    Wright's previous two seasons came to a premature end, when he was dismissed for violating team rules at Mississippi in 2004 and broke his pitching hand punching a teammate in 2005. He projected as a possible third-round pick before getting hurt last year, then went undrafted in June. He's a lefty who can throw three pitches for strikes--an 88-92 mph fastball, a cutter and a slider--though he sometimes catches too much of the plate. He should go in the sixth to 10th round on talent, perhaps earlier because he'll come with a senior discount.
