Biography:
Wright enters his second season with the Somerset Patriots and second in the Atlantic League. The 6’5” righty appeared in four games with the Patriots at the end of the 2019 season after he was acquired from the Evansville Otters (Frontier League) for future considerations.
 
Wright recorded one save and posted a 2.25 ERA (one run over 4.0 innings pitched) while striking out four without allowing a walk across his four Somerset appearances.
 
The Berwyn, Pennsylvania native began the 2019 season – his first in professional baseball – with the Otters after participating in Somerset’s open tryouts. Wright impressed with a 3-0 record, a 0.92 ERA and 18 saves over 38 relief appearances in his time in Evansville. Additionally, Wright yielded just five earned runs over 48.2 innings pitched while striking out 56 batters.
 
The Brown University alumnus won the Frontier League’s Jason Simontacchi Award for his standout 2019 season, which recognized the league’s Rookie of the Year. 
 
Wright enjoyed a three-year stint on Brown’s baseball club, where he made 38 appearances (5 starts), totaling 69.2 innings of work.
