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.

Wright was placed on the DL Saturday and the team later elaborated that it was a trapezius strain that forced him from Friday's outing, though a timetable for his return was not offered up.

Wright (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

It is not clear how serious the issue is, but it will keep Wright out of action for at least the next two weeks. Journeyman Eddie Gamboa will join the team if he can catch his flight, but if not, the O's could activate David Lough from the disabled list Saturday.

Wright experienced pain in his left shoulder or upper back during Friday's appearance and could be headed to the disabled list, MASN Sports reports.

Wright described the pain as a sharp soreness after allowing a run on two hits Friday and will likely be examined before Saturday's game. The Orioles may be due to activate David Lough from the disabled list, so from that standpoint the roster move would make sense.

Wright allowed two hits and struck out one in a scoreless inning in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game and he remains a candidate for a rotation spot.

The Orioles have been tied to trade talks involving Brian Matusz, according to MASN Sports. That could open up a spot for Wright to serve in middle relief. If Matusz remains with the Orioles, there is a good chance Wright begins the season in the minors.

Wright agreed to a one-year contract with the Orioles on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

The 29-year-old lefty saw his strikeout rate fall by more than two per nine innings last season (from 9.2 K/9 to 6.9 K/9), and his walk rate ticked up slightly as well (from 3.2 BB/9 to 3.5 BB/9), but he still turned in a respectable 3.17 ERA in 58 appearances with the Cubs. He's now slated to head back to the AL next season, but Wright will likely be nothing more than a middle-inning option for Baltimore.

The Cubs declined to tender Wright a contract, the Chicago Sun-Times' Gordon Wittenmyer reports.

Wright has been adequate at preventing runs as a reliever over the past four seasons, but his strikeout rated dipped to 17.7 percent in 2014, which likely made him expendable in the Cubs' estimation.
