BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 This big, strapping southpaw has a future, but it will most likely come as a reliever with an outside shot of being a back-end starter. While not overwhelming, Wright's repertoire shows promise, and the continued development of his changeup will determine his ultimate path. He handled his first full-season assignment well, all things considered, and will get a crack at the high minors in 2013.
