Orioles place LHP Wright on DL, call up RHP Gamboa

April 11, 2015

BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles have placed left-handed reliever Wesley Wright on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury.

Wright experienced discomfort in his shoulder Friday while pitching against Toronto. He didn't feel better on Saturday, so he has been put on the DL with a strained trapezius.

It is Wright's first stint on the disabled list since 2009, when he strained his left shoulder with the Astros.

The 30-year-old Wright was signed to a one-year contract in December after playing with the Cubs in 2014.

Baltimore filled the void by recalling right-hander Eddie Gamboa from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gamboa's visit could be a short one. The Orioles will need a roster spot for outfielder David Lough, who is expected to be activated from the disabled list in a few days.
