Wright Ready to 'Knuckle-Down' After Good Side Session

Steven Wright had a positive side session today— afterward telling The Providence Journal's Tim Britton his shoulder felt "100% healthy".  On Friday, Wright will pitch live batting practice, and then progress to the standard Spring Training regimen for starters. Should things proceed normally, Wright will likely begin in the starting rotation for Boston—although that role could change based on the performance and/or health status of Drew Pomeranz and Eduardo Rodriguez.
