Orioles recall Mike Wright from Triple-A

The Baltimore Orioles recalled pitcher Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

What It Means:

Wright has made 12 starts and two relief appearances for the Orioles this season (69 1/3 innings), and has struggled to a 5.97 ERA and a poor 15.6 strikeout percentage (league average is 21.0 percent).

Wright's 5.24 xFIP is only slightly better than his ERA and his 8.5 walk percentage is worse than league average (8.1 percent). He wasn't any better in 2015, posting a 6.04 ERA and a 5.70 xFIP in 44 2/3 innings.
