Wright, Bucs agree to Minor League deal

|
PITTSBURGH -- Oft-injured pitcher Jaret Wright and the Pirates agreed on a Minor League contract Wednesday with an invitation to Spring Training.

Wright, a 15-game winner for Atlanta in 2004, had a 6.97 ERA while losing all three games he started for Baltimore last season. The right-hander pitched only in rehabilitation games after that because of a sore shoulder, but did not undergo surgery.

The 32-year-old Wright is 68-60 with a 5.09 ERA while pitching for the Indians, Padres, Braves, Yankees and Orioles since 1997. He started Game 7 of the 1997 World Series for Cleveland.

Wright would get an $800,000 salary if he's added to the Major League roster. He could earn an additional $1.75 million in performance bonuses based on relief appearances and games finished, or $1 million in bonuses based on starts.
