Red Sox's Matt Barnes may make another start for Steven Wright


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2015) With Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright still dealing with concussion symptoms and unlikely to be available for his next start, the team may turn to pitcher Matt Barnes, reports MLB.com.

"At this point, I think we haven't quite determined that," interim manager Torey Lovullo said. "We feel like Matt threw the ball well enough, and if Steven's not ready, I think that's a direction we would consider."

Barnes allowed six runs over five innings during his lone start this season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Wright allowed two runs on five hits over five innings and left with a two-run lead. The Boston bullpen couldn't protect it, however. Since joining the rotation, Wright has lasted five innings or fewer in three of five starts. 

Wright walked a season-high five batters in the game. 


Red Sox SP Steven Wright stymies Yankees' bats on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/5/2015) Red Sox starter Steven Wright was fantastic in his outing against the Yankees on Wednesday. The knuckleballer recorded a complete-game win, holding the Yankees to one run on four hits over eight solid innings. He walked two and struck out nine, a career-high, in the 2-1 victory.

Wright (5-4) cruised through the first six innings, throwing up zeroes along the way. The only run Wright allowed came on a solo home run by Carlos Beltran in the seventh inning. He lowered his ERA to 4.12 with the strong effort.

This was Wright's first career complete game. Wright has put together consecutive quality outings, after allowing two runs over seven innings in his last start.


Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright baffles White Sox


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Red Sox starter Steven Wright put together a solid outing Thursday, keeping the White Sox off balance with his knuckleball in an 8-2 win. 

Wright fell behind early, giving up a two-run, first-inning home run, but stabilized himself and went six innings, scattering six hits. Wright's knuckleball fluttered effectively, as he struck out eight Chicago hitters. 

With the win, Wright (4-4) picked up his first victory since being enlisted to make spot starts in the Red Sox's rotation. 


Red Sox SP Steven Wright clobbered at Fenway


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) The Tigers turned the fluttering knuckleball of Red Sox starter Steven Wright into line drives far too often Saturday afternoon.

The result was that Wright was off the mound in the fifth and lamenting his fourth defeat when it was over. He allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits in 4 1/3 innings with two walks and four strikeouts. 

Wright never found a groove. Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos were his chief tormentors. The former slammed a solo homer in the first and the latter hit a two-run double in the fourth. Wright was removed after a double and walk in the fifth.

His recent stint as a starter has not gone well. He has allowed 13 earned runs in his last 13 innings pitched.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was placed on the disabled list again, manager John Farrell announced before Saturday's game, per the Boston Globe.

Pedroia reaggravated the hamstring injury that had sent him to the DL from June 24 to July 17. The injury didn't result from one specific incident, but from the wear and tear of playing. He'll be shut down for the near future. 

Pedroia will be replaced on the roster by pitcher Steven Wright in the short term, but Farrell said that the team would need an infielder soon.

Red Sox demote P Steven Wright, add C Erik Kratz to roster


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) The Red Sox have optioned knuckleballer Steven Wright to the minors and placed catcher Erik Kratz on the roster, the Boston Globe has reported.

Wright performed decently as a sometimes-starter, but pitched exclusively out of the bullpen recently. He allowed five runs in his last 3 2/3 innings to motivate the demotion.

The 35-year-old Kratz earned just four at-bats with Kansas City earlier in the year before being waived, then signed by the Red Sox.


Farrell chooses Joe Kelly over Stephen Wright for rotation spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Red Sox right-handed knuckleballer Steven Wright has been consistent and effective as a starter. Joe Kelly has been inconsistent and greatly ineffective.

No matter. John Farrell has booted the former to the bullpen and left the latter in the rotation.

Wright has pitched between 5 and 6 1/3 innings and allowed two or three runs in each of his six starts to post a 2-2 record and 4.01 ERA. Kelly has given up at least five runs in four of his 10 outings. He is 2-4 with a 5.40 ERA.

