Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright's domestic assault case was retired for one year by the Williamson County Courthouse in Tennessee, reports the Boston Herald. Wright was originally supposed to be in court Thursday after being arrested and charged with domestic assault Dec. 8. Wright and his wife Shannon released a joint statement through his lawyer, saying the pair was "committed to working together to improve our relationship." The case will be dropped if there are no additional offenses in the next 12 months. According to a statement from the family released through Wright's lawyer to NBC Sports Boston after the arrest, the incident was "purely emotional" and Wright "did not raise his hand."
