Red Sox's Steven Wright: Suspended 80 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was suspended 80 games Wednesday after testing positive for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

The suspension will keep the knuckleballer out until mid-June and will make him ineligible to participate in the postseason. The veteran was theoretically in the mix for saves in Boston with the closer job wide open, though he was far from the favorite, so his absence won't move the needle much for frontrunners Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Set to throw Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will play long toss up to 90 feet Sunday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

The Red Sox are bringing Wright along slowly after undergoing an offseason arthroscopic procedure on his left knee. He's going to pitch out of the bullpen, where the knuckleballer is expected to pitch in a variety of roles. Wright believes he can thrive as a multiple-inning reliever if the knee holds up. "The biggest factor is swelling," Wright explained. "That's what I couldn't get rid of last year. Every time it would act up it would blow up. And then I'd get it drained. Then a couple weeks later it's back to square one." The right-hander has enjoyed success as a reliever with a 6-0 record, 2.99 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 31 career bullpen outings (78.1 innings).

Red Sox's Steven Wright: No longer considered starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is viewed as strictly a reliever this season, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

The knuckleballer has made 44 starts and 31 relief appearances thus far in his career. He was primarily a reliever last season and is expected to be exclusively one this year, with an outside shot at saves with the Red Sox currently lacking a proven closer.

Red Sox's Steven Wright: Set to wear knee brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright will wear a knee brace in 2019, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Wright dealt with lingering knee issues for a majority of the 2018 campaign, limiting the veteran knuckleballer to just four starts and 16 relief appearances. He underwent a scope on his left knee after the season, but Wright doesn't believe his knee will ever completely healthy. "I don't think I'm ever going to feel 100 percent like I did before I hurt my knee. But it's just trying to get as close to that as we can and staying consistent with it," the right-hander said. Wright is a candidate to close for the Red Sox in 2019, though he seems more likely to fill a swingman role.

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.
