Indians designate veteran Wright for assignment

MLB: Indians at Tigers APR 9Jamey Wright’s time in the bullpen for the Cleveland Indians appears to be over. The journeyman reliever who had made a history of winning roster spots out of spring training had a 5.48 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and a 9/9 K/BB ratio over 18 relief appearances with the Tribe.

Wright spent last season as a member of the Kansas City Royals and had previous stops in Texas, Colorado, St. Louis, Milwaukee and San Fransisco. He has a career line of 83-117 with a 5.03 ERA in 438 big league appearances.

There doesn’t appear to be a ton of interest for him on a big league roster but if he chooses to accept a minor league assignment there’s a fair chance some team will call him up for a job in middle relief.  Wright has pitched his best baseball over the last four years of his career since being used strictly as a middle reliever.
