Dallas Latos — the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos — claims to have had an ugly incident during Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park, a 6-2 victory for host Pittsburgh. We’ll let her do the explaining:

At this point people on Twitter — mostly Pirates fans — are calling her a liar …

The Red Sox announced that starter Steven Wright underwent a left knee arthroscopy and debridement on Monday in New York. There is no timetable yet for his recovery, so it is still not known if he will be ready for spring training.

Wright, 34, was bothered by left knee issues throughout the 2018 season. He made four starts and 16 relief appearances totaling 53 2/3 innings, posting a 2.68 ERA with 42 strikeouts and 26 walks. Wright was on the ALDS roster but was removed due to the knee issue and did not appear in the postseason.

Wright is entering his second of three years of arbitration eligibility. He is due a raise on his $1.1 million salary. The Red Sox could non-tender him, but that seems unlikely.
