RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Wright is a 30-year-old knuckleballer who made his mark as a September callup when the Red Sox were auditioning arms for their 2015 Opening Day roster. The results at Triple-A were significantly improved last season, as he showed much better control (72:23 K:BB in 100 innings with Pawtucket) while making 16 starts. His limited sample with Boston was also productive, as he carried a 22:4 K:BB and showed an increased ability to get outs on the ground, although his career rate (1.30 GO/AO) is more indicative of his baseline. If nothing else, Wright is a great story, and he should be considered a long shot for a place in the back of the Red Sox's rotation. Most likely, he'll serve as organizational depth at Pawtucket with an opportunity to contribute if injuries strike the team's rebuilt corps of starters at the big league level.

2014

Wright, a conventional pitcher turned knuckleballer, produced adequate results for Triple-A Pawtucket in 2013. He also made four appearances at the major league level, but was burdened by control problems. Prior to the season, Red Sox manager John Farrell was a big supporter of Wright coming off the right-hander's 2012 season, his first full year throwing the knuckler. Whether or not Farrell remains such an ardent supporter, Wright is likely to remain in the starting rotation at Pawtucket. He could be called on for an emergency start in 2014, but Boston will have at least two other starters (Allen Webster, Brandon Workman) at Pawtucket ahead of him.
