2023 Fantasy Outlook
Pre-2022, Wright posted a 6.56 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over four MLB seasons, spanning 70 innings. After dominating Triple-A in 2021, Wright was given a chance to be Atlanta's fifth starter and he took advantage, starting 30 games and amassing a league-leading 21 wins across 180 innings in a breakthrough campaign. Wright cut way back on his slider, relying more on his curve and changeup with excellent results. Both secondary offerings improved, but his curve was especially effective, perhaps due to adding a couple mph. Wright's control improved dramatically, and he became an extreme groundball pitcher. He was a little lucky, as shown by a 3.58 FIP, 3.30 xFIP and 3.48 SIERA. Even so, his ERA estimators portend a solid fantasy starter. Maintaining a new skill level after such a steep improvement is a challenge, but even with some giveback, Wright appears to have developed into a solid mid-rotation starter. Read Past Outlooks
