BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Wright is another young Sox arm that ended the year on an up note, logging quality starts in 6 of his last 7 games. His control improved toward the end of the season, but he was still vulnerable to the long ball. Look for him to match that projection in 2003, with more room for improvement in the future.
2002 The Sox have had a lot of unreliable pitchers at the major-league level the past few seasons, which is the main reason guys like Danny Wright have found themselves discovering that yes, there are direct flights from Birmingham to Chicago. The other reason is that the Sox have a 737 full of pitching prospects, and they all have to pitch somewhere. Sometimes, somewhere is Comiskey Park. Wright, a fastball/curveball pitcher, needs time at Triple-A to work on his control and a third pitch.
2001 Unlike most of the organization's hard-throwing right-handers, Danny Wright’s main breaking pitch is a good curve instead of a slider; like almost all of them, he throws in the mid 90s. While he was supposed to be very rough coming out of the University of Arkansas, he’s now credited with having good mechanics.
