After a solid, but unspectacular 2013 season in Bakersfield Ryan Wright would return to Bakersfield for the 2014 season. The second baseman got things off to a quick start as he went 3-5 on opening night with a double, run scored and an RBI. Two days later he would have another 3-5 game against Modesto. To the midpoint of April he was hitting .328 but would hit a slump in San Jose...

Ryan Wright finds himself on a short list of potential future second basemen in the near term for the Reds.
Turnover in the Cincinnati system has left Ryan Wright the Reds top remaining middle infield prospect. He made it to high-A Bakersfield late last season and started off slowly upon his return to the Blaze this season. That’s changing now as his bat is heating up with a .400 average over his last ten games.
