View Full Version : RHP Steven Wright to the 10 Day DL sprained left knee & Recall RHP Brandon Workman

Red Sox placed RHP Steven Wright on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 30, with a sprained left knee.
Wright has apparently had issues with the knee off and on since spring training. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined. The Red Sox also haven't revealed who will replace Wright in the rotation, but Henry Owens, Brian Johnson and Kyle Kendrick would all seem to be candidates.

Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Workman was off to a nice start at Pawtucket with eight scoreless innings, just one hit allowed and an 11/1 K/BB ratio. He'll likely work in long relief


Well I did call this out that Wright was either mentally or physically wrong. Good to see Workman back.

It sounds a little like "we needed to get him out of the rotation." MLB is expected to be very picky about the DL since it's been shortened to 10 days.

Hearing that Steven Wright will need knee surgery as early as next week. Could put him out for six months.

Farrell is a moron

How is Farrell related to Wright's knee injury? I haven't seen anything tying it to the base running blunder in LA or anything else like that. By all accounts the knee issue sprang up in ST this year.

BUT, if you're just saying that Farrell is a moron because it's true, well, I don't disagree.

This might be evil but I can't stand watching knuckleballers, and I had/have no hopes Wright could repeat the nice run he had "once".

Steven Wright will undergo season-ending surgery on his left knee.
Wright has been bothered by knee discomfort since spring training and a cartilage restoration procedure was the recommendation after his visit with multiple specialists this week. The veteran knuckleballer allowed 22 earned runs in 24 innings (five starts) this season for Boston.
