Red Sox's Steven Wright: Tosses two simulated innings
Wright (knee) was able to throw a two-inning, 31-pitch live batting practice session against minor leaguers Wednesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Wright described the outing as a "big win" after facing live hitting for the first time this spring. It's possible that Wright's next outing could come in the Grapefruit League, but with the right-hander well behind his fellow pitchers, he could hit the disabled list to open the season while he works his way back from left knee surgery. That said, there's still a chance he could be ready to go by the time Boston needs a fifth starter April 2. In addition to spending his offseason recovering from the May knee procedure, Wright was arrested in December on domestic-violence charges, which have since been retired in court. It's unclear if Major League Baseball is still investigating the matter and/or weighing disciplinary action for Wright.
