    Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright still dealing with concussion issues

    Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright (concussion) has pitched off a mound four times, but is still dealing with symptoms, The Boston Globe reports. "There are no balance issues; there's no dizziness. Nothing when he's on the mound," interim manager Torey Lovullo said. "What he's working through now are some headaches that are popping up later in the day." Wright has yet to be cleared by Major League Baseball, a necessity for a player with a concussion to return to game action. If he does return this season, the report indicates it would be in a relief role.

    Red Sox SP Steven Wright clobbered at Fenway

    The Tigers turned the fluttering knuckleball of Red Sox starter Steven Wright into line drives far too often Saturday afternoon. The result was that Wright was off the mound in the fifth and lamenting his fourth defeat when it was over. He allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits in 4 1/3 innings with two walks and four strikeouts. Wright never found a groove. Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos were his chief tormentors. The former slammed a solo homer in the first and the latter hit a two-run double in the fourth. Wright was removed after a double and walk in the fifth. His recent stint as a starter has not gone well. He has allowed 13 earned runs in his last 13 innings pitched.
