Steven Wright released by Red Sox

The Red Sox can use all the help they can get in improving their pitching staff, but apparently, that need doesn't extend to Steven Wright.

The Red Sox announced that they had released Wright Friday afternoon. Wright had spent parts of the previous seven seasons with the club, going 24-16 with a 3.86 ERA in 81 games, 44 of them starts. His best season was 2016 when he was named to the American League All-Star team and went 13-6 with a 3.33 ERA over 24 starts.
