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