Hot Stove Lunch: Wright on the mend; award week continues

Like Dustin Pedroia, Steven Wright underwent microfracture surgery in 2017. And like Pedroia, it's taking some time for Wright to fully recover.

Wright underwent an arthroscopic procedure Monday to clean up some loose bodies in the knee -- just as Pedroia did last August.

The hope is that Wright will be fully recovered by the time spring training begins. When I spoke to Wright the morning of the World Series parade late last month, he was fully confident he would be ready to resume a normal off-season after a period of a few weeks.
