Knuckleballer Wright To Make Spring Debut Wednesday

Coming off knee surgery last Summer, Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright is scheduled to toss two innings of live batting practice today—and could start a Spring game this Sunday. This is great news for the state of the Red Sox rotation, which is reeling from nagging injuries to three of its five projected starters. However, even if these sessions go well, Wright will likely start the season in minor league rehab assignments.
