Steven Wright was diagnosed with a right foot contusion after X-rays came back negative Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Wright suffered the injury on Saturday night when he got hit in the foot by a line drive during a seventh-inning appearance against the Dodgers. X-rays turned up negative and he is considered day-to-day and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
Steven Wright (suspension) is expected to be activated Tuesday when he is eligible to return from an 80-game suspension for violating MLB's performance-enhancing drug policy, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Wright is expected to make one more rehab appearance with the Pawtucket before returning. The knuckleballer has a 2.35 ERA while striking out four batters in 7 2/3 innings in Triple-A. Wright will work out of the bullpen for Boston and will not have a big impact in fantasy.
Steven Wright (suspension) is expected to report to one of the Red Sox's minor-league affiliates to begin a rehab assignment June 10, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
Wright was suspended 80 games before the season for PEDs. The 34-year-old will be eligible to rejoin the Red Sox on June 25. Wright has been working out at the Red Sox's extended spring training facility in Florida and with his rehab assignment should be ready to go. It remains to be seen what role the veteran will play and for now fantasy owners should leave him on the wire.
Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright has been suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 (GHRP-2), according to a report from MLB Network's Jon Morosi.
Wright missed most of 2018 with knee issues but was in camp with the Red Sox as he tried to lock down an important role in their new-look bullpen. That role will now have to wait until the second half of the season with the knuckleballer getting suspended for 80 games.
Steven Wright (knee) threw two innings in a simulated game Friday and will be activated from the disabled list Saturday, per Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Wright will pitch out of the bullpen as the Red Sox could use some extra arms. He may get a spot start if needed but it does not look like the veteran knuckleballer will have any fantasy value for the rest of the season.
