
The injury bug appears to have bitten the Atlanta Braves again Wednesday as Kyle Wright left his start against the Miami Marlins in the third inning. Wright allowed back-to-back doubles and a single before a visit by Rick Kranitz who then signaled for the trainer to come out as well. After a long discussion, Wright left the game and was replaced by Collin McHugh.

Wright allowed a single and struck out two in a scoreless first inning. He then sat while the Braves sent 12 men to the plate and scored seven runs. Wright came back out and allowed two runs in a long inning that was aided by an error by Vaughn Grissom. He returned for the third and didn’t retire a batter.
We will pass along more updates as soon as they become available.
UPDATE - The Braves announced that Kyle Wright left Wednesday’s game with right shoulder soreness. That is obviously not good since it was a cortisone shot in his right shoulder that led to his delayed start to the season.
