 Biographical Information
On August 23, 2011, Wright got to play right field for a third of an inning in a game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. After Wright began the 8th inning by retiring Carlos Gonzalez, manager Brad Mills brought in righthander David Carpenter to face Troy Tulowitzki and sent Wright to RF, a position he had not played since high school, taking over for Brian Bogusevic. After Tulowitzki made an out, Wright returned to the mound, while J.B. Shuck took over in right field and Carpenter left the game. Wright struck out Todd Helton to end the inning. Mills used that strategy again on July 27, 2012, this time with Wilton Lopez taking over for a batter while Wright moved to right field with one out in the 8th inning in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. That batter, Andrew McCutchen, doubled to center, the Wright returned and got the last two outs of the inning without allowing McCutchen to score. The Astros had a 5-4 lead at that point, but the Bucs came back for two runs against Rhiner Cruz after Wright had opened the 9th by striking out Pedro Alvarez, handing the Astros their 11th straight loss.
