RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
