Steven Wright's 80-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program is coming to an end and he'll be able to rejoin his teammates June 25.

The skipper told reporters Wednesday that Wright spoke to the team just two days after was handed the suspension.

Wright also was rehabbing from cartilage restoration surgery -- the same procedure Dustin Pedroia underwent -- before his suspension took place. And even though Pedroia has taken an indefinite break from baseball, Cora sounds optimistic about Wright's recovery.

“He’s been feeling good,” Cora told MassLive. “All the feedback from that is that he’s been feeling great. Even when he worked out down there in Fort Myers. He’ll do his pitching stuff and then add more, like pitching fielding practice and doing his work in the gym and all that. So as of now, no red flags.”
