Steven Wright is ready to resurface in Red Sox rotation

Steven Wright is ready to resurface in Red Sox rotation

Steven Wright walked down the Kenmore Square sidewalk Tuesday morning, heading for another meeting with the Red Sox' medical staff at Fenway Park. There was no hitch in his step, or doubts in his mind.

It was a far cry from five months earlier.

Wright, the pitcher who entered 2017 spring training with more expectations than at any time in his life, had been feeling bad for himself, and his team. The 33-year-old finally succumbed to his knee soreness after just five starts, ultimately undergoing the kind of surgery that ends seasons. And this time, it also put a halt to the optimism the knuckleballer had finally uncovered after years of major league uncertainty.

"It was depressing for a while because not only am I not with the guys, I'm not even at the field. What got me through was how much it hurt just to move," Wright told WEEI.com. "Then I was able to cope with it and then I started feeling better, so then I was getting that itch again even if I was limited what I could do. It took a while to get to that point [of not being depressed] because even though I'm young in the knuckleball world, I'm not young in the baseball world. I'm 33 years old and I get it. But it took a while for me to be like, 'OK, I can come back from this,' because of how excruciating the pain was after the surgery."
