After accepting minor league deals in seven straight years, free agent reliever Jamey Wright appears primed to receive a major league contract this winter.
According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Wright is currently deciding whether to return to the Rays for another season or sign with the Dodgers, who he pitched with in 2012. The veteran right-hander managed career-bests in his strikeout and walk rates this past season with Tampa Bay while posting a 3.09 ERA over 66 appearances, so he should be able to turn his late-career success into a nice contract.
Wright has pitched 18 seasons in the majors and will turn 39 years old later this month.
