Wesley Wright holds a 2.95 ERA over 21 appearances.
Wright broke out in 2012, putting up a 3.27 ERA while striking out over a batter per inning. Over his first three seasons, batters teed off to the tune of a 5.33 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 134 games. In the last three years, Wright has turned into a fine LOOGY, posting a 2.94 ERA and 8.4/2.9 K/BB/9 rate. Owners in deep AL-only formats should note that Wright's WHIP this year (1.53) sits right around where it did during the dark years of his career. He's walking fewer batters then he ever has, but has surrendered 23 hits over 18 1/3 frames.

Astros recalled LHP Wesley Wright from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
This will be Wright's third straight season of decreasing action for the Astros, as he's pitched just two innings for the team thus far. He needs a strong showing the rest of the way if he expects to remain on the 40-man roster this winter. The 2.07 ERA in 65 1/3 innings for Oklahome City rates as somewhat encouraging.
