Wright (shoulder) will begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Wright is scheduled to pitch one inning tomorrow as he works his way back from a trapezius strain. He was recently moved to the 60-day disabled list; however, he is now free to come back at any point as he's since exceeded the 60 day minimum. He will likely need to make a handful of appearances before being called back up to the big leagues.

Wright (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Baltimore reports.

The move opens up a roster spot for reliever Chaz Roe, who had his contract purchased from Triple-A Norfolk. Wright has been working out as extended spring training as he attempts to recover from the shoulder injury, but manager Buck Showalter said the reliever wasn't likely to be fully healthy much sooner than the minimum 60 days.

Wright figures to head out on a minor league rehab assignment soon. He should need a few appearances before being activated. Early-June appears to be his most likely timeline at this point.

Wright (shoulder) threw an inning in extended spring training Tuesday, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Manager Buck Showalter indicated that Wright may only need one or two more extended spring appearances before being activated or sent on a minor league rehab assignment. Wright has pitched just 1.2 innings this season, but figures to rejoin the big league bullpen when he's fully healthy.

Wright (shoulder) threw off a mound at Baltimore's spring training complex Wednesday, MASN Sports reports.

Wright (shoulder) will throw off a full mound Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wright remains about two weeks out from his first extended spring game action, but he'll begin throwing within the week. He appeared in two big league games this season before getting hurt, and figures to continue serving as a low-leverage bullpen option when healthy.

Wright (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to pitch in his first extended game on May 19, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wright is set to begin throwing this week, and this development suggests roughly a two-week timetable for a return to game action. Once he's back in the bigs, Wright is still unlikely to see high-leverage situations out of the gates.

Wright (shoulder) could begin throwing next week, according to Baltimore's radio broadcast Wednesday.

Wright has been on the shelf since the first week of the season. If he can throw next week he is probably 2-to-3 weeks from returning to the Orioles after a minor league rehab assignment.

Wright (shoulder) is close to beginning a throwing program, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

Wright was placed on the disabled list April 11 and ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks due to left shoulder inflammation. It seems the time off he's received has allowed the inflammation to calm down at least a little bit, so he'll attempt to build his arm strength back up in preparation for a return to the O's bullpen. Wright posted a 3.17 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 48.1 innings with the Cubs last season.

Wright will miss the next 4-6 weeks after an MRI on his left shoulder revealed inflammation, Don Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports.

This is certainly a tough way for the 30-year-old to start his season as he'll spend the next month rehabbing. Additionally, Wright will have to spend some time in the minors before he gets the green light to assume his normal spot in Baltimore's bullpen.
