Rangers release veteran right-hander Jamey Wright


Texas’ pitching staff certainly needs plenty of help, but apparently not enough to keep 40-year-old Jamey Wright around after a rough spring in which he allowed 11 runs in eight appearances.

Wright’s late-career resurrgence has been remarkable considering he wasn’t all that good in his twenties. During the past four seasons–starting at age 36–he’s thrown 276 innings with a 3.58 ERA.

As a rubber-armed veteran who can soak up innings in middle or long relief Wright may still have a little value to some teams.
