Knuckleballer Steven Wright Off To Hot Start In Pawtucket (Video)


Knuckleball pitchers are like a fine wine. They get better with age.

The Boston Red Sox saw that with Tim Wakefield. Now, they’re watching it happen with 29-year-old Steven Wright, who’s off to a hot start in Pawtucket with a 1-1 record, 1.35 ERA, 23 strikeouts and only five walks in three starts.

Wright likely would have had a chance to make the Boston Red Sox roster during spring training had he not suffered a sports hernia that required surgery. But now that he’s returned and dealing, it looks as though he has a chance to start in the big leagues soon if Brandon Workman misses a start due to suspension.

Check out an update on Wright from Tom Caron and Tim Wakefield in the video above.
