RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Wright had a solid but unspectacular season for the Dodgers, tossing 67.2 innings of 3.72 ERA ball that included a rather lofty 1.51 WHIP and a so-so 54:30 K:BB. Wright minimizes the damage from his 4.0 BB/9 via a 67.3 percent groundball rate that ranked second in the league only behind Arizona's Brad Ziegler. The Dodgers could look to bring Wright back, but though he has "real life" value, he's unlikely to see save opportunities wherever he winds up.

2012

Wright was a generally reliable setup man last season, leading the Mariners with 68.1 relief innings and 16 holds. He endured a rough 16-game summer stretch in which he gave up 16 of his 24 earned runs and all six of his home runs allowed but recovered to finish the last two months strong. Wright is nothing special, as his 48:30 K:BB attests, but he can give a team innings. Whether that team is the Mariners this year remains to be seen. The M's have plenty of bullpen options these days and it is uncertain if they'll re-sign the free-agent Wright. Where he lands, it's unlikely he'll have a shot at saves.

2010

Wright was a key cog in the bullpen for the Royals in 2009, leading the team in appearances with 65. A journeyman for most of his career, Wright was one of the more reliable arms manager Trey Hillman turned to late in games. As is the case with many Royals pitchers, Wright struggled with control at times (5.0 BB/9IP). He filed for free agency in November but the Royals will try to retain him for 2010 as he can provide a veteran presence late in games.

2009

Wright is expected to pitch elsewhere in 2009 following a poor season in late-to-middle relief with Texas in 2008. He won't be any good.

2008

Wright was limited early in the season by some shoulder problems, and somehow managed a 3.62 ERA for the year despite a terrible 39:41 K:BB ratio in 77 innings. Texas has expressed an interest in re-signing him to pitch out of the bullpen. Let's hope you're smarter than that.

2007

Wright's surprisingly solid April (3.34 ERA) turned out to be a bad thing for San Francisco. The team continued using him as its fifth starter for far too long afterward. Despite a horrific 79:64 K:BB over 156 IP, the Giants allowed Wright to make 21 starts last season. He finished with a 5.19 ERA and 1.48 WHIP, both close to his career norms. The Giants declined his option during the offseason, so Wright will probably have to accept a minor league deal elsewhere. His days as a starter should be finished.

2006

There isn't much good to say about Wright's 2005. He went 8-16 forcing a demotion to the bullpen during the final month of the season. As a free agent, he's headed to some team's farm system.

2005

Wright is a true Quadruple-A pitcher. He's been shuttling up and down for most of his career, and had one of his better major league stretches late last season. With a strong spring Wright could earn a spot at the back of a major league rotation, but even in his good years, he isn't much of a fantasy pitcher over the long haul.

2004

After two organizations gave up on Wright, the Royals signed him and sent him to Omaha. He responded well, pitching three complete games and recording a 3.80 ERA in 20 games. The Royals rewarded him with four late-season starts and he didn't disappoint. Now with the Cubs, his odds at landing a major-league job are low.

2003

Wright is a free agent this winter after being traded to the Cardinals late last August. There’s a chance that St. Louis will re-sign him but only at fifth-starter money and for good reason. Wright has a career ERA of 5.17 and a 541/522 K/BB ratio in 1,030 innings. In 2002, his K/BB was 77/75, pretty much in line with his career marks. In summary, although Wright has decent stuff, there’s no real reason to think he’ll suddenly put it together next season.
