Steven Wright Off ALDS Roster With Knee Issue, Heath Hembree Added

Steven Wright's balky knee acted up again on Friday night—making him unavailable to pitch in Game One ALDS win over The Evil Ones. An MRI showed inflammation and "a loose body" in the knee. Heath Hembree will replace Wright on the roster. Wright will be ineligible to play in the remainder of the ALDS—and also cannot play in the ALCS if Boston makes it that far. The knuckle-baller will be eligible to play in the World Series.
