Wright was even called up to the Majors at one point this season and didn't appear in a game before he was sent down. The 26-year-old left-hander not only endured it all, but he says his experiences of the last few years have been beneficial.
"In a weird way, it's helped me take some of that pressure off," Wright said. "I've been in that [manager's] office enough times to where it's not even a fear anymore. I kind of know the routine of you get the call and you're probably going down. It's kind of been eliminated from my mind, and now I can just focus on doing what I do best, and that's going out there to pitch."
Wright entered Tuesday's game with 10 scoreless appearances since he was recalled from Triple-A on Aug. 20. He has 15 consecutive scoreless appearances combined between Triple-A and the Majors since Aug. 8.
"I got into a groove in Triple-A and I've been trying to stay in that exact same groove and not try to do anything different because I got called back up to the big leagues," he said.
"I'm trying to keep my mindset not to put any added pressure on myself. It's a situation I want to go out and enjoy it and try to do the best you can, because I've been through so many ups and downs in the last couple of years, I think it kind of affected the way I performed. So, it's just enjoy it, let your natural ability take over. It's shown with the way I pitched lately."
