In a devastating turn of events, the Atlanta Braves have placed right-handed pitcher Kyle Wright on the 60-day injured list, effectively ruling him out for the postseason and, regrettably, the entire 2024 season. Manager Brian Snitker confirmed this unfortunate development during a press briefing, as reported by The Athletic's David O'Brien. Wright's ongoing shoulder troubles, which originated during Spring Training, have necessitated corrective surgery.
Wright's shoulder woes began with an early-season stint on the 15-day injured list. He managed to make five starts before another injury forced him into an extended four-month layoff. September saw his return to the Braves' rotation, where he participated in four games – two as a starter and two as a reliever. As the playoffs loomed, the Braves were planning to utilize Wright in a bullpen role during the postseason, a role he embraced to aid the team's championship aspirations. However, a recent MRI unveiled further shoulder damage, leaving surgery as the only viable option to address the issue once and for all. RFD TV Channel
