RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After topping 70 appearances in both 2012 and 2013, Wright appeared in just 58 games in his first season with the Cubs. The veteran LOOGY kept the ball in the park, only giving up two home runs in 48.1 innings, but there wasn't much in his skill set that is interesting, though the last time he had an ERA north of 4.00 was 2010. He'll throw 50 innings, won't hurt your ERA or WHIP too much, and he'll get you about 10 holds. If that's worth something in your league, throw a dart.

2014

After spending the first six seasons of his career with the Astros, Wright headed to a winning ballclub in an August trade with the Rays. He worked in a setup role with the Astros, but the Rays had a talented bullpen and he did not work in as many high-leverage situations when he arrived in Tampa Bay. On the season between both teams, he pitched in 70 games and had a 3.69 ERA and averaged 9.2 K/9 over 53.2 innings. He is a dependable left-handed pitcher towards the back of the bullpen who will be 29 in 2014. The Cubs signed him in December and he could see the opportunity for an occasional save, but he's more likely to work as a middle reliever or setup man in Chicago.

2013

Wright got into an insane number of games last season, making 77 appearances and leading the team in holds after pitching just 12 innings for the Astros in 2011. The team finally committed to making Wright a LOOGY and with good results. He will spin plenty of sliders, albeit with average movement. Wright stays ahead of hitters by throwing first-pitch strikes, which helps him keep his pitch count down. With the departure of Wilton Lopez, Wright should be a lock to return to the bullpen. He will attempt to build on his breakout 2012 campaign and cement his role as a key left-hander for new manager Bo Porter.

2012

After finally giving up the dream to be a starter, Wright posted fantastic numbers in middle relief for the Astros in 2011, largely in Triple-A, but with 21 appearances as a LOOGY with the Astros. Of some concern is his plummeting strikeout rate, which for the past two seasons has been about 2.50 K/9IP lower than his 2008 and 2009 totals. He may emerge as a good source of holds, as the Astros need lefties and figure to be in a lot of close games again in 2012.

2011

Wright made only four starts for the Astros in 2010, despite the preseason talk that the team would give him a long look as a starter. He will be 26 at the start of the 2011 season, so his chances to compete for a rotation spot could be dwindling, especially if his control never quite catches up with his strikeout stuff. The Astros now have other prospects on the horizon, so perhaps it would be wise for everyone if they committed Wright to the bullpen for good.

2010

2009 was a schizophrenic year for the former Rule 5 pick. He pitched great at home, registering a 3.38 ERA and 6.0 K/BB through 25 appearances. Unfortunately he turned into Mr. Hyde on the road (8.50 ERA / 2.500 WHIP). The Astros are attempting to convert Wright into a starter, and sent him to the Dominican Winter League to stretch out his arm. He'll have as good chance as any of the young pitchers at sticking in the Astros' 2010 rotation, perhaps even more so given that he's a lefty who can pitch inside to righties and puts hitters from both sides of the plate away with ease (47 strikeouts in 44.2 innings). Whether he can overcome his nerves when pitching away from Minute Maid Park remains to be seen.

2009

After being taken from the Dodgers during the Rule 5 draft, Wright spent the entire season with the Astros, going 4-3 with a 5.01 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 55.2 innings across 71 appearances. His 34 walks were far too many, and that was compounded by the eight home runs he allowed. The fact that hes a lefty makes it likely hell be part of the Houston bullpen again in 2009, but he needs to pitch better against right-handed hitters if he wants to be a real impact player. Even if that never happens, Wright gives the Astros an alternative to Tim Byrdak, in that he's also very tough against lefties (29:8 K:BB, .207 BAA).
