Steven Wright will miss his next start due to inflammation in his shoulder, John Farrell said prior to Wednesday’s game. Wright suffered the injury diving into a base while serving as a pinch-runner Saturday against the Dodgers.

With Wright missing his start, Boston’s rotation the next three days will be Eduardo Rodriguez Thursday, David Price Friday and Clay Buchholz Saturday. Buchholz will make his first start in over a month, as he last served as a starter on July 2, allowing six runs (three earned) over 4 1/3 innings in a 21-2 loss to the Angels.weei.com

I guess I'd like to know why Wright was a PR in the first place but I guess Farrell is smarter than me.

If Farrell was only willing to use a SP to pinch run because he didn't want to waste a reliever, Porcello, Pomeranz and Rodriguez were available (Price pitched). Are none of them faster and/or more athletic than Wright? Oh well.
