YearComment
2009 Matt Wright is another former Brave grabbed by Moore. At this point, his main use lies in serving as a body to fill out a Triple-A rotation.
2008 An unheralded member of the mass migration from Atlanta to Kansas City, Wright signed as a minor league free agent and, courtesy of an improved changeup, had a nice year in Triple-A Omaha. Though he looks for all the world like a future member of the Quadruple-A All-Stars, the Royals re-signed him. They know from painful experience that they could do a lot worse as emergency starters go.
