Orioles' Wesley Wright shut down for week, hopes to return in four


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Orioles pitcher Wesley Wright is on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder issue. He will travel to Sarasota on Wednesday to work on his rehabilitation. 

Wright has been told not to do anything for a week, including picking up a ball, per MASN Sports. He told the Baltimore media that he plans to return in four weeks, instead of six. 

"Hopefully, I can get this taken care of, get back here and be able to help out in the bullpen," he said. "That's my main concern right now. I feel like I kind of let the team down and the boys down not being able to be contributing right now, but just got to get healthy and then I'll be able to show the real me."

"I'm really disappointed. There's a lot at stake over here and we've had a tough week here with usage in the bullpen, so I'd love to be out there helping out, but I need to get healthy. I feel that if I get healthy I'll really be able to contribute and do what I was brought here to do."

Orioles' Wesley Wright to meet with doctors, likely headed to DL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Orioles pitcher Wesley Wright received treatment on his injured left neck/trapezius muscle on Saturday, which feels about the same as it did on Friday, he told reporters, per MASN. He will be examined by a doctor on Saturday, and will likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list, according to MLB.com.

"We're going to try to clear this up with a DL stint," Showalter said. "We haven't really gotten into what's next, MRI or whatever they're going to do yet.

"I thought that's where it would head last night. He came in today and was about the same."

Baltimore could promote knuckleballer Eddie Gamboa to take his roster spot.


Orioles P Wesley Wright injures shoulder


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Orioles pitcher Wesley Wright came out of Friday's 12-5 loss against the Blue Jays with a shoulder injury, according to MLB.com. 

Wright is experiencing left shoulder pain, which could be the result of something going on in the trapezius/neck area. The plan for now is to see how the afflicted area feels on Saturday. 

Wright said he's "pretty concerned" about the injury since he can usually play through some pain. 

“It’s one of those things that’s been kind of bothering me a little bit the last couple days and it got to a point where it wasn’t going away,” Wright said. “You want to be out there at the beginning of the season, you want to do what you can to help the team, but it gets to the point where you’re hurting yourself as well as the team, so I decided it would be best if I said something and get it taken care of.”

Wright pitched 1 1/3 innings and gave up an earned run on two hits.

Looking at the Astros' closer candidates


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/29/2013) The Astros have yet to name a closer to replace Jose Veras, who they traded to the Tigers Monday, and if I had to guess, I'd say they go with a committee to start out. Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields were both mentioned as candidates this spring, and you have to figure Wesley Wright will factor against lefties.

But inevitably, every committee leads to one guy stepping up and claiming the role for himself, and the obvious candidate to do that here is Jose Cisnero. He's a hard-thrower with strikeout-per-inning stuff, and though his 3.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP don't seem like anything special, both are skewed by a particularly ugly outing on May 11 in which he gave up eight hits and six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. Remove it from the equation, and he has a 2.33 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the year.

Still not impressed? Yeah, OK. Well, everyone left in the Astros bullpen has a high ERA and WHIP, which is probably the takeaway here. Though Cisnero is the reliever to target in deep leagues where saves are nowhere to be found on the waiver wire, you probably shouldn't bother with him outside of those leagues.


Who would be next up to close for Houston?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) Our Jon Heyman is reporting Astros closer Jose Veras is drawing considerable trade interest and appears likely to be dealt by the July 31 trade deadline. If that happens, then who closes for Houston?

That's a great question given the state of the team's bullpen. Astros' relievers have combined for the worst bullpen ERA (5.04) in the majors. In fact, Veras has the lowest ERA (3.12) among Houston's relievers. 

In the event of a Veras' trade, the top internal candidates to take over as the team's closer are Jose Cisnero, Wesley Wright, Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields

If you asked me this question in late June, then Cisnero would have been the easy choice. He was a rising arm in Houston's bullpen and gaining the trust of the coaching staff. However, he has struggled lately. He's walked 12 batters in his last 11 2/3 innings and has a 9.95 ERA in his last seven outings.

Fields could be a future MLB closer, but he has a 6.61 ERA. Wright could be more valuable as a lefty specialist and setup man. Also, Wright's name has come up in trade rumors, so he might be on the move as well. Ambriz is second on the team with two saves and has 13 holds, but also has a 5.66 ERA and 1.77 WHIP.

If Houston manager Bo Porter loses Veras, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if he chose a closer-by-committe approach. But if I had to stash one player in Fantasy, then I'd think I'd make it Cisnero since he does have plenty of upside.


Braves looking to acquire left-handed reliever


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2013) The Braves are in the market to trade for a left-handed reliever, according to MLB.com. Cubs reliever James Russell, Brewers reliever Mike Gonzalez and Astros reliever Wesley Wright are among the lefties on general manager Frank Wren's wish list.
