Steven Wright (knee), Red Sox discussing surgery
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Steven Wright (knee) is meeting with the club on Wednesday to discuss the possibility of surgery.
Wright landed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday due to a sprained left knee in a continuation of issues that began back in spring training. If the 32-year-old right-hander opts for surgery, his 2017 season will likely be over.
Wright's 8.25 ERA this season is pretty ugly, but his 5.08 xFIP suggests it hasn't all been his fault. He's also twirled a 1.88 WHIP and 11.4 strikeout percentage while going 1-3 in 24 innings (five starts).
