World Series: Why did Braves put Kyle Wright and Terrance Gore on the WS roster?

The right pitcher Kyle Wright made only two appearances at the Major League level during the regular season and the only experience of the gardener Terrance Gore In the majors this year it consisted of pinch-running during a game in the National League Division Series.

But both Wright and Gore were placed on the Braves World Series roster, which was announced Tuesday morning. They replace right-hander Jacob Webb and infielder Johan Camargo, in that order, who had been on the roster for the Atlanta National League Championship Series:

Wright is an extremely talented pitcher, although he hasn’t lived up to expectations since he was selected by the Braves as the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 MLB Draft. The right-hander proved success last year, but He only made two starts this year, the most recent on June 23, when he gave up five runs in two innings for the Mets.

The Braves drafted Triple-A to Wright after that outing and saw him hit a 2.18 ERA and limit opponents to a .197 batting average in his 13 starts for Triple-A Gwinnett. The 26-year-old right-hander will provide length to the Braves as a reliever. There is also the possibility that he could become a candidate to start Game 4, which could be a bullpen game. Braves manager Brian Snitker commented:

Kyle had been pitching really, really well at Triple-A for a while. It is not a small sample size. We go back and look, and he’s really maturing as a pitcher. “
