Kyle Wright
23-Year-Old PitcherRP
2018 Fantasy Outlook
In the days leading up to the 2017 draft, Wright was rumored as the favorite to be the first player off the board, and while he fell to the Braves at No. 5, his $7 million bonus ranked third in the class. His deep repertoire and 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame are tailor-made for the rotation. His best pitch is his mid-90s fastball -- a double-plus offering thanks to its late life. He complements it with a curveball and slider, both of which can be out pitches on the right day. His changeup is his fourth pitch, but it too shows plus potential at times. He only logged 17 innings after signing, allowing runs to score in just three of his nine outings. It would not be surprising if he were aggressively assigned to Double-A, and he should be the first starting pitcher from last year's draft to reach the majors. He should settle in as a No. 2 or No. 3 starter, but if he maxes out his command, he could pitch atop a big-league rotation. Read Past Outlooks

Wright will join the Braves as a September callup after his contract was selected Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Wright is one of a number of highly touted prospects in the Braves' system. He has long-term potential as a No. 2 starter, though he's likely to pitch in a bullpen role down the stretch. The 22-year-old has a 2.51 ERA in 28.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett following a late-July promotion.
