When will Kyle Wright return to Braves rotation this season?

We’ve got the latest updates for Braves starter Kyle Wright and when he’ll return in 2023.

MLB: NLDS-Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Braves SP Kyle Wright will open the 2023 MLB season on the 15-day injured list after putting together a breakout year in 2022. He was the league’s lone 20-game winner last season in his first full year as a starter in the rotation.

Wright made 21 appearances with 14 starts over his first four seasons before putting together 30 starts in 2022 and finished with a 21-5 record. He finished with a 3.19 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 180.1 innings of work.

Kyle Wright injury update

April 10 update — Good news for Braves fans who are tired of watching Dylan Dodd and Jared Shuster get lit up: Wright is slated to make his return to Atlanta’s rotation on Tuesday against the Reds.

March 29 update — Wright will open the season on the injured list to strengthen an injured shoulder and is expected to make at least one Triple A start in early April before being brought back to the Braves roster. This doesn’t seem to be a major issue, and it doesn’t appear to be a significant issue throughout the season without a huge impact on his fantasy baseball projections.
