The Athletics have signed righthander Jamey Wright and assigned him to Triple-A Sacramento, according to the Pacific Coast League's transaction's page. The Indians released Wright late last week.
The 35-year-old threw 21.1 innings for Cleveland, posting a 5.48 ERA with as many walks (nine) as strikeouts. Oakland would be Wright's eighth big league team if he were to join them at some point. He's got a 5.03 ERA in 1723.1 career innings, a sneaky high total.
How the hell…? Those innings, really?
Jamey Wright will never leave MLB.
