Wright signed to Minor League deal
Here’s another candidate for the bullpen: right-hander Jamey Wright.
The Indians signed the 35-year-old Wright to a Minor League contract with an invitation to camp. That’s now four veteran relievers brought in through Minors contracts, as Wright joins Jason Grilli, Saul Rivera and left-hander Mike Gosling.
Wright has pitched for six teams over the last 14 seasons, compiling an 82-115 record and 5.03 ERA in 420 games, including 246 starts. He went 3-5 with a 4.33 ERA for the Royals last year, leading the team with 65 appearances out of the bullpen. He logged a career-high 75 appearances for the Rangers in ’08.
The Indians now have 19 non-roster invitees coming to camp. Pitchers and catchers report in 12 days.
