Steven Wright Suspended 15 Games For Domestic Abuse

Major League Baseball handed down a 15-game suspension today to Red Sox starting pitcher Steven Wright for violating the league's domestic violence policy. The suspension must be served when Wright is fully healthy—and cannot be carried out while the pitcher is on the disabled list. Wright is still recovering from right knee surgery. Last December, Wright was arrested in Tennessee for an incident involving his wife. He was formally charged with domestic assault and released on $2,500 bond.
