Boston insider Rob Bradford was the first to report that knuckleballer Steven Wright, a 2016 All-Star for the Sox who scuffled in 2017 after a late shoulder injury the year prior, has been arrested for a domestic assault incident.

While it serves to take some of the pressure off Wright, the resulting lawyer’s statement from his family does nothing but lend confusion to the situation.
Statement on behalf of Steven Wright’s family obtained by NBC Sports Boston, after Wright was arrested and charged with domestic assault: “… he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional.” https://t.co/coUtgOhSxq pic.twitter.com/uGRbxSWYre
