While the Atlanta Braves won their game last night against the Marlins handily, the win came with a pretty real cost. Not only was Michael Harris II banged up after he landed awkwardly on a play at first base, but Kyle Wright had to leave the game in the third inning with what was later termed to be right shoulder soreness.
Given that the shoulder issue was enough to pull him from the game AND it is also the same shoulder that delayed the start of Wright's 2023 season after he had to have a cortisone shot in it over the offseason, the Braves are clearly wanting to be cautious with Wright and give him more time. After the game last night, manager Brian Snitker said that Wright would hit the injured list and also said that Dylan Dodd would get called up to start today's series finale against the Marlins.
They made the move official today.
Now that Kyle's shoulder has been a repeated issue for him this year, it may be fair to assume that he could be out for a while as the team evaluates him and tries to get that shoulder calmed down.
As for Dylan Dodd, he really impressed during spring training and ended up earning a couple of starts in the big leagues to start the season. His first start against the Cardinals went well as he went five innings and only gave up one run. However, his start against the Padres went decidedly less well. Since returning to Gwinnett, the results have been mixed as he struggled to throw strikes and got beat up a bit in his last start in Triple-A.
