Red Sox's Steven Wright: Could see saves in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Wright is an option at closer in 2019, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

With Craig Kimbrel hitting the free agent market, Dombrowski named Wright, Ryan Brasier, Matt Barnes and Tyler Thornburg as possible options to take over as the team's closer, though he noted Barnes and Brasier are the two frontrunners. The veteran knuckleballer was solid when healthy in 2018, posting a 2.68 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 53.2 innings. He underwent a scope on his left knee earlier in the offseason but should be good to go for the start of spring training.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright signed a one-year, $1.375 million contract with the Red Sox on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Lingering knee issues coupled with a 15-game suspension limited Wright to just four starts and 16 relief appearances for the Red Sox in 2018. When healthy, the veteran knuckleballer posted a tidy 2.68 ERA across 53.2 innings, though poor walk (11.7 percent) and strikeout (18.8 percent) rates suggest he was a bit lucky (4.37 FIP). Wright underwent a scope on his left knee earlier in the offseason but is expected to be ready to go for spring training. He's set to compete for a back-end rotation spot in camp.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Has procedure on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday and is expected to be ready to pitch for the 2019 season, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Wright picked up a knee injury during the first game of the ALDS against New York, and he didn't appear for the rest of the postseason. He'll have nearly the entire offseason to recover from the procedure and should enter spring training as a strong candidate to win a spot in the starting rotation.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Could be rotation option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Thursday that Wright will need to get his knee checked out again but that he will be a "good rotation option" for the Red Sox next year, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Wright suffered the knee injury during Game 1 of the ALDS against the Yankees and failed to return for the World Series after being taken off the postseason roster. He was expected to require arthroscopic surgery, though Dombrowski added that there's no procedure planned at the current time. More should be known regarding his status once he goes in and gets the knee checked out again. Wright wound up making four starts out of his 20 appearances in the regular season, logging an impressive 2.68 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with a 7.0 K/9. The right-hander previously worked as a starter the last few years, but injury problems and a lack of consistency drove him to the bullpen, so it remains to be seen whether he's able to come into spring training fully healthy with a chance to win a back-end of the rotation spot.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Doesn't make World Series roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (knee) did not make Boston's World Series roster.

Wright was considered likely to make it back after injuring his knee in early October but he'll wind up missing the series. The Red Sox made just one change to the roster after the ALCS, adding Drew Pomeranz in place of Brandon Workman.
