Wright makes Astros bullpen

Wesley Wright, the Goshen High graduate who lives in Grady, will be on Houston's roster when the Astros start the season Monday at San Diego.

The Astros told Wright that he'd made the team after today's exhibition game with the Detroit Tigers in Houston. Wright was a Rule 5 draft pick from the Los Angeles Dodgers in December. He must stay on Houston's roster all season or the Dodgers can reclaim him.

Wright had a 2.38 ERA in 11 appearances this spring after throwing a perfect inning Friday.

The left-hander spent most of last season at Double-A Jacksonville. He posted a 2.49 ERA in 61 1/3 innings.
