Orioles' Mike Wright looks good in first rehab start Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/27/2015) Orioles pitcher Mike Wright began his rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday. The rookie right-hander went four innings, allowing one run on two hits. He walked two and struck out one, throwing 31 of his 51 pitches for strikes.

Wright has been out of action since the middle of July due to an oblique injury. It is not yet clear when the Orioles expect Wright to return to the team, nor what his role will be once he returns.

Orioles place P Mike Wright on DL, promote P Jorge Rondon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) The Orioles have announced that they have promoted Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk and placed fellow right-hander Mike Wright on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain.

Rondon has had two regrettable major league performances this season, allowing 10 earned runs on eight hits in one inning. But he is 2-1 with a fine 1.91 ERA in the minors.

Wright had been called up Friday, but left the game that night with the injury.


Orioles' Mike Wright called up on Friday, leaves game with cramp


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Orioles pitcher Mike Wright , who was called up from Triple-A on Friday, left the game with a left calf cramp. Wright came into the game against the Tigers in the fourth inning after starter Wei-Yin Chen struggled.

Wright got out of the fourth, but was pulled with one out in the fifth due to the injury. It is not yet known when Wright is expected to make his next appearance for the Orioles.


Orioles demote pitchers Mike Wright, Tyler Wilson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Either the Orioles prefer players whose last names start with the letter "g" over those that begin them with the letter "w" or they simply made moves Saturday to benefit the team.

It is assumed to be the latter.

Baltimore promoted Kevin Gausman and Mychal Givens while optioning fellow pitchers Mike Wright and Tyler Wilson.

Wright lost his mojo after two excellent starts. He allowed 17 runs on 23 hits and eight walks in 13 1/3 innings over his last four outings and was knocked out in the second Friday night. He is departing with a 5.16 ERA.

Wilson, who is leaving less than a week after his promotion, fared far better. He yielded just four runs in 17 innings over five appearances, including one quality start.


Orioles' Mike Wright loses third straight


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) Orioles starter Mike Wright lost his third straight game in as many starts, Friday against Toronto. 

Wright gave up four runs on three hits and four walks in 1 1/3 innings. He's given up 17 runs over the last 15 1/3 innings, spanning four starts. 

"It was tough. I feel like my last three outings have been a battle," said Wright. "I really don't know what's going on, but I don't walk this many people. I've got to figure some stuff out to give my team a chance."

Wright dropped to 2-3 on the season. His next start is Thursday at Boston. 


Orioles SP Mike Wright allows five runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/14/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Mike Wright got rocked for five runs against the Yankees on Sunday.

Wright picked up his second loss of the season after throwing four innings and allowing five earned runs. 

"He'll tell you that the command was a little bit off after that, but they did a good job like the Yankees always do of grinding pitchers and a lot of foul balls, then they put the ball in play and find the hole. You'd think a day like today you'd see some balls flying out of the ballpark. It's not like they beat him around. Obviously, they hit a couple balls hard, too. But we didn't mount much offensively," said manager Buck Showalter.

He walked three batters and allowed six hits, and only managed to strike out two batters. 

"It [stinks] whenever you walk three people," Wright said. "I was throwing some good pitches and they kept fouling them off and kept battling. They ended up having the upper hand."

Wright (2-2) has a 4.13 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings of work this season.


Orioles SP Mike Wright will start Sunday vs. Yankees


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed that Mike Wright will start on Sunday against the Yankees, according to MASNSports.com. Wright is starting in place of Miguel Gonzalez, who was placed on the disabled list on Thursday. Wright has not faced the Yankees yet this season.

Mike Wright back with Orioles, candidate to start Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) With Miguel Gonzalez being placed on the disabled list Thursday, the Orioles recalled pitcher Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright is a candidate to replace Gonzalez in the rotation and start Sunday against the Yankees. However, he will be available out of the bullpen, beginning Thursday against the Red Sox.

Wright is 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA in four starts for Baltimore.


Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez won't start Sunday, might go on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez will not make his next start Sunday against the Yankees due to a groin injury he suffered Tuesday, manager Buck Showalter told reporters Wednesday. Showalter indicated Gonzalez could be a candidate to go on the disabled list.

Showalter also mentioned Mike Wright and Tyler Wilson as options to start Sunday in place of Gonzalez.


Orioles make flurry of roster moves Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Among the flurry of moves made Friday by the Orioles were the promotion of infielder Rey Navarro and left-handed reliever Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Norfolk and the demotion of catcher Steve Clevenger and pitcher Mike Wright to the same team.

