RED SOX HURLER WRIGHT TO HAVE KNEE SURGERY

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

The Bos­ton Red Sox say knuck­le­baller Steven Wright needs knee surgery and will miss the rest of the sea­son. The team said be­fore Thurs­day night’s game against Bal­ti­more that the righthander will have an op­er­a­tion to re­pair the car­ti­lage in his left knee next week. Red Sox man­ager John Far­rell said there wasn’t one thing that caused the in­jury. Wright pitched on Satur­day and came out with­out any com­plaints, ac­cord­ing to Dave Dom­browski, the team’s president of base­ball op­er­a­tions. In all, the 2016 All-Star was 1-4 with an 8.25 ERA in five starts this sea­son. Dom­browski said he thought the team didn’t need to make a move to bol­ster the ro­ta­tion.
