Early life[edit]

Prior to playing professionally, Enright attended St. Mary's High School and then Pepperdine University. In his first year at Pepperdine, 2005, he went 10-1 with a 4.62 ERA in 18 starts. The following year, he went 13-2 with a 4.05 ERA in 21 games (20 starts). In 2007, he went 12-5 with a 1.99 ERA in 18 starts. He was drafted in the second round of the 2007 amateur draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Arizona Diamondbacks[edit]

Enright began his professional career in 2007, splitting the season between three teams - the Yakima Bears (five games), the South Bend Silver Hawks (one game) and the Visalia Oaks (four games). He did not allow a single earned run in 15 combined innings of work, and he struck out 17 batters. In 2008, he pitched for the Oaks, going 12-8 with a 4.44 ERA in 29 starts. With the Mobile Bay Bears in 2009, Enright went 10-9 with a 3.98 ERA in 27 starts. He began 2010 with the Mobile Bay Bears, going 4-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 14 starts prior to his call-up to the major leagues.[2] In 2011 while he was pitching for the Reno Aces, Enright threw a pitch behind Josh Donaldson of the Sacramento River Cats (who tagged Enright for a home run in the game earlier) and was promptly ejected along with Donaldson as the benches and bullpens cleared.[3]

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim[edit]

On July 24, 2012, Enright was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for cash considerations. On Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Enright surrendered a two-run walk-off home run to Oakland Athletics slugger Brandon Moss in the nineteenth inning. The home run, which ended the longest game in Angels history, took place over six and a half hours after the first pitch, which was thrown by the Athletics' Dan Straily 7:05PM PT the previous day.

Philadelphia Phillies[edit]

Enright signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies in January 2014.