The 26-year-old Cabral has been lights-out this season with a 0.00 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings of relief. Left-handed hitters are batting just .120 against him.

Wright has certainly not been sent down due to performance. He pitched shutout ball in his first two starts and stands at 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA.


Orioles' Mike Wright suffers first career loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Orioles right-hander Mike Wright dropped his first decision of his career on Tuesday against Houston.

Wright (2-1) allowed five runs in the third, including back-to-back homers from Evan Gattis and Luis Valbuena. He was charged with five earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings of a 6-4 defeat.

Wright has allowed eight earned runs over his last two outings, after starting the year with 14 1/3 scoreless frames. He owns a 2.96 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP and 16:4 K:BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings pitched. His next start will come Sunday at Cleveland.


Orioles SP Mike Wright merely mediocre, but snags second win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Orioles right-hander Mike Wright did not perform Thursday to the level he achieved in his first two starts, but that would have been virtually impossible. He had not allowed a run in two starts going in.

He pitched well enough in his latest outing to raise his record to 2-0, holding the White Sox to three runs on six hits in five innings in the second game of a doubleheader. He walked none and fanned two.

Wright was plagued by the long ball. He began the game by yielding a home run to Adam Eaton and gave up a two-run shot to Adam LaRoche in the third.

"There were some pitches I missed (with location)," Wright said, per MASNSports.com. "First batter of the game I missed up and away. Lucky enough to get through five and we got the win, so that was good."

The runs he allowed were the first in three starts. He will try to keep up the good work next Tuesday in Houston.


Orioles pitcher Mike Wright strikes out four in no-decision on Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Orioles pitcher Mike Wright tossed seven scoreless innings on Saturday, allowing three hits in Baltimore's 1-0 loss to the Marlins in 13 innings, but did not factor into the decision.

Wright faced the minimum hitters through four innings, but ran into some issues in the fifth. After hitting leadoff man Martin Prado, Wright picked up two quick outs. Then after a walk put two men on, Wright forced a groundout to end the inning.

Wright, who remains 1-0, maintained his perfect 0.00 ERA in 14 1/3 innings of work.

"It's special. He got his first base hit tonight," manager Buck Showalter said to MASN Sports. "He'll probably like that more. So proud of him and Oliver. I know you all get tired of me talking about those guys, what's going on down there, but we're getting to see a reflection of it. We were short in the bullpen and those guys gave us meaningful (innings). ... To think we were going to get that out of them. Sleep fast and see if we've got enough people to get through tomorrow."

He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the White Sox.


Orioles' Mike Wright wins major-league debut Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Orioles pitcher Mike Wright earned a win in his major-league debut on Sunday, giving up four hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out six and walking none in his team's 3-0 victory over the Angels.

Wright baffled the Angels in his start, with his lone extra-base hit allowed coming on a double by Albert Pujols. He threw 59 of his 90 pitches for strikes in the win.

"That is everything you dream of. Really fun. I was a little nervous that first inning, but tried to enjoy it," he said to MASN Sports.

"At times, I had everything working. But as a whole, my slider wasn't there but felt good all together. I felt amazing and 100 percent having that much rest."

Wright was called up with Bud Norris (illness) and Chris Tillman (back) unable to pitch. His performance could make the Orioles consider keeping him on the active roster.


Orioles RHP Mike Wright to make MLB debut, start Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Orioles right-hander Mike Wright will make his Major League debut and start on Sunday against the Angels. Wright was called up on from Triple-A on Wednesday, but has not made an appearance for the Orioles.

He made six starts for Norfolk this season, going 3-0 with a 2.64 ERA and a 30:9 K:BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. He will get the start on Sunday in favor of Bud Norris (illness) and Chris Tillman (back) who each scratched from their scheduled starts.

The Orioles selected Wright in the third round of the 2011 amateur draft.

"He's another one of those guys we think highly of", manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "He's physically ready to go and hopefully he'll be able to present himself well against a good club. That's the team with the best record in the American League last year that we're facing. They're a good club. Very fundamentally sound."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) The Orioles have placed right-hander Jason Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, retroactive to May 11, per the team's official website. Garcia held a 5.93 ERA in  13 2/3 innings. He will be heading to Sarasota to start his rehab, per MASN Sports.

In a corresponding move, the club recalled right-hander Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk to take his spot on the active roster. Wright has yet to pitch in a big-league game.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
