Dodgers sign well-traveled Jamey Wright to minors deal

2 Comments

Jamey Wright will try to make the Dodgers his 11th big-league team after agreeing to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Wright sticking around this long is pretty remarkable for a guy with an 85-121 record and 4.93 ERA, but lots of those ugly numbers came while starting for the Rockies early in his career and he’s actually been a decent middle reliever for a while now.

Wright has a 4.12 ERA in 367 innings since moving to the bullpen full time in 2007, including a 3.16 ERA in 68 innings for the Mariners last season, although his K/BB ratio during that same five-year span was terrible at 235/175.
