Pitchers Carson Smith and Steven Wright agree to 1-year deals with the Boston Red Sox

MLB


BOSTON — Pitchers Carson Smith and Steven Wright, both coming off injuries, agreed to one-year contracts with the Boston Red Sox that avoided salary arbitration.

Wright gets a non-guaranteed salary of $1.1 million under the deal announced Monday, and Smith receives $850,000.

Smith missed most of the past two seasons while recovering from an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. Since he was acquired by the Red Sox, the reliever has appeared in eight games over two years.

An All-Star in 2016, Wright made just five starts last season. The knuckleballer had left knee surgery in May.

Ten Boston players remain eligible for arbitration, including shortstop Xander Bogaerts, outfielders Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr., and pitchers Drew Pomeranz and Eduardo Rodriguez. Players and teams are scheduled to swap proposed salaries Friday.
