Dodgers sign pitcher Jamey Wright to minor league deal

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed veteran pitcher Jamey Wright to a minor league deal.

The 41-year-old right-hander sat out last season after being released by Texas at the end of spring training.

Wright pitched for the Dodgers in 2012 and again in 2014, mostly in a relief role although he started one game in his second season. Between those two stints he pitched for Tampa Bay, where current Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman worked.

Wright has also pitched for Colorado, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, San Francisco, the Cubs, Cleveland and Seattle. He would be in his 20th season in the majors if he makes the Dodgers' roster. He was a first-round draft pick of the Rockies in 1993.

Led by closer Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers' relief corps is crowded with younger talent, making Wright a long-shot to earn a spot.
