Red Sox | Steven Wright dealing with concussion

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 18:53:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright (concussion) continues to deal with concussion symptoms, and the team will not rush the knuckleballer back. SP Matt Barnes might make another start in Wright's stead. Wright is eligible to return Friday, Aug. 21, but that is unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in at least one full start without any lingering effects of his injury.

Red Sox | Steven Wright to DL

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 09:30:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) didn't allow more than two earned runs in any of his last four starts, and he could re-enter the rotation if he's back immediately following his short DL stint. He's worth stashing in deeper AL-only leagues if he can return quickly.

Red Sox | Steven Wright starting Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:20:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Steven Wright is slated to start against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a 5.01 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in six starts for the Red Sox this year. The White Sox have been bad offensively for much of the year but have come alive in the last week. Avoiding Wright on FantasyScore is the smart move.

Red Sox | Steven Wright will start Saturday

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:12:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright will be re-called from Class AAA Pawtucket to start Saturday, July 25, against the Detroit Tigers, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has gone 3-3 in 12 games and five starts for the Red Sox this season. With an ERA of 4.84 and an xFIP of 4.99 on the season, FantasyScore owners should be staying away.

Red Sox | Steven Wright to start Monday

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 16:14:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright will start Monday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a low 4.98 strikeout out through 43 1/3 innings at the major league level this season. While Wright would offer tremendous cap relief on FantasyScore, it's far too risky of a play to seriously consider him.

Red Sox | Brian Johnson to start Tuesday

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:09:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox SP Brian Johnson will start against the Houston Astros Tuesday, July 21. The team has not yet announced a starter for the game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, July 20, although SP Steven Wright could be promoted from Class AAA Pawtucket to pitch on normal rest.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is one of the organization's top pitching prospects and he will be a high-risk, high-reward option in FantasyScore next week. Owners in AL-only and dynasty leagues should add him, while owners in universal leagues should also keep tabs on him. Wright has a 3.94 ERA in 21 career major league games, six of which were starts.

Red Sox | Steven Wright starting Sunday

Thu, 14 May 2015 11:51:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright will make the start against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 17, in place of SP Justin Masterson (shoulder).

Fantasy Tip: Wright will be as cheap as they come at FantasyScore for his Sunday start against the M's. It'll likely be just a spot start, and you should look to avoid him everywhere.

Red Sox | Steven Wright likely for Sunday

Wed, 13 May 2015 18:08:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright is likely to take the rotation spot of the injured SP Justin Masterson (arm) Sunday, May 17, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: With Masterson hitting the 15-day disabled list Wright might make two or perhaps three starts. FantasyScore players might find him to be a solid value.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly likely for Saturday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 07:09:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is likely to start Saturday, April 11, against the New York Yankees. Kelly impressed with his bullpen session Wednesday, April 8, and the team is leaning towards him starting over P Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($3,200, 6.4% of your cap) has shown flashes but has struggled to go deep into games. He's a low-end starting option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Steven Wright might start Saturday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 18:23:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright might make the start Saturday, April 11, against the New York Yankees if SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is not ready to come off the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Wright gets the nod FantasyScore owners likely want to avoid him on the road in a difficult environment.
