Atlanta Braves news and notes from Friday

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Kansas City Royals William Purnell-USA TODAY Sports

After exiting his start on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, an MRI has revealed that Atlanta Braves righty Kyle Wright has suffered a shoulder strain.

There was no structural damage in Wright’s shoulder, but he will miss a considerable amount of time. There is no timetable for his return.

Wright has been placed on the injured list for the second time this season. His first stint on the injured list came on March 27 with right shoulder soreness. He was placed on the 15-day injured list on Thursday.

The current state of the Braves’ rotation is unknown, but there are a few options in Dylan Dodd, Jared Shuster, and Michael Soroka.
