Boston Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright, who is battling a knee injury, threw a live batting practice on Saturday. He’s hopeful after throwing batting practice that he will not have to start the season on the disabled list.

“If I keep progressing the way I have been, there’s definitely a good chance that I’m going to be able to break with the team,” Wright said.

He threw a three-inning session on Saturday. He also threw a two-inning batting practice on Wednesday, March 14th.

While Wright is hopeful that he’ll start the season with the Big League team, the team has not commented on the idea. He’ll have to prove that he’s ready to go by pitching in a minor league game.

The Red Sox already have two starting pitchers, who are dealing with injuries during spring training. Drew Pomeranz and Eduardo Rodríguez are those starters, who have been limited due to injuries.

Depending on how he does in the minor league game that he would have to pitch to show the Red Sox that he’s healthy enough to start for the Red Sox, he would likely get the call from the team to start with Boston, especially with Pomeranz and Rodríguez missing time.
