Red Sox Expect To Activate Steven Wright On Tuesday After Suspension


The Boston Red Sox are expected to activate Steven Wright on Tuesday following an 80 game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

“As of now, no red flags,” manager Alex Cora told reporters Monday afternoon.

Wright was served the suspension in early March. Cora confirmed Monday that the knuckle-baller addressed the suspension with the team ahead of the 2019 season, but said he was not present, per the Boston Globe’s Speier.

In an appearance on the “Bradfo Sho” podcast this week, Wright said he’s looking forward to rejoining the Red Sox and understands it will take time to gain back the respect and trust of the squad.

Wright went 1-0 across five appearances with Triple-A Pawtucket in June.
