  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Picks up league-leading 21st win

    Wright (21-5) earned the win against the Mets on Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out three and walking one over five innings.

    Wright picked up his league-leading 21st win Saturday, tossing 62 of 87 pitches for strikes. He limited the damage to just two runs despite allowing eight baserunners and striking out only three Mets batters. Atlanta seems to be limiting Wright's innings lately, as he has completed six innings once since Sept. 1. The righty finishes the regular season with a 3.19 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: First pitcher to 20 wins

    Wright (20-5) gave up two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings to earn the win in a 6-3 victory over the Phillies on Saturday.

    Wright held the Phillies scoreless into the sixth inning until Bryce Harper took him deep for a two-run shot. Nevertheless, Wright received enough run support and lasted long enough on 97 pitches to earn his 20th win of the season. Wright is the first MLB pitcher to reach 20 wins this year, and it appears that he may finish the season as the only hurler to reach that important milestone. He is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Mets.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Picks up 19th win

    Wright (19-5) allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk over six innings to earn the win over the Nationals on Monday. He struck out seven.

    Wright has been one of the biggest surprises of the season, and he made his layup at home against the Nats to continue his breakout campaign. No other pitcher in baseball has more than 17 wins, so Wright has a real shot to be the first and only pitcher to reach 20 wins in 2022. The right-hander has had a couple hiccups in the second half where you wouldn't expect them, but regardless he's 8-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 10 starts since the All-Star break.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Tallies 18th win

    Wright (18-5) earned the win during Tuesday's 5-1 victory over San Francisco, allowing one run on three hits and three walks with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Wright surrendered one run on two hits in the first inning and loaded the bases in the second but proceeded to face the minimum over the next 10 batters and fell in line for his MLB-leading 18th victory when Atlanta took the lead in the third. It was a nice rebound from eight runs in four innings during his last start. Wright carries a 3.18 ERA into his next outing, currently scheduled to come early next week against Washington.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Struggles versus Oakland

    Wright pitched four innings, giving up eight runs on five hits and three walks while hitting two batters and striking out four in Tuesday's win over the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.

    Wright had his worst performance of the season Tuesday, giving up a season-high eight runs and matching his shortest outing of the year. He surrendered two home runs after allowing one total in his previous four outings, all of which were quality starts as well. The poor performance raised Wright's ERA from 2.85 to 3.23 over 158.2 frames in 26 outings. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, which tentatively lines up for Monday at San Francisco.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Notches league-best 17th win

    Wright (17-5) earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out six batters over seven scoreless innings.

    Wright completed seven scoreless frames for the second straight contest, and he consequently took over the major-league lead with his 17th victory. The right-hander allowed at least one baserunner in six of his seven frames but didn't give up any extra-base hits and was aided by a pair of double plays. Wright has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign, supplementing his league-best win total with a 2.85 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 150:43 K:BB over 154.2 innings.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Blanks Bucs for 16th win

    Wright (16-5) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing two hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings in a 14-2 rout of the Pirates. He struck out eight.

    He only faced any kind of threat in the third inning after issuing a two-out walk followed by an Oneil Cruz single, but Kevin Newman lined out straight back to Wright to end the frame. The right-hander generated 15 swinging strikes among his 73 pitches en route to his third straight quality start and his seventh in his last eight outings. Wright will take a 2.99 ERA and 144:41 K:BB through 147.2 innings into his next start.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Strikes out seven in win

    Wright (15-5) earned the win against the Astros on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking one over six innings.

    Wright continued his breakout season Friday, throwing 61 of 84 pitches for strikes and striking out seven Astros batters, which is impressive considering the Astros have the second fewest strikeouts in the league. The righty turned in his sixth quality start in his last seven games. He will take a 3.14 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Cleared to pitch Friday

    Wright (arm) is scheduled to start Friday's series opener against the Astros in Atlanta, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Wright had been a candidate to start Thursday's series finale with the Mets, but Max Fried (concussion) is on track to be reinstated from the 7-day injured list in time to take the hill against the National League East leaders. Coming out of his last outing Aug. 10 in Boston, Wright experienced some right arm fatigue, but the extended break looks like it's provided him with sufficient time to recover from the issue. He's not expected to face any major workload restrictions when he takes the hill Friday.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Expected to start late this week

    Wright (arm) is expected to start late this week, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Wright is dealing with arm fatigue that will keep him out through the first three games of Atlanta's series against the Mets, but Wright and Max Fried (concussion) are expected to rejoin the rotation late this week. Wright will likely start Thursday against the Mets or Friday against the Astros.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Battling arm fatigue

    Wright is dealing with right arm fatigue and won't start in the first three games of the upcoming series against the Mets, which begins Monday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Wright allowed one earned run across six innings during his previous start Aug. 10 in Boston, and he'll have his scheduled turn through the rotation pushed back by at least a couple days. Atlanta has yet to announce a starter for Thursday's series finale, though it remains to be seen if the 26-year-old will be cleared to take the mound. Spencer Strider, Charlie Morton and Jake Odorizzi will start the first three games of the series versus New York.

  • Braves' Kyle Wright: Earns 14th win

    Wright (14-5) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on six hits and one walk over six innings against the Red Sox. He struck out five.

    Wright allowed at least one baserunner in five of his six innings, but the 26-year-old was able to work his way out of trouble more times than not. The only blemish for the right-hander came in the fifth, when he allowed back-to-back hits to lead off the inning, but he escaped with only one run allowed after inducing a run-scoring double play from Tommy Pham. It was a solid bounce-back performance for Wright after he allowed a career-high four home runs during last Thursday's loss to the Mets. Across 22 starts (134.2 innings), Wright sports a 3.14 ERA with a 129:39 K:BB.
