The Sugar Land Skeeters announced Thursday the completion of two separate trade deals bringing Atlantic League veteran starting pitchers Derrick Gordon (Somerset) and Matt Wright (Lancaster) to the team.

The hard throwing right-hander Matt Wright bolsters a stacked starting rotation for the 2012 season. A native and resident of Waco, Texas, Wright adds 11 years of minor league experience to the Skeeters reaching as high as the Triple-A level. He was drafted in the 21st round of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft by the Atlanta Braves, but also made appearances on the mound for the Kansas City Royals and Oakland A’s organizations.
