The Boston Red Sox made a roster move Monday when they activated knuckleballer Steven Wright off the restricted list and placed right-hander Hector Velazquez on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Wright hasn’t pitched in the majors since last May when he underwent knee surgery, and manager Alex Cora said he expects the righty to be a valuable part of his bullpen, citing Wright’s ability to go multiple innings and reset the bullpen.

To hear Cora discuss Wright’s role, check out the “Red Sox Gameday Live” video above, presented by DCU.
