Orioles Could Trade For Jaret Wright

According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles have talked to the Yankees about acquiring 31 year-old righthander Jaret Wright.

First the Yankees have to choose whether to buy Wright out for $4MM or pay him $7MM for the 2007 season.  If they don’t buy him out and do trade him to the Orioles, Wright could be reunited with former Braves pitching coach Leo Mazzone.  Wright had his only full season success under Mazzone in 2004.

Otherwise perhaps the Orioles would just sign Wright to a free agent contract.
