Farrell: Steven Wright Is A Potential '13 Sleeper

Wright And Wright
Manager John Farrell sees knuckleballer Steven Wright as the biggest potential "sleeper" in Boston's 2013 Spring Training camp. The new Sox skipper made the comment on WEEI's Hot Stove show on Thursday night. Wright was obtained from Cleveland for first-baseman Lars Anderson. In the minors last year, Wright was spectacular—posting a 2.54 ERA over 141 2/3 innings at Double A and Triple A. If the Red Sox need rotation depth at some point during the season, Wright could be a solution. Unlike the other Steven Wright, the hurler cannot do stand-up.
