Atlanta Braves right-hander Kyle Wright is recovering from surgery to repair a torn capsule in his throwing shoulder and is expected to miss the 2024 season, the team said Friday.

The Braves said Wright, 28, underwent the procedure on Wednesday.

He was put on the 60-day injured list on Saturday after an MRI revealed the extent of his shoulder damage.

Because of injuries in the 2023 season, Wright appeared in just nine games (seven starts), posting a 1-3 record with a 6.97 ERA in 31 innings.

Wright led the majors in 2022 in wins when he posted a 21-5 record in 30 starts in his first full season. He had a 3.19 ERA and struck out 174 batters in 180 1/3 innings.

In 60 career games (51 starts) since 2018, Wright is 24-16 with a 4.45 ERA in 281 1/3 innings.
