Wright leaves

Mike Wright exited Friday’s game against the Tigers in the top of the fifth inning with a left calf cramp.

Wright threw a pitch to Victor Martinez, who singled, and pitching coach Dave Wallace and manager Buck Showalter came out immediately with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells. Wright walked off the mound after several minutes and was replaced by Mychal Givens.

Both Givens and Wright were added to the roster on Friday in the wake of the Os trading of Tommy Hunter and designating Bud Norris. Wright came into the game after lefty Wei-Yin Chen’s rough 3 1/3-inning outing.
