Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright has surgery on left knee
The team says Dr. Riley Williams operated Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Williams also performed a debridement to remove damaged tissue.
Wright was removed from the Division Series roster following the opener against the New York Yankees, a day after reinjuring his left knee during a workout.
An All-Star in 2016, Wright started the 2018 season late following recovery from left knee surgery and a 15-game domestic violence suspension. The 34-year-old right-hander made four starts and six relief appearances, went back on the disabled list in late June because of the knee, then returned in September.
Wright went 3-1 with a 2.68 ERA in four starts and 16 relief appearances.
