Steven Wright Suspended 80 Games For PED Violation

Red Sox RHP Steven Wright Suspended 80 Games for Testing Positive for PEDs

The Red Sox pitching staff, already not the strongest among World Series contending teams, took a serious hit when knuckleballer Steven Wright was suspended 80 games for testing positive for HGH.

"Unfortunately, we couldn't figure out how this particular substance got into my system", Wright said Wednesday at Boston's spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla., adding that he learned of the suspension Tuesday evening. If the Red Sox return to the postseason, they won't have Wright at their disposal, as he's now ineligible for the playoffs. Going forward, the club will not comment further on the matter.

Wright tested positive for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 (GHRP-2), according to the league, a violation of MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

"Although I do not dispute the validity of the test, I was shocked, as I have never intentionally ingested anything for performance-enhancing purposes", Wright said. "I have fully cooperated with Major League Baseball and will continue to try and identify the source of the result", Wright said.

"I was notified by Major League Baseball that I failed a test under the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program during this past offseason".

Wright missed nearly all of the 2017 season and part of the 2018 campaign with a left knee injury.