But Farrell belives Kelly has more upside and Wright is versatile enough to make the transition. "Both have pitched well enough to either remain in the rotation or earn a rotation spot," he told ESPN. "But when you set aside a couple of bumps Joe Kelly has had of late ... he's got the ability to be a dominant starter."

Among those bumps was a start against Minnesota in which he surrendered seven runs on eight hits in 1 2/3 innings. But Kelly rebounded in his last two opportunties by yielding only two runs in 11 innings.


Red Sox SP Steven Wright gets no-decision on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Red Sox starter Steven Wright was left with a no-decision in Thursday's series-finale against the Twins. Wright gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits over six innings. He struck out two and did not issue a walk, as the Red Sox fell 8-4.

The big blow against Wright was a three-run home run from Torii Hunter in the top of the fifth inning with the Red Sox leading 4-0. Wright then allowed an un-earned run to score in the sixth to knot the game up at four.

"Today I felt pretty good out there. I had really good knuckleballs and was able to keep it down and change speeds," Wright said, per MLB.com. "One bad pitch changed the outcome of the game for me."

Wright's ERA went up to 4.01 on the season. He has been fairly decent since moving into the rotation on May 17. He has given up three runs or fewer in all four starts this season.

He's expected to make his next start on Thursday in Baltimore. 


Red Sox's Farrell: We're not planning to stick with six-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) The Red Sox will return to a five-man rotation following this weekend's series against the Athletics, manager John Farrell told reporters Thursday.

“Our plan is not to [stick with six guys],” Farrell said, per WEEI.com. “We’ll get through this weekend where we need all six starters, but coming out of the off-day [Monday], it’s our intent to get back to five starters. We have the remainder of this next series to work through that.”

Farrell said Eduardo Rodriguez will slide between Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello in the rotation. It appears Wade Miley also as a spot in the rotation, so the final spot is down to Joe Kelly and Steven Wright.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Red Sox using six-man rotation to give starters rest


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Without an off-day on Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to give his starters an extra day's rest heading into the weekend. So, the team will call up prospect Eduardo Rodriguez to start Thursday's game against the Rangers, with the rest of the rotation being pushed back a day.

Steven Wright, who was originally scheduled to go on Thursday, will now pitch Friday. He will be followed by Wade Miley and Joe Kelly. Clay Buchholz will open the three-game set with the Twins at home on Monday. 

The Red Sox don't have a scheduled off-day until June 8.


Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright allows two runs in win on Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright allowed two runs on four hits in  6 1/3 innings of work in Boston's 8-3 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Wright's only blemish came in the first inning when he allowed three of the first four hitters to reach safely, including back-to-back doubles by Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun, leading to two runs. Wright settled down and got out of the inning without anymore damage.

"For me, it's just another day," Wright said to WEEI.com. "If you try and put too much pressure on yourself you’re just going to disappoint and you're going to try and over do things, over work. For me, I am going to try and go in there and throw quality knuckleballs in the strike zone. They are going to put it in play, it's a contact pitch. Today we were fortunate to get balls right at some guys, guys made some good plays. I went as deep as I could."

Wright, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 3.68 in 22 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Rangers.


Red Sox starter Steven Wright drops first start of season on Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) In his first start of the season, Red Sox starter Steven Wright (1-1) yielded three runs (two earned) in five innings and was stuck with the loss Sunday against the Mariners.

Wright served up a homer to hot-hitting Brad Miller, a solo shot in the fifth.

Wright was starting in place of injured Justin Masterson (shoulder), who's currently on the disabled list.

"I'll be ready in a couple days," Wright said to MLB.com. "I threw about 85 pitches and I'm just ready for whatever [manager John Farrell] wants me to do, whether it's another start, going to the 'pen. For me it doesn't matter. I just have to go throw good knuckleballs over the plate and just hope for the best."

Wright's next scheduled start has not been announced as of Sunday night.
