The Braves have made a roster move to get Kyle Wright back on the active roster following their Game One win:

The #Braves today returned RHP Kyle Wright from his rehabilitation assignment and reinstated him from the injured list, and optioned LHP Dylan Lee to Triple-A Gwinnett following Game 1 of today’s doubleheader. To make room on the 40-man roster, Atlanta… pic.twitter.com/IdHVY8oFXx
Wright returns from his rehab assignment to a 130 ERA-, 103 FIP-, and 94 xFIP- across five starts spanning 18 2⁄3 innings. He will likely be severely pitch-limited in this game, and is more kicking off a Johnny Wholestaff bullpen effort.
Dylan Lee was a reliable left-handed option for the Braves early in the year, but missed more than three months with shoulder woes. He’s given up a couple of homers in four outings since returning, which ties the number of homers he had given up this season pre-injury but has otherwise done fine for himself. He’ll be back in short order.
Game Two against the Phillies starts at 6:40 pm ET. The Braves can trim their magic number down further, to just two, with a win that delivers a doubleheader sweep.
