MLB report: Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright to miss rest of season

The Boston Red Sox said knuckleballer Steven Wright needs knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season. The team said Thursday that the right-hander will have an operation to repair the cartilage in his left knee next week.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said there wasn’t one thing that caused the injury. Wright pitched Saturday and came out without any complaints, according to Dave Dombrowski, the team’s president of baseball operations.

Wright, an All-Star in 2016, was 1-4 with an 8.25 ERA in five starts this season.
