Orioles | Mike Wright used in relief

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:43:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright threw 13 pitches in relief in the ninth inning Wednesday, May 4, against the New York Yankees. However, he is still expected to start Saturday, May 7, against the Oakland Athletics. Wright's inning of relief amounts to a glorified side session.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is a solid play in some AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play when the matchup is favorable.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez resting on Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 13:56:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly on Saturday, April 9. C Matt Wieters will move over to designated hitter and bat sixth while C Caleb Joseph will serve as SP Mike Wright's battery-mate behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez signed with the Orioles in mid-March and predictably struggled during the spring, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise the ex-Pittsburgh Pirate is 0-for-12 to begin his Baltimore career. Owners should know the drill with Alvarez by now; occasional outbursts of power accompanied by a low batting average. As long as your team can take the hit in average, he can be a boon to the HR and RBI categories.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 13:15:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright on Saturday, April 9. DH/OF Corey Dickerson will take Jennings' place in the field while 1B Logan Morrison will fill Dickerson's role as the designated hitter and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings went hitless Friday for the first time this season but has yet to record an extra-base hit or RBI. The once-highly touted prospect remains an injury risk and, as a result, shouldn't be counted on too heavily in fantasy despite his five-tool skill set. With that said, Jennings has been batting out of the five-hole thus far and should be expected to start producing soon.

Orioles | Kevin Gausman won't be rushed back

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 15:08:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman (shoulder) won't be rushed back from right shoulder tendinitis, according to manager Buck Showalter, and the Orioles hope he can pitch on April 19. SPs Mike Wright and Tyler Wilson are believed to be the best bets for the fourth and fifth rotation spots, but SP Vance Worley is still in competition this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Gausman had shoulder issues last year, too, so the O's are being cautious with their rising star pitcher. His overall numbers last season don't really properly reflect his K/9 skills as a starter, and he could break out if fully healthy. Grab him as a late-round flier and stash him in deep mixed leagues.

Orioles | More rotation competition for O's

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 11:43:53 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SPs Tyler Wilson, Mike Wright, Odrisamer Despaigne and Vance Worley are rotation candidates after the Orioles have posted a league-high spring ERA of 7.11 so far.

Fantasy Tip: New acquisition Yovani Gallardo has been slow out of the gates and Chris Tillman is dealing with a hip injury. Aside from maybe Kevin Gausman in deep mixed leagues for his upside, none of Baltimore's starters are very appealing to fantasy owners.

Orioles | Mike Wright solid in spring debut

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 21:32:43 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright worked two scoreless innings with two strikeouts in his Grapefruit League spring start Tuesday, March 1, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Wright was penciled into the rotation before the team went out and grabbed Yovani Gallardo, so Wright is on the outside looking in right now. He might start out at Class AAA, he might work out of the pen in long relief while remaining stretched out for starter duty if needed. Either way, as it stands now, his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.

Orioles | Several hurlers to battle for No. 5 spot

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 07:42:34 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SPs Tyler Wilson, Mike Wright, Vance Worley and Chris Jones could battle for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation if the team decides to use an in-house candidate for the job.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore had been rumored to have interest in free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) but they would have to part with their first-round draft pick if they signed him, making it increasingly likely that they will fill the void with someone already inside the organization. All of the current candidates are nothing more than late-round fliers in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Mike Wright could start Saturday

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 17:59:39 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright (calf) is a candidate to start against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, Sept. 5, on three days' rest, according to manager Buck Showalter. He threw six scoreless innings in a rehab start for Class AAA Norfolk Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is currently on the disabled list with a strained calf muscle. In seven games (six starts) at the major league level this season, he is 2-3 with a 4.99 ERA and would not be a great starting option in FantasyScore.

Orioles | Mike Wright sent down

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 09:33:45 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright was optioned to the minors Saturday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) went just 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Friday after allowing four earned runs, and he was sporting an ERA of 5.16 in six starts this year. You can drop him in all formats.
