Pirates, Royals Interested In Jamey Wright

The Pirates are interested in free agent reliever Jamey Wright, tweets Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.  Dutton notes that the Royals remain interested in re-signing him.

Wright, 35 later this month, soaked up 79 bullpen innings with a 4.33 ERA this year.  His walk rate was ugly, but unlikely most free agent relievers he posted a strong groundball rate (59.1%).  Wright earned $1.4MM for his efforts.
