Braves’ Kyle Wright to miss 2024 with shoulder injury

Atlanta Braves right-hander Kyle Wright will need a shoulder procedure and is expected to miss the 2024 regular season, manager Brian Snitker said Saturday.

The Braves put Wright, 28, on the 60-day injured list with a right shoulder strain earlier Saturday in advance of their National League Division Series matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies. An MRI on Friday revealed the extent of Wright’s shoulder damage.

Atlanta recalled left-hander Max Fried and right-hander Daysbel Hernandez from the 15- and 60-day injured lists, respectively. Both were added to the NLDS roster, while right-hander Jesse Chavez was dropped.

Over the past three postseasons, Wright was 2-1 with a 3.93 ERA in five games (three starts). In last season’s NLDS against the Phillies, Wright threw six scoreless two-hit innings in a game Atlanta eventually lost.

But this season was marred by injury and inconsistency, with Wright appearing in just nine games (seven starts), posting a 1-3 record with a 6.97 ERA in 31 innings.

“You could tell in his last couple outings something wasn’t right.” Snitker said Saturday.

MLB.com reported that Hernandez impressed the Braves’ brass during two intrasquad games this week.

Hernandez, 27, appeared in just four games and threw 3 2/3 innings before going on the injured list with right forearm inflammation. He was 1-0 with a 7.36 ERA.

Fried, 29, was bothered by a blister issue in September but Snitker pronounced him ready to go this week. On the season, he was 8-1 with a 2.55 ERA in 14 games, limited to just 77 2/3 innings because of a left forearm strain.

In his postseason career, Fried is 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA in 18 games (10 starts).

Chavez, 40, was 1-0 with a 1.56 ERA and a save in 36 games (one start). He was part of Atlanta’s World Series-winning team in 2021.
